That big ol' thing is a FIND! Looks like the years in storage didn't do it any harm. The paint looks solid and the chrome still sparkles. It's gonna be the most looked-at rig at any campground you take it to.

(As for the bulbous rear end, wasn't there a song about that a few years ago: "I like big butts and I can't lie..." cool image )

1948 Flxible Clipper Thirty foot motorhome (Kosher Polka Dill Pickle)

Last updated Nov 5, 2009  

Photo of a 1948 Flxible Clipper Thirty foot motorhome (Kosher Polka Dill Pickle)


Remarkable aquisition of an iconic classic Art Deco bus from the American heritage of 1948! This bus was originally purchased as a motorhome for a Polka Band and was never in passenger service. Catch that bulbous rear end!!!!


Originally powered by a Buick Straight Eight with a three speed manual transmission, later changed to a Chrysler Hemi in the 1960's, then a Cadillac V8 in the early 1970's, and most recently (in 1978) to a Chevrolet 350 with a powerglide automatic tranmission.


I just got it fired up after a twenty year slumber, and I just drove it home to my shop, a maiden voyage of only 28 miles, but it was an adventure, and theKosher Polka Dill Pickle performed beautifully. Can't wait to get going on this project!
