For Sale: 1973 GMC Glacier - Rust-free, some updating already completed
This ’73 GMC Glacier Motorhome spent almost its entire life in New Mexico, where I bought it in April 2011, so it has very little rust. I was intending to restore it completely, but find that, due to financial considerations, I must sell. That said, I have done a lot of work on it already and have all receipts for that work.
First things first, the GMC starts right up and runs well. Of course its easy and fun to drive. The rebuilt Olds 455 cu. in. engine has 5,000 miles on it so it’s broken in but not worn out. The carburetor has also been rebuilt and aftermarket temp gauge, etc. installed (see the photo of the dash.
Brand new on the outside: Struts, tie rods, ball joints, etc. New shocks and brakes. One new airbag and a leveling system that works. It has six new tires with only 2,000 miles on them. They are mounted on original wheels. Speaking of original, it also has four original hubcaps.
Brand new on the inside: Norcold refrigerator/freezer, furnace, and electrical converter.
The seats have been recovered while most of the rest of the interior is in original but good condition. There’s a 4-burner Coleman stove and oven with vent. It has the typical storage space of a 26-foot GMC and the side bathroom with toilet and shower. There’s one roof-top, low profile AC unit, a ladder but no storage pod on the roof. Of course, it has the Onan 600-watt generator.
Comes with original manual and schematics though it’s in need of a little more TLC, but would be easy to finish the restoration to its original glory. The paint, since it’s the good stuff GMC used, should look nice is properly buffed though the new owner might want a fresher paint job – it’ll be your decision.
If you are interested, contact me and I'll be happy to send more pictures and we can go from there. If you’d like a simple yet printable brochure click here.

For Sale: 1978 GMC Royale (rear bath) ready for restoration - This is a 1978 GMC Royale that I purchased to refurbish. I haven't worked on it in the last couple of years (many other projects have taken priority). I have been paying for storage on the unit for several years and am now ready to sell it to someone who wants to complete the project.
The coach is located in the San Diego area but is registered in North Dakota. (Unable to pass smog test in California due to non-original engine.)
You may follow the link to a PowerPoint presentation that includes much more information about the coach as well as high-resolution photos.
When I bought it over 12 years ago I paid about $9,000 for a coach that needed a lot of work (that was in the good old days when $5,000 for a parts coach was considered a bargain). I probably have over $15,000 invested but know things are not worth what they were a few years ago. I am asking somewhere around $3,000 but am open to all reasonable offers.
Since purchasing it I rebuilt and recovered the dash, installed the new gauge panel (which still needs some modification), installed new shocks, tires, front and rear sway bars, new generator and electrical panels. I did a lot of interior work and more needs to be done. As you can see, the exterior needs paint.
Hoses, belts and brake lines have not been replaced. Fuel lines and in-tank strainers (socks) were replaced but that was almost 12 years ago. I have probably put less than 200 miles on it since I have owned it and have no idea how it handles on the freeway.
Overall I believe $3,000 is a fantastic price for what you get. But, before driving it a long distance I would have it checked out by someone who is very knowledgeable. Miguel from MGM is probably the closest GMC mechanic (about 100 miles).
If interested send me an email and I will respond as necessary.
