Found On Craigslist: Willie Nelson's Tour Bus
This is one ride we can honestly classify as “smokin.” So, you’re a music fan, you have some cash lying around and want a piece of motoring history? How about Willie Nelson’s tour bus? Your chariot for driving to Bonnaroo awaits! The seller is in Texas, and has put this 1983 Eagle custom tour bus on Craigslist. The bus has a custom paint job, a crushed velvet interior, and it all screams “Willie.” It is in pretty good shape, too. The interior is perfect, and the exterior has some minor blemishes.

According to the Village Voice, the man who posted the listing, Alan, is doing so on behalf of a friend who is older and less tech-savvy. It was one of two identical busses made for Nelson. The bus passed through several owners before ending up with the current one who is selling it. He had business in and around Texas, and actually used the tour bus to make those business trips.

Since the posting went up, they have been flooded with calls. Some are serious inquiries, and others are reporters and simply curious parties. With all that interest, you'd think they could charge whatever they wanted. But the price has only risen seven grand, up to $36,000 from the original price of $29,999. For that, we think Willie would be proud of these honest folks.
