More Details & Pictures

Never Say Never.

Up for sale is a one of a kind 87 Dolphin 4×4 factory converted by Wolverine.  Wolverine conversions became popular in the 1970s, prior to toyota offering 4 wheel drive trucks in the US.  It’s built using a Wagoneer jeep dana 44 solid front axle, and a Dana 300 transfer case.  Rear axle is 1 ton toyota.

In excellent original condition throughout for 35 year old motorhome.

All components work.

Carpeting replaced with marine grade  teak flooring.

22re starts up no problem.  Runs, drives and stops as it should.  4 wheel low works as it should, 2 wheel high works as it should, and 4 wheel high works as well, but the transfer case linkage needs to be addressed.  The job will require custom fabrication to get the linkage right.  If I have the work performed, the price will go up.  All in all, it drives like a Toyota motorhome with a jeep solid front axle.  Happiest to go 55mph, can go 65-70 but not recommended for the faint of heart.

Several thousand dollars invested.

What should be addressed-

This dolphin, like any other 35 year old original dolphin, has some water damage.  The damage is light, but existent.  The roof has been dicor sealed, and presently there are no known leaks.

The transfer case linkage is on the loose side, and should be addressed.  Does not effect its ability to drive in two wheel or 4 wheel low.

There is a 6 lug spare underneath, but needs a new tire.

Airbags hold air, but not for extended periods of time.  Should be replaced.

There is a hitch mounted tire mount for the front that I planned to aquire a 5 lug tire and wheel to accommodate the front dana 44, but have yet to purchase the tire/wheel.  Hitch mount is included  The tires are great all around.

The water heater works, but it is original.  It has a crack and drips slowly, so it should be replaced.

The porch light works, but is missing the plastic cover.

We don’t want to sell this incredible machine, and we don’t need to sell this incredible machine.  But, our work schedules don’t allow us the time to properly enjoy it.  It’s unfair to just let it sit and get its routine Saturday morning drive.  This brilliant specimen deserves better than what we can give her.
