Matt, thanks for updating details about this Eagle.

I have changed the subject to reflect that you have obtained the bus. 

Keep us posted on your updates.  I will probably move this thread to the project forum in the near future.

If you decide to offer this for sale in the future, we will be glad to list it for sale on both the forum and our website.  Our website "for sale" gets a rather large number of hits.

Thank you Eagle Obsessed. Yes I was happy to rescue it. We had to deal with helping the former owner get it clear and out of a sticky storage situation but, with the help of Virgil Cooley in assessing it, I felt the effort was well worth the hassle.  I could not have done this without him. 

As mentioned, I bought it sight unseen.  After a couple of weeks of crawling all over the unit and a successful shake down run, It really impressed me as to the quality of build, overall condition, and the care the original owner took to document everything. It became obvious the potential for this to quickly find its former glory with a little more TLC. 

I am likely going to reach out to Jim this week about listing it for sale now since I am not sure when I can get back to it this winter.  If someone comes along that would be a good fit for this, I would be happy to see go to a loving home. I enjoy the process.

Hello All,
If you are looking for a great unit to use right away and make your own, please reach out. Although, I mentioned it in a post last October, I am going to make this bus available to the market before I plan to be back in California to pick it up. Happy to speak to members here and friends referred by them. I have not advertised this anywhere yet.
Best!
