Post The Venturing Violet - 1990 Thomas Built Chevrolet V8

Available & drive away ready NOW!

Location: Knox County (Centerburg), Ohio
Price: $9,499

Violet was originally a church transport bus in Tennessee, saw very little snow so no salt damage! She spent one season up in Michigan as a mobile "hunting cabin" before she became ours. We removed the interior installed by the first owner and replaced it with top shelf materials. She needs a bath but is otherwise solid as a rock and very dependable.

We love Violet and she has no major issues, we're having a baby and choosing to stay near family instead of road living!
