Welcome! Nice looking coach you found. Start yourself a Bus Project page and post as many pictures and stories you want. I'm sure you will be changing updating as you go along, it's a great place to have a little history to look back on.

Wow! Very nice! Can you please start a Project thread and include these pics and the description you have posted. That way all of the information on your coach is in one place, along with any comments.

My first bus. 1968 Silver Eagle


WWW

« Reply #577 on: May 28, 2015, 03:13:15 PM »

Just purchased my first bus a 1968 Silver Eagle. Paid just $4500.00 It starts and runs like a champ, but the interior is now stripped and in the process of wiring it to my liking. The 6.5 KW Onan needs a new carburetor, and there are no holding tanks on board so I have my work cut out for me. Both steers are in great shape but the rears show some sidewall weathering but good tread depth.

Lucky for me, Cowells in Joplin is just a couple hours away. My intention is to install and interior that sleeps 8 with shower, crapper, and kitchen. Then use it to travel up and down Baja carrying 6 surfers/divers and stopping at the good surf and diving spots on 4 week trips. I am willing to read all replies, suggestions, and help that I can get. I look forward to being and avid reader and contributor to this forum.
