I bought it about 75 miles from me. Drove it home. Ran very smooth. Handled well. I just didn't want it to turn into a chicken coop in Iowa. The new items inside had more value then what I paid for it. When completed It will be able, and safe to drive anywhere. So what's a fair price for me, and any buyer.


Late 1973 Canyonland GMC for sale.

Nice shinny older paint job. New in the box but not installed ( yet ) Dome tic frig, 4 burner Magic Chief cook top, Suburban furnace, rear outside ladder, all cushions new still in bags, plus passenger side buddy seat, Carrier roof AC unit ( now installed ).

104,000 miles on 455 that has good oil pressure, and compression.

Just installed new engine water pump, antifreeze, hoses, belts, fuel filter, carburetor kit, and plugs/points.

16' Dunlop tire with about 3,000 miles on them.

2 year old American Eagle rims

Undercarriage/frame all just power washed, and inspected

I'm listing this GMC now. As I'm going to redo the interior, and undercarriage work as listed below. I've rebuilt a few of these. Thus can send photos of past work. You can go on the GMC net, or Face book as to references. Been in GMCMI since 2003. Looking to have this completed by July first at the latest. This interior work is going to cost the same if I do it to our taste, or for the buyer. Thus the buyer can get it custom to their taste.

Interior. New cloth headliner for sound reduction with recessed LED lights controlled by wall switches. All ceiling, and wall panels replaced plus counter tops.


Mechanicals, and undercarriage upgrades.

Rear suspension replaced with a reconditioned 78 GMC unit that has disc brakes on that units front axles.

Steel brake lines, and rubber fuel lines replaced. Gas tanks pulled, and flushed with new inlet rubber hoses. Front wheel bearings serviced. Transmission installed that has about 20,000 miles on it. May install EFI.

The dilemma.


The PO started to redo the interior. So the items that he pulled out. Just need to be put back in their original places. Then install the new components listed can be installed. Tires, rims, and roof A/C are in place. I can replace rubber fuel lines. Flush the tanks. Then for $8,000. Someone can take it home as is. Or for $18 to $25,000. Someone can take a rebuilt GMC home. Should I have bought it. NO. But I saw a nice GMC on it's way to becoming that chicken coop in Iowa. I'm going to sell it in one of those two ways. Either way it will be a bargain for someone. Go see what $18 to $25,000 will get you in an SOB. Bob Dunahugh

8K is a steal. Given that someone who knows what they are doing already looked it over, installed some new parts, and cleaned it up some. Throw in all the new high dollar items that have little to no wear and tear or use on them yet, and your WAY ahead of the game.

If this was posted when I was in the market for a coach 2 years ago I would have already sent you a deposit and been half way to Iowa. Winter Storms or not.

Put it back together, give it a good safety check and it's easily a 10k coach.
