The Decoliner is an extreme build, designed by Randy Grubb to appear to be a 1940s period sculpture that could have been Flash Gordon’s motor home.

Built on a 1973 GMC RV chassis with an Olds 455 engine, it features the nose of a White 3000 COE truck cab and a flying bridge with a second driving station up top.


Grubb got an offer on the Decoliner in July 2013 that he couldn’t refuse, so took his buddies with him on the vehicle’s final shakedown voyage to Sequoia National Forest in California./ Randy Johnson

After the Decoliner passed its final tests on mountain roads with flying colors, Randy turned over the keys to its new owner in Michigan. Look for it at car shows and on the highway!
