This Flxible is truly one of a kind! It is #102 of 220 built. There are apparently only 10 of these classic buses on the road today. Elvis Presley even owned one! The previous owner was a classic car enthusiast and pulled a car trailer behind it when he participated in classic car events. This bus attracted as much attention as the classic cars! The bus is a fully functioning motorhome (and is registered as a motorhome).

The coach is powered by a 350 HP Detroit Turbo Diesel 6V-92 with 45K on the engine (since new, not rebuilt) and transmission. It has a 4-speed Allison transmission and power steering. The batteries and tires are new (purchased/installed in October 2019). The back suspension is also new. This Flxible is a dream to drive and cruises comfortably at 70 mph, getting 12-15 mpg. New LED bulbs were installed on the entire exterior in November 2019. The bus has a 10 KW Yanmar diesel generator, roof and basement air. The bus has Dupont Imiron paint and retains the factory lines and trim that it had when it left the factory back in 1955.

The interior of the bus is a work of art. The bus has been redone in birdseye maple and black walnut by a master carpenter in Oklahoma. It took him 2 years to complete. There is absolutely not another bus like it. The pictures do not do it justice. It is truly beautiful. The bus sleeps 4 and currently has a king size bed in the rear with a brand new mattress. (Twin bed setup is underneath it if you would prefer that arrangement – shown in pictures) The bi-level interior also includes a full bathroom with a tiled shower, electric fridge, microwave, flat screen tv, 2 burner electric cooktop, and an under the counter toaster oven. There are 3 large skylights on the ceiling throughout the length of the bus for star gazing and 2 additional forward facing skylights in the kitchen area, allowing tons of light inside! LOTS of storage in the interior and there are also 4 large luggage/cargo storage compartments underneath the bus (one, housing the generator). Interior upholstery (including the matching captain’s chair) is in PERFECT condition! If you are looking for something unique and special, THIS IS IT! Additional note: this bus would also be ideal to have as an airbnb rental or as a full-time tiny house. Currently located just outside of Bend, OR.

Serious inquires only, please. Absolutely open to REASONABLE offers.

    This would be a dream come true for me! I once had a 1945 Flxible 29 passenger clipper and let it slip away from me.
    And this one has such a tasteful finish out. Thanks for showing it.
