Then & Now: An RV Bus Conversion Finds Her Past Life

August 9, 2012 by JJ in Buses with 0 Comments


Then… The unit ‘living’ as a Citizen Auto Stage, passenger bus, in Nogales, Arizona.

When Chris and Cherie bought their vintage 1961 4106 GM bus conversion they knew she had a past life, but to witness it, to actually see her in historical pictures was just a glimmer of hope. That is until this black and white photograph of the 4106 GM turned up. Unveiling her past window styling, paint job and signage.

Now… The Zephyr, 51 years later.


Still hard at work, the Zephyr is living life to the fullest as she tours the United States. She has been converted and ‘geeked out’ into a working home on wheels. With an added bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and a tech-packed office on board.

Watch the Zephyr’s past and future unfold at Read their exciting discovery on the post; “Our Freaky Deeky Time Machine.”
