Pre-67, noted by the tag instead of a bogie and the way the engine is set in (lots of room behind engine)
Sorry that's as close as I can get due to modifications. Serial number would help.. :) :) :)

It's a 01 Eagle with 05 front corners and blades fwiw Dreamscape has the last 01 built in 1968 he removed all the 05 front end and went back to 01 front end looks good too  ::)

That's kinda what I thought, it was a 01, I just don't understand why some guys want to chop off the classic looks of an old coach.
like grafting a 68 corvette front clip on a 58 model.
It is what it is.... :'(

So sad to see a classic 01 that's been modified! To each his own I guess.....

I would guess it to be '67 - '68. A VIN # would be nice.


I changed mine back like Clifford said, it looks so much better!  8) I didn't modify the front, a previous owner had. Must have punched somebody!  ::)

Yes, we do have the last Model 01 made by Silver Eagle. Pretty darn proud of that fact too!  8)
