Tiny Homeless: 1966 Clark Cortez Motorhome

The Clark Cortez motorhomes built back in the 60s are pretty cool vehicles that get overlooked in many of the typical classic van/RV discussions.  But, they are a nice size that still fits in a lot of parking spaces and offers a whole lot more interior volume than a fullsize van (except maybe for a big high-roof Sprinter or Transit, but those are still expensive). Today we've got a pair from tipper Zach Z.  Find this 1966 Clark Cortez offered for $5,500 in Anchorage, AK via craigslist.

From the seller:
Needs work on roof(started) and new carpet, cleaned up and it's ready to go, lot's of potential. Slant 6 Dodge truck engine with front wheel drive and power steering, runs great and have the original manuals. Great project for a very rare rv or a good start on a very rare food truck. Factory roof top carrier and ladder (not in photos).

The second example is this 1969 Clark Cortez offered for $4,500 in Anchorage, AK via craigslist. From the seller:
Hard to find, deluxe interior, full kitchen, bath w/ shower, window covers, bed extension, sleeps 4, one piece 16" wheels w/ good rubber, 302 Ford V-8, 4 spd. transmission, front wheel drive w/ power steering. Needs some work but a lot to work with. Have all the original manuals and paper work.

  1. Saw this somewhere: http://www.dailyturismo.com/2014/07/20k-so-i-hear-you-like-motorhomes-1965.html...and the “Lobotomobile”....http://www.wondersandmarvels.com/2016/03/fighting-the-legend-of-the-lobotomobile.html

    Fly to Alaska, buy this, drive to middle of nowhere, recreate final scenes of "Into the Wild". Who wouldn't enjoy that?

    1. Sign me up for eating rancid moose meat and poisonous berries, then dying in the cold, cold loneliness. Sounds great!
