If you have a need to relive the 1970s, then here is the vehicle for you. This groovy blast from the past is a 1976 GMC Motorhome currently for auction in Florida on eBay Motors, and it is one green machine – just not in the modern sense.

The seller claims that this beast has had just two owners and has covered a mere 61,308 miles in its decades on the road. It's reportedly never been restored or repainted and comes with all of the necessary books and manuals. A 7.5-liter (455-cubic-inch) Oldsmobile V8 with a three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission powering the front wheels propels this far-out RV, and the double set of rear wheels out back use a self-leveling air suspension to provide a cushy ride.

The purported low miles and good condition really make this GMC a stand out, though. The exterior combination of lime stripes and beige with just a touch of green is like nothing else on the road today. Plus, the polished bumpers and wheels make it all pop. Inside, it's even better with monochromatic green upholstery and shag carpet. It features everything you'd ever need on a long trip, including a bathroom, kitchenette and lots of seating. The only hint of modernization is an HD TV next to the stove, but its size is a perfect fit for the hole there.

The fact this motorhome has made it this long without more updates is somewhat miraculous. Hopefully, the person that buys it has enough restraint to leave the styling as-is to keep it looking like this for another 38 years. As of this writing, this '70s relic has bidding at $18,400 with the reserve not yet met, and the auction ends on June 20. Can you dig it?

      there is a big club dedicated to these RVs, I remember growing up in the seventies and thinking how cool/modern these were.

        Same here. I remember there was this one house in our neighborhood where they painted their house the same color as their motorhome and built a special attached garage for it.

        Many of them are getting modernized drivetrains, but are otherwise being brought back to stock as near as is possible.

      It's great if you want to zip in and zip right out of Czechoslovakia

      Awesome blast from the past. My grandparents had an FMC (somewhat similar to the GMC only better - really!) and we went all over the good 'ole USA in it. Such amazing memories!!

      This looks a lot like the RV from "STRIPES".

      Want! While the interior screams 70s (in a good way), the exterior is such a timeless design and still looks fresh decades alter.

      I grew up in the 70s and can vividly recall the GMC motorhome the parents of a friend of mine had. Looked just like this, except it was solid yellow. It seemed really exotic at the time; today, it seems even more advanced than the new motorhomes I see on the road. Never knew they were front-wheel-drive.

      Was the writer of this unaware of this vehicles use in the classic movie "Stripes"?

      That's really cool in a what-the-hell-were-we-thinking sort of way.
