....and an original will always be worth more than a "restored" vehicle in comparable condition.

This coach was owned by PCS members in Indiana. They purchased it from a private party in Wheeler, Indiana in 1985. It was last seen at one of our Indiana chapter events about 15 years ago. This was a very nice car, I'm not surprised it sold so quickly. It was offered to several members of the PCS before being posted on ebay.

Too bad it was never made known to all of the PCS membership. It might have stayed within the PCS family. I am sure that it would have sold quickly within the PCS as well, if others had known that it was for sale.
