Gerstenslager Conversion: 1954 Chevrolet Camper 4BT Cummins Power

 Did somebody say Goldschläger?   No, no, we aren’t talking about that terrible cinnamon schnapps/floor cleaner that comes with real gold flakes floating in the bottom…no.  We are talking about Gerstenslager, the Wooster, OH based custom coachworks company that started sometime in the mid 19th century, got big with bookmobiles in the ’50s and still stamps vehicle body parts today.  Find this 1954 Chevrolet Camper with Gerstenslager conversion and 4BT Cummins power offered for $6,500 in Brighton, CO via craigslist. Tip from Zach Z.

 If you are going to drive some huge RV, it makes sense to buy unique like this thing.  The diesel power is a big plus, fuel economy will be decent, just don’t try and cheap the EPA test.  This thing is large, it sleeps 6 people, has a complete bathroom, but needs some sorting before you hit the open highway.  Read more about the Gerstenslager conversion here on
