Attention Merle Haggard superfans: The Hag’s custom-designed Super Chief tour bus is up for auction. San Antonio Auto Auctions currently has the starting bid at $150,000, with a buy-now price of $225,000.
To keep the price in perspective, these type of tour buses usually go for upwards of $300,000 and none have as cool of a backstory as this one.
Despite being 12 years old, the Super Chief looks to be in excellent condition. Let’s take a look at what this rare piece of country music memorabilia has inside.
Haggard chose the name “Super Chief” himself, and had the name embroidered on almost every inch of the bus.
Inside, you’ll find everything you need for a home away from home, including a full kitchenette and cozy lounge area with satellite television and surround sound.
The bus comes with a master bedroom in the back, once reserved for the country legend himself. There are also four bunks, in case you want to take a band, your family or buddies on the road.
Our favorite feature is a train horn, taken from the historical Santa Fe Railway. The handle for the horn is right next to the front seat, where the Hag would spend hours riding from show to show.
Don’t pass up this opportunity to own a rare piece of country music history.
