I do not have glamour shots of the bus. In other words, I have not been able to tidy her up, put her in a beautiful location and put a vase of flowers in the living room to shoot pics. The pics are in-progress and in-use shots from the past few years.

We never intended to sell the Concord (luxury travel and the grape) as this bus was my husband’s dream. However, God had other plans for us. Due to health issues, we must let her go.

I’ve not listed a price (yet), as I’d prefer to talk with interested parties and come to a mutually beneficial agreement on price.

I can make arrangements for the bus to be viewed, in Florida.
