All those pics and no pic of the bathroom, genny, or engine. The front setup is nice, the exterior looks to be in good shape. That fact sheet is confusing.

Yes this is the original bus that I redid starting about twelve years ago.  I since have bought the mci you see on my posts. I took the coach down to the skin and it is well insulated has peninsula windows thru out.  I am a full timer so it is hard to sell the coach.   Craigslist only lets you post 4 pictures I would gladly send more pics to you by email.  I did a quick post about craigslist because I don't think we are allowed to post for sale ads here.  What else can I clarify for you?

    There are 2 here in the Indpls, In area that have a price of $5000.00 1956-4104.  A 1959-4104 for $6000.00  I wouldn't

   hesitate to jump in either one and drive across the country.

Mike, that is all the seller has on the Craigslist ad. Click the link and email him to see if he will send you photos and a phone #.

I think this one that Jumpman found looks to be better than most in this price range. I am sure there is some wiggle room built in.

Below is what we are talking about for the archives:



1956 GM PD4104 Bus Conversion - $5000 (Franklin TN)


Bonnie is a 1956 PD4104 GM bus which I converted in the middle 1980ís so we could take our five kids and go camping. She was designed with space efficiency in mind.

She has a 17 Gal electric water heater, 100 fresh and 100 holding tanks, a 5 KW Onan Generator, 2 13.5 roof airs, a 4 burner stove with oven, and a Norcold refrigerator

The bunk area opposite the Bath is modular and can be removed to put in additional closets or a computer room or whatever.

The back room has foton bedding. Each side opens partially for a BIG twin or fully for a bigger than King. There is also a place for a post table in the back room so the kids could play a game on a table while traveling.

The 671 Detroit was rebuilt in 1994 in New Jersey by the Detroit - Allison dealership. Since then she has had about 60,000 miles put on her.
I had Shepherd power steering installed in 1995 ( the smartest thing I ever did).

I built a 1990 Eagle Bus and put in 2 slide outs which I began using in 2006. Bonnie Blue 1 has been sitting since then. She will need new batteries and I would put on new tires as they have been sitting. They hold air but The should be changed out.
Call Bill @ 615 394 5911 for additional details.

Sometimes you gotta travel to get the deal.  We just drove 1200 miles ONE WAY to get our bus.
