That looks like the 29' gaso pusher. They had a Chrysler 440 in most cases.

Yes... FMC tried to make a comeback as MCC but fell a little $hort. Barth stepped in and built the "MCC by Barth". It was the same thing as what the MCC would have been but they tacked on the "... by Barth" because of the new owners.

After making the "MCC by Barth" for a few years, Barth took this frame and placed it under an Aluminum Bodied Coach and called it a Barth Regency until they stopped producing the frame in 1985.

The limitations of that frame was 35', hydraulic brakes & a 22k chassis rating.

Here is a post that is worth reading - actually, anything by Leslie Hoagland is worth reading when it comes to the MCC's

The FMC motor coachs were built in 1972 till 1976 when the FMC company went into military production and closed their RV operations.
The MCC RV was created by several of the exFMC guys who still were interested in the RV and used a FMC transit/bus as the basis for their new MCC!


The 82 MCC {by Barth}
is not an rv--
it is a Motor Coach!!
