Any 1970's Sports Coach owners?

My 1976 Sports Coach Class A mid-bath RV sat for 12 years.  It's a Dodge chassis, 440 engine, 61,000 actual miles.  Previous owner lost title years back.  I work at a salvage yard.  Young man in possession of RV, came to me, wanting me to purchase it for scrap as they had to get rid of it.  Parked in an alley within city limits with no current tag it had to be moved.  They tried to get it running.  Put 4 new drive tires and 2 new steer tires, belts, hoses, alternator, fuel pump, cap and…

Hi Jonathan! 

I am planning on purchasing a 1976 Sportscoach. It is the 29 foot model. I have only seen pictures at this time and have not set eyes on it. I do not know if it is Dodge or Chevy. The guy selling it is not the original owner and it is just in his storage. He believes it is a Dodge Chassis. It has been parked for 8 years and he said he drove it there and parked it and it has not been started since. He said he had a hard time stopping it and believes it may be something with the master brake cylinder. I am picking it up for $500. I am hoping to have some good luck like you and be able to drive it away. Any thoughts or advice would be helpful. Thanks. Larry
