12/1/2021: OK folks, the new forum software is up and running

As has been mentioned, the look of the forum is different. As time permits, we may customize the look a bit.

I have created a new thread to discuss the new platform: viewtopic.php?t=4960

The new platform should be stable and fully functional. Please report any issues in the new thread.

Thank you all for hanging in there with me as we made the rather bumpy trip over to the new platform.

The Cuthbert and Myers Coach Company

Post by willbilly »

Hello all,

I recently found this at an estate sale in Garland, TX. This is a brochure for an RV that I surmise was built on an Eagle International chassis. After finding the brochure quick googling found no pictures of a prototype. I did find a reference in the opencorporate database for a company established in Brownsville (2545 Price Road I believe) in 1973 with Harry L. Cuthbert as the registered agent in Greenville, TX. Some more searching led to a Brownsville newspaper article naming Mr. Cuthbert as the chief engineer of Eagle Bus International in 1975 at least.

I have the suspicion that this RV was meant to be on a Silver Eagle chassis, although it is a single rear axle design.

I, as of today, have not found any reference to Myers.

Attached is the pdf I scanned of the brochure.

First of all, welcome to our forum

I have a suspicion that this is not an Eagle related vehicle. However, the fact that the company was in Brownsville and Culbertson was associated with Eagle makes it very interesting.

It has a standard Ford engine and transmission, but the running gear seems much more robust than a standard Ford Truck chassis (at least up to 1 ton). Maybe the chassis was from a medium duty truck.

In any case a very interesting document.

Thanks

Jim

yes, i cant see anything about the coach that would connect it with a eagle, besides the unibody factor
