1970 Glastron Dodge M300 Motorhome











Glastron was a Texas-based boat builder that dabbled with the occasional motorhome when fiberglass was in fashion and big was in. According to a recent ad for this rig, the Glastron Motorhome was in production for 3 years and saddled on a Dodge M300 chassis. Only 200 were made, with this specimen purchased from an old lady who kept it covered in the garage for most of its life. Long live the long vehicle you can live in.

  6. This is our 1970 Glastron with a rebuilt 1972 Dodge 360 motor at about 7.5K miles. New transmission and brakes. She collected a few shitty tags, a ten foot dick and a handful of parking tickets while I worked out a timing issue. I've swapped out pretty much everything that makes her go. Upgrades or replacements to the fuel pump, fuel filter, starter motor, distributor, carburetor, wiring, belts, cables, harnesses, housings, manifolds, vents, hoses, leaks, rot, bad fiberglassing and assorted bullshit seven years my senior. Modernizing as much as possible. Installed Renogy solar panels powering a deep cycle battery bank. Solid runner reading 15mpg with the interior stripped down to jack shit. I'm sure that number'll drop somewhat as we build the living area, certainly with a trailer in tow, but still better than most of these oldies despite being the opposite of aerodynamic. Thanks for noticing and taking such great photos.
