1968 Crown RV

Had this conversion for 22 years now. Real dependable coach. Just yesterday got back to South Carolina with it. Went all the way to Arizona and back, not one problem! Runs great and gets a tad over 10 MPG! Brand new tires. Has 400 watts of solar on the roof with 6 new golf cart deep cycle batterys and a new charge controller and inverter. Totally self contained!!
Many other things which are too much to list, but this busses running gear is brand new along with a bunch of stuff included which I will not be needing anymore. Getting old and feeble. Call me at 1-760-703-5898 about the coach. Or email me direct at badbuttbilly@gmail.com
My name is Gary. Trying to get 12,000 bucks for it. But will consider offers. Cash only and must come to Charleston SC or will deliver to Georgia and Florida. Remember to call me and I will tell ya a bunch more things about the Crown that are worth saying.
Thanks. It would be worth your time to come to Cottageville SC (Charleston area) see it and take a ride in it to see what it is made of.

Here is a video I just took a few minutes ago. If you want more let me know. I think my older post has some videos also.

Be sure to click on this video.

Not in the market myself, but x2 in posting pics.
They go a long way in promoting what you have, to a much wider audience.
Good luck on your sale...

Thanks for adding your video. It is a really cool style vintage bus that looks nice on the outside. If it wasn't a manual trans, I might have had to rethink my present day conversion project!!!

Looks like an awesome bus.

If I didn't have a bus under construction in my driveway right now, I would be looking at a trip to SC.

Good luck with the sale.

That's what happens when you offer a nice bus at a very reasonable price.

I'm sure that posting a quality ad and being responsive to questions helped too.

My only bitch is that the bus didn't wind up in my driveway.....
