The l\dotor Coach for 1y75. The FMC. Not a conversion from something else. Nor an adaptation to anything else. Rather, designed from the road up. to be ex?.ctly ry!a! it is: a unique melding of driveability and liveability characteristics. Elegantly appointed, with a multitude of refinements gracing the interior. Plush carpeting, tasteful wall coverings, rich woodgrain cabinetry, harmonious window shadesall a careful coordination of color and style. And everywhere you look, tinted safety glass windows, to bring the sights outside in. At the very rear, the spacious master salon. Then a lavishly-outfitted bath. A complete galley, with double sink, counter-level stove, eyelevel oven, refrig erator / freezer, and acres of counter space. A comfortable dining and enter-

taining center. Air conditioning, stereo, and color TV hook-ups. All in all, the FMC is all splendid living for six. Up front is the driver's world. Designed so the end of a long trip finds you still looking forward to the pleasures ahead. A comfort-swivel seat, two-way adjustable steering wheel and column, power assisted steering and brakes, and a full range of instrumentation, including a unique systems status read-out console. Plus a driver's door, for convenience and safety. At mid-vehicle, there's a passenger's door, too only a single electric step down to the ground. Step back and take a look at the FMC. It looks like no other motor home. Long, low, and a wide stance. Gleaming white fiberglass. Sleek, flowing lines, unmarred by unsightly (and air-resisting) roof-mounted appliances. Beneath it all is a customengineered chassis -fully

integrating the body. Steel beam and roll-resistant cage construction. Sandwiched with polyurethane foam for a quietness inside that lets you speak in whispers. All four wheels are suspended separately, sweeping you over road irregularities in comfort akin to a luxury car. And at the rear, a powerful engine, mounted at the driving wheels. Greater traction and efficiency. No noise, heat, vibration, or engine hump in the driver's area. And completely serviceable from outside the coach. The FMC Motor Coach for L975. Seeing it, driving it is the strongest argument for owning it. Arrange for an appointment to see for yourself. Today.

because this beauty is built around


revolutionary chassis developed for this coach alone. The chassis rides low to the ground for

a whole new measure of stability. The coach floor is only 18Vz inches off the

road. And its center of g ravity is 1g inches lower than comparable truck

chassis coaches.

Four-wheel independent suspension (like the suspension in Europe's finest luxury sedans) is teamed with rear torsion bars for an entirely new kind of

motor coach ride. The wide track front wheels are placed 81 inches apart, to practically eliminate body sway.

The engine of this 29-foot beauty is in

the rear. So you get extra traction


uphill grades and extra quiet on any run. The FMC 2900R delivers a ride, handling, quiet and convenience you won't

believe- until you see the coach and

The FMC. Standing apart in a world of motor home lookalikes, built-the-sarnes. A totally-engineered approach to elegant on-and-off road travel and liveability. A unifying of performance and luxury. All of the first order. One glance is all that's needed to tell you how different the FMC is. Long, and low, standing wide. The sleek, smooth, moving lines of its all-fiberglass body are unbroken by unsightly (and

air-resisting) roof-mounted appliances. And tinted safety glass all around, everywhere you look, to bring the sights outside in. A driver's door, for convenience and safety. And a mid-vehicle passenger's door, too.

At the rear, a powerful engine, mounted behind the driving wheels. Greater traction, more efficient operation. No noise, heat, vibration, or engine hump in the driver's area. And completely serviceable from outside the coach. Unseen is the custombuilt, fully-integrated body and chassis unit. A sheath of steel beam lower framing and aluminum upper cage construction. Packed with sound absorbing, insulating polyurethane foam. Likewise hidden from view, the independent suspension at all four wheels, for a smoother ride. Power brakes, for a safer ride. And power steering, for an easier ride. A single step up and you're inside the FMC. Luxury Speaks back softly from every inch. Plush carpeting underfoot. Walls in easy-care, vinyl clad aluminum. Cabinetry in rich woodgrain. Elegant seating fabrics and coordinatjng woven window shades. A

quiet to begin with, and a heavily

insulated engine compartment keeps ings cool. There's no engine hump separating


the front seats, either" The front deck is f lat and unobstructed, So you and your crew can get into and out of your seats without a struggle. And there's f ull legroom seating for the driver and two f ront-seat passengers. Inside this 29-foot beauty are conveniences like a central hallway that turns into a private dressing room, a

built-in pantry, and convertible rear beds. And there are targe capacity

conditioning systems to cool you on the road or while you're parked.
