Did this 1952 Flexible DayCoach Give Inspiration to the Early Newell Coach or Others?
Take a look at this Flexible DayCoach that was converted to a Land Yacht by Custom Coach Co. back in 1961. Do you see some similarities to the early Newell Coaches and some bus conversions? I sure do.
This coach has had some more current updates such as wiring, repainted original 534 V-8 engine, Flat TV's, front & rear AC systems, new fabrics on the Zip Dee Awnings, new wall to wall carpeting, 10k Kohler genny, 50 amp shore power, 22.5 Alcoa wheels, new tires, tinted & screened windows, and automatic transmission.
Some other notable features on this beautiful antique luxury coach are all the polished stainless side panels, chromed bumpers, Dupont Emron paint, extensive storage capability, with 2 full wardrobes, 11 large drawers, and double size slide-outs under each sofa. The walk in rear compartment is a combination of diamond plate and carpet, and is large enough to carry a motorcycle! There is a observation deck with access via the interior and exterior. Cool right?
This baby will effortlessly cruise at 65 mph. I really like it and can appreciate all the effort put into this beauty! It boast many modern day features found on today's luxury coaches.

The red and chrome pop. I'd like to see a classic Newell coach with a paint job like this one. It's very similar on the inside to a classic Newell. I would like to see more pictures if you have them. I really like this inspirations section of the forum I think it will help those who are looking to restore a Newell classic!
Very nice! kinda reminds me of the coach on the movie RV with Robin Williams. I asked my wife what our "family song" will be!
