Willie Nelson’s 1983 Eagle tour bus has made it’s way to the list - Craigslist that is.
Alan, the man selling the bus says that if someone wishes to buy it, they better act fast! "It's been non-stop," Alan told the Village Voice. "I've gotten calls from as far as Washington state and New York."
Alan, according to Village Voice, heard that the tour bus was being sold in Alabama three or four years ago and bought it. Since then Alan has been riding around in the tour bus, but has recently decided to give up the hobby.
The inside is in perfect condition has crushed red velvet curtains and wood paneling. The bus also has a banner on the front stating: “WE LOVE WILLIE” and a flying eagle painted on the back.
This bus was never occupied by Nelson himself. His bus was the Honeysuckle Rose, but hardcore Willie fans are jumping at the chance to buy this piece of memorabilia.
The Scout, the name of the bus, is one of two identical tour buses specially made for Nelson and based on the number of calls that they have gotten, they probably priced the bus a bit too low. ($29,999)
According to The Daily Mail, since being posted on Craigslist Sunday night the sale has pushed from the original $29,999 to $65,000.
