Since it's just 45 minutes from me, and after seeing a couple of 360 pushers at Penn Wood, I figured I'd go have a look/see. If anyone has the hots for this one, feel free to PM me, or give me a call.

NOTE: It is not a project for the faint of heart!

Main points to consider on that Pusher-

Exterior, if the clearcoat is in bad shape, you will need to strip and refinish, probably the decals at the same time...most that were not parked indoors will need this by now including mine. Panel dents are not too hard to fix or replace. I had to replace three panels on the rear, they are still available. The front hatch and panels that wrap around the front are not available, and this example has a problem there. Patch and paint, or fill in and create a new seam, duplicate on the other side so it looks ok.

Interior, amazing what a new floor will do, carpet or hardwood. I have needed to do this on the majority that I have owned. Replace window treatments, and you are already starting to feel nice. Hit the cabinets with some poly/stain to bring them back to life. Check the headliner...this will be a major pain for me, may just pay to get it redone but expensive! Will the furniture need to be redone?

Mechanical, there things are simple and should run forever with proper maintenance, and CAC radiator clean out.
Do they have the Alcoa for the rear...are they just using the spare? Impossible, or close to replace these. This already has a Banks system on it, so somebody cared about the motor and performance. The Cummins 5.9 is arguably the best diesel ever made. The Alison trans is fantastic!
Leaks in the front windows can damage the floor, so check under carpets.

Otherwise, these things are really sweet to own and drive!

Argosy in Montana. Has rear panoramic windows, so it must be a rear bedroom:

Drove past a 345LE for sale yesterday. It's appears to be in decent condition and drivable. It between Cadillac and Manistee Michigan on Hwy 55 just east of M37. If anyone is really interested I could get further information.

Barth for sale in Austin, Texas

Spotted this ex Texas County Sheriff's Barth. Exterior is really excellent (includes 4 floodlights as this was originally a forensic lab!). GM heavy duty chassis with 60,000 mile 454 TBI. Current owner is a bike enthusiast and has done the interior as a Harley Davidson "party bus". Rig was locked but owner has pics he can send. Maybe an interesting buy for a AS sunstitiute all-metal short (23 ft I think) If interested contact Buddy on (512) 797-8183.
Sorry pics are upside down..blame Google photos!

Can you imagine how the dash wiring looks like after being exposed to the elements for who knows how long.
I did consider an offer, but with generator door missing I would be a fool to take it, since Martin already sent the only spare in the US to Ben in Austin.

The 86 345 that I dismantled had no windshields for years and the under dash stuff was no worse off than I found under my 310 dash. Dustier but the dash top keep the bulk of the elements out of the dash and wiring.

I wonder if that 310 diesel that is/was being parted out in Utah has the generator door still available?

The opening on the side sure looks like the same opening that was on my 84 310. I thought the one in Utah was a 310 as well.
