The Flxible (pronounced “flexible”) Company made all sorts of vehicles from 1913 to 1996, including ambulances, hearses, buses and large coaches.
Orignally the company was named the Flexible Sidecar Company, but they changed their name soon after in order to strengthen their brand.
Although Flxible didn’t make an actual motorhome, some talented RVers have converted Flxible buses into their own mobile homes.
The 1957 Flxible Starliner is one the most popular designs, and it’s iconic shape makes it highly sought-after today.
Powered by a new turbocharged diesel with a six speed transmission, the seller claims it can reach 80 mph on the highway. Why you’d want to drive it that fast is beyond me. Kind of like doing barrel rolls with a WWII fighter plane…no thanks.
Some other specs on this converted bus:
- factory-raised roof
- eyebrow windows
- mahogany trim
- diesel generator
- twin beds
- independent “Torsolastic” suspension (front suspension is totally independent)
If you’re interested in making your own Flxible conversion, take a look at these vehicles available for ‘adoption’ at Flxible Owners International.
