When I first saw that picture of the Series 60 with a miter box, I scratched my head.  Then Van's post clarified that it was an 01 which have much more length to work with.

It was mentioned that this was a Sundance conversion.  Some of you knew Marv Roberts.  He passed away a few years ago, but his wife Hazel is doing well - great lady.

We come across many different engine set ups in Eagles, especially the model 01's. The Sundance conversion is quite the machine, owned by a fella named Vern, Clifford. His buddy Jerry (also from Parump) owns this 01 with a BC Cummins engine

Here's another 01 from S. Dakota with a 8-92 in it

 Years ago when his shop was located in St. George, Ut. I walked in the back door to look at an Eagle that was in progress, I did not have my wallet outstretched in my hands so he threw me out in about 20 seconds..>>>Dan ( Later a friend of mine bought that unfinished Eagle from the bank for a song after he went BK)

We have known Marv and Hazel since the 70's when they were the ranch managers at a membership ranch in WY.  He used to drive an Eagle bus from Denver to the ranch and back each weekend.

They were absolute opposites.  Hazel was just a wonderful person to know.  As was noted, he did good work.  After he left St George, I went to his personal shop in Hill City, KS to get some bay doors for my bus.  He had a finished Eagle in one end of the shop and was working on another in the main shop area.

He had terrible people skills the whole time I knew him.  Talked to his brother several times over the past few years (he still owns an Eagle) and he is a very nice guy.

Sorry about the thread drift.
