1970 Oldsmobile Toronado Camper Is Chock Full Of Win

I have no idea how Autoblog found this before I did, but here’s one RV that is so full of retro kitsch that it’s actually wrapped the dial back into cool again. Up for grabs on eBay is this custom built, one-of-a-kind 1970 Oldsmobile Toronado GT motor home. From the beige exterior to the dark paneled, plaid-clad interior (complete with faux marble panels), this camper is a time capsule of 1970s tacky goodness. Break out your BTO 8-tracks, squeeze yourself into those polyester bell-bottoms and get ready to hit the road in style. Trust me on this, you won’t be sleeping alone very often, especially if your rocking a serious moustache.

The camper was factory built for an RV industry executive, then sold to a mechanic who replaced the 455 motor with a new short block just 4,000 miles ago. Unfortunately, that was done back in 1986, so the camper hasn’t been used much in the last 24 years. I’d expect it to need a little work and some TLC, but the whole thing is based on ‘70s technology, which means you can repair anything with hand tools and duct tape. It’s also sold without a title since that’s how the last owner registered it in Georgia, so just make sure your state DMV can still issue plates.

With a buy-it-now price of just $15,000, this baby won’t last. If you want exclusivity, this rig is your ticket to the big time. It’s one of one, baby! Even Ferrari 599 GTO owners don’t get that kind of cred. Besides, you can’t sleep, shower or give your disco queen a Samoan piledriver in a Ferrari 599 GTO. I say 1970 Oldsmobile Toronado GT Camper for the win.
