Check This Out! 727 Limo!

Mon Jul 17, 2006 7:28 am

Check this out guys.

This guy converted a Boeing 727 into the ultimate aviation enthusiasts limousine!

Wouldn't this be the ultimate to pull up to an A.nutters meet!

While the nose might be from a 727, the "fuselage" appears to be from something else, based on the windows, anyway.

If he thinks he's gonna get 1/2 million for it he's nuts...  Wink

haha lol it is pretty smart, you would think that after taking the 727 nose they would maybe try and spell Boeing correctly.

Cool though.

Well, it's nice and all, but does it *handle*?  Wink Actually, I think its a *lot* better than this: Another "LimoJet".

This limo reminded me of another cool aircraft conversion:

Howard Hughes' 307 Stratocruiser that was converted into a yacht.

Ah, to have that kind of disposable income!

Horrible to see a beautiful 727 wasted on the roads when it could be flying in the air. Sad to see a jet in that condition.

I thought the same thing....nose looks familiar but when looking at the rest, the familiarity stops. The 727 nose looks to be partially there as the girth or size of the fuselage just doesn't seem be big enough to be a full 727 fuselage. Not sure what, but almost could be a corporate jet of some sort attached to a partial 727 nose.
