Media Correction: Luxurious Tour Bus Used by Willie Nelson’s Band Set for the Auction Block
AUBURN, Ind., Aug. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Auctions America by RM recently announced it will offer a tour bus formerly part of Willie Nelson’s entourage at its upcoming Labor Day Weekend sale, Aug. 31 – Sept. 2, at the historic Auburn Auction Park in Auburn, Indiana.
While documentation confirms the 1986 Eagle Motorcoach ordered by Mr. Nelson was a 12-year-member of his entourage, it was misidentified in last week’s announcement as ‘Honeysuckle Rose’. The correct name of the tour bus is ‘Me & Paul’ otherwise known as ‘The Scout II’, built specially for Willie Nelson drummer, Paul English, and used by the band from 1986 to 1999.
“Auctions America by RM is committed to the accurate representation of the vehicles we present and go to extraordinary lengths to earn and maintain the trust of consignors and bidders worldwide,” says Donnie Gould, president of Auctions America by RM.
Gould adds, “We regret the ‘Me & Paul’ tour bus was initially misidentified and apologize for any confusion this may have caused. Our team is thrilled to have been entrusted by the seller of this wonderful piece of Americana. We invite everyone to join us and celebrate two of America’s most celebrated past times during our Labor Day Weekend festivities, great country music and collector cars.”
Purchased in 1986 and converted into an Entertainer Sleeper Model by Florida Coach, the tour bus on offer, which has been carefully refurbished, is equipped with sleeping bunks for six, twin lounge areas accommodating seating for 12, a bathroom with standup shower, and separate audio visual systems for each passenger. Powered by a Detroit Diesel turbo-charged engine and automatic transmission, the carefully restored tour bus can easily carry 330 cubic feet of luggage.
