Toronado AQC JETWAY 707

I am an owner of and am looking for information on the American Quality Coach inc's, Jetway 707 limousines. Built mostly for airport shuttle services. Mine being built from a 1968 Toronado. I would also like to hear from any one who also owens one or knows of one for sale or in a parts yard or in some ones yard for that matter.

At one time there were two in White's Auto Salvage in Germanton NC (near Winston-Salem/Greensboro). It's been several years since I was there so don't know if they still have them.

Wow! That is one Helluva Custom Cruiser. Would definitely qualify for the Land Yacht category, actually for the Aircraft Carrier category!

There you go Olds64 the landyacht club president should surely be riding in the back of that baby with a motorcade of "little" 98's in tow.

At the risk of yet again changing topics within a thread (), how about this Toro conversion:

Joe, there's one of those across town growing in the weeds! It does seem like an interesting car hauler!

Yes its bigger then a land yacht. I agree its an aircraft carrier sized car. How do you turn 90 degree corner without jumping the curb. Install a hot tub couple of cuties from Hooters and your in business.

I thinkd that it could be on the same frame as my 707. Wich I understand was later used as the frame for the GM motor homes.

I can take my 707 almost anyplace I can take a 4-door. But alleys give me problems.
When this was a chauffeur for Carey San Diego. I drove it to Seattle Wa., Denver Co. and Phoenix Az. As well as around San Diego. And no this is not one of the ones that
La Costa Spa & Resort had.

Looks like a great set-up.

I'm glad it's not a rare model. Seems like there are plenty of '78's.

There was one at the 2006 OCA Nationals in Dallas, TX, and It was for sale. It did take up quite a bit of space, and was "show only" as I recall.

If you ever want to sell your Jetway 707, PLEASE let me know. I've been looking for one for about 6 months. Thank you.

The original post for this was 2008, not likely the auto is still available.
