First one I have ever seen! How about you? A straight eight and what looks to be a 4 speed. Also looks like the streering wheel is back from the winshield 4 or 5 feet. Can't be to easy to drive.

For once I'm GLAD something's far from me; if he ever listed it for realistic money, and it was close, I'd be gettin' into trouble.............. [:o)]

Want the instant attention of an ENTIRE INTERNATIONAL MEET? Buy this guy, refurbish and restore it and bring it to an SDC International Meet. I've never seen anything like it! This is another example of why I love eBay. You never know what's coming out of the woodwork.

Did you notice how far back the driving position was? That would be like having your windshield mounted at the end of your hood[:0]

"Did you notice how far back the driving position was? That would be like having your windshield mounted at the end of your hood"

Yea, I thought that too. I would sure take some getting used to,and I don't think it would ever "corner" very well.
That roof gets me. It sure looks like a boat.

Your attitude about this thing is probably spot-on... which just reaffirms the fact that I have issues......[:I][:o)]

Even for the period, it appears intended for the person who wanted something truly unique and useless. It would take someone with real money to burn to restore this and then display it as how not to design a motorhome.[V]
