Default The Brown Crown

This is my 1976 Crown conversion. I have been working on it now for nearly 3 years and have really had a great time doing it. The bus is equipped with a Detroit Diesel 671 engine and a Fuller 910RT 10-speed manual transmission. The project is still a work in progress, but finished to the point where I can camp and travel in it. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I have really enjoyed looking at the great work the rest of you have done with your projects!

Here are some early photos of the conversion work. I started with the shower and bathroom area and then some closet space near the back bed area.

Nice work!!! I really like the looks of those old Crown and Gilligs, I guess I like well rounded things.
