The Cuthbert and Myers Coach Company

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
