    Seen this multiple times on my travels. Finally had a few extra minutes to stop and take a picture.

    Would be an interesting project for someone to finish.

    Fantastic looking camper. Do you think it would cost a small fortune to fix it up?

    You know how to make a small fortune off of this Buick camper? Sink a LARGE fortune into restoring it!

    It has been sitting there for at least a year, if not longer.

    They have several other vehicles sitting around, just not up by the road. Looks like a Studebaker pickup in the background of one of the pictures, thought about taking a closer look at that but figured I had better not unless the owner came out and I could ask him.

    It’s been for sale and posted in various groups on FB by people that have seen it or saw it advertised. If someone had deep pockets it would be cool done

    I actually have a friend that does that type of thing, he builds custom cars, antique travel trailers(vintage onto modern frame etc), vintage airstream into a car trailer - here is a picture of the Lincoln station wagon he has that is a full custom build - this Buick is exactly the type of stuff he does.

    I would think all that really nice front end chrome and sheet metal would be worth what they are asking to the person that needs that stuff.

    The Lincoln is a stunner. Hearse based? On the camper subject, this Packard was at Goldmine, NV.

    Drove by the place yesterday where this Buick camper was parked. It was gone. Wonder if it was sold or the guy got tired of it sitting there and scrapped it out?
