    There was one of these house cars in the RV museium in Elkhart, In. That I believe used to belong to Mae West. Don't remember if it was a Studebaker or not.

    I forgot to mention, the stove actually works, it has a very large water tank underneath, and on the driverside, there is an awning that appears to be more like a tent.

    I've lived in Covina my whole 50 years. Reynolds Buick is still in the same location today on Citrus and Badillo. Great pictures, thanks for posting them!

    It reminds me more of the inside of a rich guy's rail car! That is about the coolest thing ever.

    OK, another Hamb'er has pm'd me that the current owner got pissed that I posted the pics. Oh Well....It did allow me to find out that there were actually 3 of these that were almost identical. Two of them had the Dictator 8 engines, this is one of them.....the other was destroyed in FL in Hurricane Donna. The 3rd had the Dictator 6 engine and has been located in Canada. One of my close friends has located, and purchased an International RV in South America and will be hopefully be getting a full restoration, which I will be part of and will post about it. The knowledge and history of our fore-fathers is lost when people get pissed over simple chit.... but don't worry folks, I will never let it get me down.... restoration shows dedication

    Thanks for posting pics...it is always nice to ask first...but I'm glad you didn't...

    That thing is 50 different kinds of beautiful. Considering the end that most RV's meet, it's really amazing that this is so well preserved...

    too cool...

    Sorry the owner didn't like your posting of the pictures. :confused: I would like to communicate with him if it is at all possible. Pictures of my 1925 Studebaker "house car" is at this link ... http://www.lastchancemarina.com/studebaker.htm My grandfather had this custom built in Cambridge, Ohio in 1924-25. I started the restoration of it when I was 14 years old.

    saw that Stude 30 yrs ago when I lived in Greenville SC. The man who owned it then also had a couple Rolls Silver Ghosts and some other real rare old cars. He was retired at the time, so I wouldn't know whether he's still living or not. When I saw it, it had been in his barn for several years. Can't even remember the exact location, but seems like he lived between Easley and Pickens. I do remember the name of the man who owned it at that time, and would be interested in knowing if he's still the owner. If mottsrods wants to PM me, that'd be cool.
