Well, here's another Eagle that caught up with me...

I went to unlock a vehicle in an RV park and there it was! The owners are down from Wisconsin for the Winter. Their Eagle is a 1961 Model 01, VIN # 6168. They don't do much online, but they were thrilled to have me take these pics and said I could gladly post them on this board. He really didn't know a whole lot about the Eagle's history, so I filled him in alittle. I'm going to visit him again before he heads back home and take him some literature on his bus' history. I also printed out the Eagle Production page that lists his bus. I found out that his bus was part of the Continental Central Lines fleet (#3715). Does anyone know where they were located? Maybe Clifford can give us alittle history.

This bus has an 8V-71, and a 10-speed Road Ranger that he installed himself. He is a mechanic, so he is able to do alot of the mechanical work himself, however the interior was already done when they purchased it a few years ago.

(Look for the Harley and the Chihuahua :lol: )

We do want some of those cards, by the way, we're just hoping and praying we'll solve our identity crisis soon, LOL, so we'll know what to put on them.

Good job Manny,the driver area shot brought back some not so good memories of a 62 eagle we had.No P. S.,4 speed........you get in a parking lot and try to turn around and you would be sweating in Jan.
We pulled into a motel about 2 am and I was trying to park, I was fighting the wheel, my elbow hit the horn and it stuck.I was beating on the horn button and after about 60 seconds I got it stopped.The night manager came out and asked me if that could happen again before we left ? He let us remain there for the night.
