This is a 1969 MCI Challenger bus conversion with a beautiful polished aluminum exterior and polished aluminum Alcoa wheels. This full size motor coach is fully equipped with every conceivable feature and has clearly been treasured since new. The odometer reads 26,839 which may reflect the miles since the professional conversion and the rebuilding of the 8 cylinder diesel engine with commercial automatic transmission.
There is a massive amount of interior space as well as extensive storage both inside and underneath. There are two separate bathrooms with vanities as well as a separate shower. Full-time living ready thanks to two huge cedar closets plus extensive drawers and cabinets. A 15kW diesel generator powers all onboard systems. Forward and rear air conditioning too!
This is the perfect vehicle to treasure as a time capsule or to update whenever the new owner feels it desirable. The bus is currently started and run weekly. All tires have excellent tread.
The base vehicle that the conversion was built upon is the famous MC-7 commercial bus...one of the best built commercial vehicles of the time. It was designed to replace Greyhound's Scenicruiser fleet which was averaging nearly 14 years old in 1968.
During its production and Greyhound operating period, the MC-7 represented the current state of intercity coach design with three axles, 40-foot length, and a high seat platform, allowing for substantial underfloor luggage space and absence of wheel-well intrusion into the passenger floor The MC-8 and MC-9 which followed in later years did not change this configuration but rather refined some of the details and updated the styling. Some 2,550 MC-7s were delivered over six years of production.
If you are in the market for a one of these beautiful bus conversions that still stand out amongst the finest of new RVs then call me today!
This classic motorhome is in good condition and represents the best available components and fittings of its era. There is the need for some minor cleaning and perhaps updating as it has not been used in many years. However, its started and run weekly. A test drive is possible.
Steering lines and fluids all replaced November 2019.
