well that didn't work Frowner not good at posting pics.

Chassis is a 1973 Dodge M500 159" WB 440-3/727. There is NO nameplate or tags other than the chassis S/N stamped in the frame.. Square headlights and windows indicate newer than 1973. original owner died so no help there.

My first guess is probably not... Could you get a us a few other pictures of this coach? Interior and exterior.

There are a few similarities.

Here's a picture of a 1975 Barth Dodge Chassis with a Dodge Van front grill.

I don't think it is a Barth either. I have seen lots of pictures of Barths and remember them from the 70's. I have never seen one with 2 front doors or with dual headlights like this one. The chassis was built as a Canadian model. I have the Dodge build sheet. No one can ID it and lots of people have said Barth so I had to ask. The interior is completely empty. It has never been finished nor has it ever been registered. Who ever built it wasn't a rookie as it appears to be done by someone who has either done this before or at least knew what they were doing. My guess is it was built in Western Canada. Note that the rims are 5 stud. The tires are 8 19.5.

Years ago we had a 1972 Dodge Challenger MH, similar looking but no front door. Try to find a photo and upload into computer later today.
