Question Vintage Spartan EuroPremier MoHo?

I realize this is not an SOB Forum, but my brother just passed a very old MoHo labeled "Spartan EuroPremier". Anyone ever heard of or seen one of these, or know anything about them? I've searched the Web, and can't find reference to anything by that name that's older than the 1990s. This rig was MUCH older. Any help, links, or info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Never heard of it, but I'd sure be curious to see a picture. Was it in pretty sad shape?

According to my brother, who owned my 370 before I got it from him , it was not in sad shape, but definitely looked like an old MoHo. He saw it today in Richmond, VA, but wasn't able to get a picture or talk to anyone at the time. He said it looked very much like the older Champion MoHos, that used to be quite popular in the 1960s and early 1970s.

I googled it and saw pics of mid-90 models and they looked like they are nice shoe boxes. Cummings diesels and onan diesel generators, etc. But I'd never heard of one or seen one before this thread.

I got the same, but the one in question appeared to be about 40 years old...very strange. Oh well, at least we know there was such a thing in the 90s . I'm still hoping someone will come up with some info on this .

Maybe someone put stickers from a EuroPremiere on it? I have seen that more than once. Best one being the Yugo (remember those? ) with a full set of Porsche badges

You know, I thought of that. Especially the "EuroPremier" label. I'm not even sure that would have been good marketing in the 1960s. Almost a reverse of the Yugo deal . The fact that there obviously were such vehicles in the 90s makes this look very strange indeed.

Sorry, dead end . The description I'm getting is a rather boxy large (maybe about 34 feet) vehicle with flat windshield in front, rounded corners, but otherwise rectangular - typical of older MoHos during the 60s. Thanks again for the picture.

Ah-Ha, it's a GMC in disguise ! At least it was all aluminum and had rivets .

Smile Rivet Master

Speaking of rivets, I just noticed I've graduated to a Rivet Master . Boy, that's not a good sign if people equate that with advanced knowledge. All I've done, mostly, is ask LOTS of questions . On a very few occasions I've actually known something that help someone else, but it's mostly been on the receiving end. Thanks to all who have helped .

Best,

Tim,
Congrats on Rivet Master (doesn't matter how ya got it as long as it was legal )

That thing must be a real beast. Rob was trying to convince me I should buy it, he found the thing in coastal Carolina. IIRC it is something like a 52 Spartan Manor that someone converted to a MoHo. I think it was a 75 drive train. Real interesting, but I need another project like I need a live hand grenade with the pin pulled. My current project list (not including the honey do list) includes 2 Airstreams (full monte's), a 1976 Pace Arrow MoHo (FIL's), a half built hovercraft, a Teardrop, a 1963 Dodge Sweptline D100, 1952 Chevy 1.5t, 1951 Farmall Super A, several bicycles and a couple of scooters. all of which require major work. I never get simple projects...

Aaron
