#MC WEASKEDRVOWNERS WHAT THE ULTIMATE MOTOR COACH SHOULD BE

You've never seen a motor coach like the FMC 2900R. It's long, low and beautifully built on a custom chassis designed for this coach alone. The handling is unlike any motor coach you've ever driven-unusually smooth, stable and quiet. Four wheel independent suspension (just like Some of Europe's finest cars) and huge power assisted brakes surround the driver with confidence. Luxury living is more than a promise-with conveniences that Iet you take life easy on or off the road. Give the 2900R a thorough examjnation at your FMC dealer soon. Then take a test drive and experience the difference engineering makes.

FMCT9OOR ThelvlotorCoach


This is the Motor Coach that was just that from the very beginning. Not a conversion or an adaptation, but rather, fully-engineered from the ground tp. Step back and take it all in. A

gleaming deep gold and white - colors that are molded right into the strong, weatherproof fiberglass shell for lasting beauty. Black and chrome, prudently used, accent its finest lines.

custom chassis, integrating bodl' and frame into a single unit. You're sheathed in a steel beam lower frame and surrounded bv an aluminum upper cage. Long (29'8" ). Lor,v ( 8'4" ). And a wide track stance (83"). (Wait'll vou feel how it handles in corners, and takes wind buffetitg.) Sleek, smooth lines that sive the FM C 2900R reduced air resirtut,ce at highway cruising speeds for improved performance, handling, and fuel economv. (Note the absence of unsightly, 4tug-producing roof-mounted appliances.

)

Also unseen are the largest powet brakes avarlable, for a safer ride. And the automatic transmission and powel steering, for an easier ride.

Front and rear, the vehicle's protected by shock-absorbing bumpers. There's a driver's door, for safety and convenience. And a mid-vehicle passenger's door, too. And at the ve-

hicle's rear is where vou'll find the engine. A heavy-dutv 440 cu. in. Chrysler Industrial V-8" Greater traction, because the engine's in the rear where it should be. More efficient, because there's no long drivetrain. More enjoyable for the driver, because all the engine noise, heat, and vibration is far bef,ind him, instead of right beside him. And easier to service-the engine is completely accessible from the outside. All the FM C 29A0R's major living systems are readily accessible lrom outside the vehicle, too, Ald all compartments are safetv locked.

Unseen is the Coach's custom independent suspension at all four wheels, for a smoother ride. Springsupported tt A" arms up front, and torsion bars (like you find on luxury cars) in the rear.

luxurious approach taken to living. Deep shag carpeting underfoot. Eas3z-care vinvl clad aluminum interio ;;1i-. Rich *boa gtuitt cabinetry with safety-padded corners.

the driver's door. Convenient. And the adjustable steering column More convenience. Cast a glance over the padded, shrouded dash featuring a full arrav of instruments speed, tach, fuel, oil, water, lights, signals, and generator, brake, and engine warning lights. Within an arm's reach are ashtravs, cigarette lighters , AM/ FNI Stereo radio, tape deck, map light, and electric clock. There's also a unique optical display system that , at the flip of a switch, gives you a digital status on the vehicle's functions and systems. Across the way is the two-passenger companion seat. And notice what's not in the way -a motor hump.

hood quickly eliminates odors and steam. A generous formica rolled edge counter gives you ample working room. And a stainless steel double sink makes cleaning up easy. Lots of storage space cupboards, spice shelf. All -drawers, with secure yacht-type closures.

Across the way is the roomy four-

person dining area, that's also a relaxing area/riding area by day, and quickly converts to a cloud-comfortable 43 x 7 6" bed at night. Take a look around. From the dinette vantage point you can see forever (at least 180o of the world around you). Back past the passenger's side door. A spacious closet and pantry to the left. And a lavishly-appointed bath to the right. The extra l책ige molded fiberglass tublshower is equipped with a fully adjustable and removable shower head. A color-coordinated curtain separates the bath from the toilet, sink, and vanity area. Towel racks, soap dish, toothbrush and drinking glass holder

And finally, the rear salon. Room for living. Plush couches on both sides of the vehicle, with a foldaway lounge table in between. Room lights, reading lights, and a TV hookup. By night, you have your choice of two 9i_ngle beds, or a queen size bed. And folding doors (two of them) at the vehicle's center divide the front and back of the vehicle into private staterooms ( as well as creatin g a private dressing area).
