Coach build date was Nov 4, 1973 as a 1974 model.

Here is the coach pulled out of the garage that has protected it ever since the coach was built.

Here is John, the original owner. When he purchased it, he paid a couple to fly to the factory in Santa Clara, CA and pick up the coach and drive it to Highpoint, NC.

Another view. Note the front air dam and the side panels added to the bottom of the sides of the coach. These fill in the larger coach to ground gap created when he changed the wheels over to 22.5 wheels and tires. The panels are fiberglass.

John made these hubcaps for the coach.

The hubcaps are aluminum.

The identifying plate next to the passenger door.

He converted the coach to a Detroit 8.2 turbo diesel. While the coach has about 400,000 chassis miles, the current engine only has about 20,000 miles. The coach also has an Allison 1000 5spd transmission with overdrive.

Note the neat job John did converting the tail light assemblies to LED units. The backup lights are also LED and are located in cutouts in the bumper.

This is the left side of the engine compartment with the engine on the right and the Kubota diesel generator on the left.

A little bling!
