Here's my "Moon Unit" if the attachments work.
It has a 455 Olds front wheel drive ala Toronado.
1976 Argosy Airstream
Ok now I want to travel America in a motor home.Its the mobile bat cave.
This one is in Wales.
Mobile house of prayer.
I like these early REOs and Autocars.It would make a great little motor home.
This is Tits!!!! I want it soooooo bad....
Thought you all would get a kick outta this.
Not a mobile home, but still very badass!!!
one ground..... one air
Yes it would, now try to find one like that!
Didn't see this one posted.. was tagged as a '37 Hunt Housecar
I thought this was cool.
I really want one of these...wanted one since they were new!!!
I like it. And I suspect it has 2 more slide-outs on the other side. Gary
The Presto Cottage as seen on http://theoldmotor.com/
I saw at least one other UltraVan here. The unit with the blue stripes. It now belongs to a friend in the Florida Panhandle. This is the one we bought four years ago. Has a 48,000 mile stock original Corvair drivetrain. A 1969. Our plan was to swap in a late model GM front wheel drive unit in the rear. Shit happens and it still sits in the yard waiting.
How about this one. Santa's Rocket Ship. I remember when it sat in a surplus yard near Sauk City , Wisconsin. It's now in Alaska.
Here is the story. http://jalopnik.com/5717297/a-brief-history-of-santas-rocket-ship
Someone had already used this one for a camper.
Mercedes, hollowed out logs, Cadillacs with campers, VW's............
Traditional hot rods??????? Not in 15 pages.
You think that could be because the title clearly says "hamb friendly motor homes" old hot rods and old campers do go together for some of us.
Is that real or a photoshop???
Can someone please get more Info on this!!!!
Crazy cool!! That really stretches sensitiv skin!
What do you mean; No hot rods? If this aint a hot rod was is? Its build time specific, using parts from the junkyard and put together in a back street after hours, by some American guy using old American know-how.
How else would you go camping? 50s merc and a airstream?
Futurliner, yellowstone or pre-70 school bus? The rest i mostly out of the 70s, not exately HAMB material, or even cool. In my book that is!!
Thats RV is the bastard son of a chopped merc and a truck. They might have play a little with sterioids, how else does it get that big.
Check these out:
Too bad you weren't around in the early sixties when all of the "traditional" speed equipment manufacturers were one upping one another with their motorhomes. The Hacienda in Las Vegas had an RV park and many of the guys parked there for the first couple of SEMA shows. Bobby and Don Spar (B&M) actually started building custom motorhomes and every body in the business was driving Sportscoaches to events.
Hey it's wearing a pomp!
I wonder what it looks like inside.. probably sounds like a soup can insides lol
PM me...I got laid off recently.
