For those willing to pay more than $325,000 USD, this unique 1963 Gillig Model 590H bus turned enclosed hauler in Porsche livery could be yours. It started out in dire condition before the vehicle was purchased from the current owner from California, and then was promptly reskinned in aluminum during the restoration.
It is now finished finished in red and gray, complete with Porsche crests both on the the sides as well as rear. The right side and rear doors had to be rebuilt, while side and rear-view cameras accompany the mirrors. Other exterior features include custom windows, right-side LED lamps, overhead beehive taillights, a receiver hitch, custom Budd aluminum wheels wrapped in Michelin XZE2 11R22.5 radial tires, and underbody storage compartments. Power comes from a 7.0-liter Detroit Diesel 6-71 turbodiesel inline-six engine that was most recently refurbished in 2015, mated to an Allison automatic transmission. More information here.
