Pre-67, noted by the tag instead of a bogie and the way the engine is set in (lots of room behind engine)
Sorry that's as close as I can get due to modifications. Serial number would help.. Smiley Smiley Smiley

That's kinda what I thought, it was a 01, I just don't understand why some guys want to chop off the classic looks of an old coach.
like grafting a 68 corvette front clip on a 58 model.
It is what it is.... Cry

So sad to see a classic 01 that's been modified! To each his own I guess.....

I would guess it to be '67 - '68. A VIN # would be nice.


I changed mine back like Clifford said, it looks so much better!  Cool I didn't modify the front, a previous owner had. Must have punched somebody!  Roll Eyes

Yes, we do have the last Model 01 made by Silver Eagle. Pretty darn proud of that fact too!  Cool
