Rough series dormobile on ebay

Since I have been outbid, I would rather see it go to someone on this board.

It is NOT a real bugeye.

It appears to be something in the 1962-1964 range. (says solihul not birmingham on the badges and has the 64 and down stove).

If you do buy it, I need some small parts off of it.

The indicators are different too...odd, but still cool.

????

Those look correct for early 1960s series trucks. They are glass lucas lights. Can't quite make out the back ones, but they might be correct too.

I should add that it appears to have an overdrive (at least the lever, unless that is a PTO winch on the front I have never seen--winch appears to be hand cranked) and that it has a kodiak mark IV heater.

Different than a true Bugeye, with the vertical arrangement and 4" turn signal lamps.

Yes, you are correct, I thought you meant not correct for a 62-64.

Pic of real bugeye on ECR's website.

Yeah, I don't think you guys can tackle that one. Looks way too complicated. Unsure if even ECR could make it happen.

You should buy it. It looks to be all there except for the wardrobe. You could also get it registered as Maine has the no title for old cars deal and you are a dealer.

As long as the dormobile stuff lives on ....

BTW there is a Stage 1 V8 on ebay uk with a galy frame for cheap. I thought a stage 1 dormobile with a 4.6 14CUX V8 would be about perfect.
