Default Can You Get Inspired by This Mystery Luxury Coach? Do You Recognize it?

OK folks, we need your participation on this one. This coach has an interesting history and I really like to know why it's not being recognized in a very famous coaches history timeline. I can say it was left out and I'm not sure why. I believe it deserves recognition as its relevant to this site and our common interests.

I'm going to make this one a challenge for everyone. Do you recognize it? Do you know how it relates to many of us? There some mysteries about her..........

We will start with the dash and see how it goes:

It looks to me like late 60s, they used ford 391gas engines in the Newells, looks like it could be one of the first ones?

This the original dash. I will release additional pictures of this coach. We are planning to do a special feature on this coach in the near future. So far you guys are doing great, keep the thoughts coming.

Some great guesses or answers here. Some of you folks have done some homework. Not going to say whether or not anyone is hot or cold just yet. I will reveal another picture soon. This will probably be one of the biggest luxury coach history lessons for most.

It's a clean dash. I will be waiting to see more of it before I take a guess.
