A piece of country music history is currently up for auction on eBay. Loretta Lynn’s old 1977 tour bus could be yours, if the price is right.
Officially called an Eagle Coach, this bus has quite the history. Lynn’s guitarist Perley Curtis owned the bus previously. And then before that, the classic rock band Badfinger used the tour bus.
According to the listing, country music hall of famer Faron Young owned the bus at one point. But Vassar Clements first purchased the bus.
Oh, and Sugarland used it in their first ever music video for “Baby Girl” (thought the listing notes the interior since received an upgrade). So now you’re thinking, “Cool, is it a dump?”
Not at all.
The listing notes that the coach is well-maintained and comfortably sleeps 8 people (with six bunks and a private bedroom). It also has a bathroom, two flatscreen TVs, a microwave, a fridge, some DVD players and a few other creature comforts. Plus new tires, new batteries and all the other important parts you need to check for when buying a used vehicle.
The all-important mileage question? That’s not quite as clear. A previous owner rebuilt the engine, so there’s no accurate detail of the total number of miles driven. Though let’s be real. It’s a tour bus. But the seller does have a lot of paperwork with logs of all the different maintenance performed on the bus.
So far, nobody bid on the bus. The started price is $25,000 and it’s live for a little over four more days. You’d think the bus is in Nashville, but it’s actually in High Point, N.C. The seller doesn’t have any previous eBay history, so you know they decided to join specifically to list this bus. But you can bid with confidence since eBay has lots of ways to insure purchases.
