Nice. There doesn’t look like any excitement about your new adventure. Thumbs Up confusion

Careful with those windshields!

WOW it is almost 50 years old. Looks wonderful. What is that in dog years? 336?. You have a gem.
Being a FORD Lover it has a special place in my mind!

Two things I notice is that I think it has new stile windshields (a good thing) and 16" wheels instead of 16.5 " like gm's of those years. Better tire selection. Looks like you got a good looking coach. Enjoy using it.

Nice coach! Just proves when you wait long enough another Barth variation will arise.

You are fortunate the coach is just new enough to have the later style windshields, DW730 and DW731. They are still available. Up until late 72 Barth used the smaller windshields which are very rare.

Enjoy your coach. Weather already into fall mode here!

Have Barth, will travel Tooling Along

Before I found mine that was exactly what I had in my head when I started looking and once I understood how rare they were, I snatched mine up when I found it. Awesome looking coach !!

Well now Doorman and SteveVW have commented on the windshields. If you are correct that is great. My comment was protect those windshields because they sure look to be the same as mine were in the 72. I looked at the pictures of my 72 and they look to be the same distance from the top and the grill. Same size as the side windows.

I don’t have the readily available DW730 and 731 so I can’t measure. Also the wrap around is to far to be the newer style.

I’ve been wrong before and will be again. Just wondering how you guys are eyeballing and getting a different perception than I am?

Robb just trying to make sure you understand the rarity of those windshields. 1/2 of mine went to St Cloud to someone who purchased a 72. I also gave all the paperwork from my 72.

More pics would be great. The outside looks incredible. How’s the inside.

My 72 is my deer camp and only movable as a toad. No motor, no transmission, no windshields. Direct vent heater.

Dana I completely understand how rare the windscreens are. The inside definitely needs TLC but is a good canvas for us to make our own. The previous owner completely changed the front dash.
