Clifford posted this on FB and wanted me to post it here.

Anybody looking for a Eagle,I am trying to help sell Sonnie Gray's Eagle it has a 3406 Cat engine and the bogie has been moved to the tag position so he could run 298:1 rear gears with a 740.
Nothing fancy on the interior but a good solid bus if interested let us know here asking 30k but open to all offers.

The Eagles International Roster says that this bus is a '72 model 05.

I have a bunch of engine conversion photos that Sonnie sent me for the engine conversion seminar we developed. Top quality work.

As I recall, this used to be Delbert McClinton's bus.

There is no contact listed. I would be glad to "field" questions and/or facilitate communications with the family

Paul, thanks for getting this thread started.

I have added the listing on our website: http://eaglesinternational.net/category/bus-parts-for-sale

The buses for sale page on our website is still the highest visited page with some pretty decent traffic.

I have many more photos, but I think these photos show the quality of work that Sonnie put into this bus

I don't have any finished interior photos. Everything Sonnie sent me involved early construction. Have a few more of the interior construction, but nothing that would help those looking for finished interior shots.

As has been said, the interior is pretty basic. The great value of the bus is the mechanical work - just amazing. The Cat (mechanical), HT-740, and direct drive into a truck rear end makes this Eagle about as bullet proof as one can imagine.

The interior was done for Patty and a wheel chair pretty basic but served it's purpose for years he had plans to redo the interior he just left the earth too soon

I was just looking at the pictures I posted and noticed that the interior was spray foamed. Another valuable asset.

I can't believe that someone has not snapped this up. I think it is an amazing value.
