That is so unique – especially in this day on almost common stretched H2s, Expeditions, etc. That puppy is already up to 300 grand – whew!

From the eBay listing:

"We took a boeing 727 Jet, cut off the wings, tail, and 1/2 of the plane, and it is now a street legal "Limousine"

Looking at all the pictures, that "1/2" the aircraft they're talking about doesn't look like a real 727 fuselage, to me anyways. The nose is real, no doubt, but the appearance of the windows and the door don't appear to be a real 727.

Now, if it's indeed not a real fuselage, then they really didn't cut the wings/tail off it. Could be that someone's going to be paying $300K for a modified RV with a 727 "nose" stick on it....

Is it just me or does that thing look a wee bit too narrow to be a 727 fuselage. I mean in one pic the guy almost hits the roof, even though the floor level is below where it would be for an airline 727.

Some clown named Abdur153, a new Ebay member with no feedback has bid the price up from $50,00`.00 to $299,900.00, and the reserve has been met. What a joke!

It's one of the 16 Boeing 727-100 TAESA once had. I don't recall what frame it exactly was. And a mexican in GDL built that limo/727 two years ago.
