I updated your title so Goliath is in the title now

I don't think they are as popular as VWs but it might be worth putting on eBay, depending on the condition.

I noticed you just joined the site.
Did you think it might be a strange version of a VW Bus?
I ask that because I did a Google image search of your first pic and Google thinks it's a VW Bus. Smile

Yes, at first I thought it was a 23 window VW but knew something wasn't quite right about it...no rear engine bay and the front end wasn't right. I tried a google search and couldn't find anything. I been playing in classic cars my entire life and thought I was pretty informed but this one stumped me! I appreciate the help here and hopefully I can find a home for this and save it! Amazingly it's pretty rust free....but I read somewhat some of it's body is aluminum.
