Selling some of our Family collection to fund some other projects and restorations !

Please read title information. Motorhome was purchased as a parts or restorationvehicle and does not have a title. will come with Bill of sale only and is being sold for parts/project only.

Up for auction is this GMC motorhome. Now this thing is rare !!

We are unsure on the exact year but appears to be a 1947-1953 model based on the emblem style. We aquired this in a property purchase and has been sitting on the land for many years hidden from the public and nestled in the pine trees.

We have not been able to find anything like this with this grille style and a camper conversion on the internet. The interior appears to have been done at the some time that the Van was built. You can tell the wood on the inside is old and it was designed to be a camper. Could not find anything on the history of these.

Some of the later ones were produced by Grumman for GMC but we are not sure on this one. We could not find one like it anywhere online.

It has a pop open window or sliding window on the RH side next to where the driver would sit. There is a bed in the back with a bunk on top. It has a 2 burner stove with full counter and sink along with a closet and many drawers for storage.

The engine is a GMC inline 6 cylinder and will need to be rebuilt or replaced. The valve cover for the motor is on the floor of the motorhome.

The body looks to be really straight for a motorhome of this era. there are a few dings/dents but very minimal for its age. There are some signs of rust showing through on some of the tin panels.

The roof vent is missing on the roof so there is some water damage on the roof in that area. Also some of the floor feels soft under the pop out window and also the step up near the entry door.

This motorhome is one of the coolest vintage RV's or campers we have seen and would be one of the neatest old trucks on the road once restored.

1 trip to the car wash and over 10 people stopped to ask about it ! What a head turner !

we could not find any makers marks or body tags on the body of this motorhome so we were not able to find the body number on it. There is probably a frame number somewhere on this van but we are not familiar with where that would be located.
