Old Diesel Pusher RV Conversion

Old Diesel Pusher RV Conversion, 1948 GM TDH-3610

Found this one on Craigslist, interesting old diesel boost RV conversion based on an extremely rare trainer, only three of which have ever been built by GM, and one of them is being offered here, claims the owner. The 1948 GM TDH-3610 bus was built as a regular transit bus operating in the post-war era, 30 feet long, and still with its original diesel engine backed up by an original automatic transmission. Only 17000 miles since the converted work was done in the past.

Old Diesel Pusher RV Conversion

Not for a poor guy or newbie, this 68-year coach still brings its original 2-stroke 4-71 Detroit Diesel engine, for sure sounds terrific to be heard. "Old Diesel Pusher RV Conversion" is not as cheap as imagined, rarity makes it have value, but as usual older machinery are burning much fuel makes higher operational costs, and is not easy to care for. Hard to find spare parts and workshops that can handle if there are problems during the trip making it less suitable for long journeys in the current or future.

Not like a classic car were out just for fun, gatherings, or event show, more authenticity is more valuable. The motorhome is a completely different thing, you will invest a lot of money and take a long time to modernize this one, but we think is worth it if you're one mechanic expert and want to be different in the parking lot.

Great appearance. It's great to see her running down the highway wearing a lot of modern equipment inside and out, it could be worse if left to languish or rot in the yard. So sad if it happens, hopefully, they will find a camping enthusiast with a big budget and a better sense of interior design so that it is comfortable to live in and doesn't seem as creepy as in the old house, as it looks today.

The Coach was posted about a month ago on Craigslist and is still online when we writing here, for $35000 OBO in Graham, Washington.
