If you want to complete your Willie Nelson memorabilia collection, you’ve got to bid on a tour bus that was used by the country music star.

Willie’s tour bus will be for sale at the Classic Car Auction of Toronto on October 21 to 23 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. It will take its place alongside cars and trucks from 1912 to 2010.

This Eagle Model 10 motor coach came into Willie’s possession in 1986 and he and his band toured with it for several years. It’s adorned with hand-painted murals, comes with six beds, twin lounge areas, a bathroom with shower, and separate audio-visual systems.

If the tour bus doesn’t interest you, you can bid on other cars such as a 1926 Chrysler Model 58 Touring, 1936 Cord Phaeton 810, 1956 Monarch Rideau, 1997 Dodge Viper GTS Coupe and a 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS Dale Earnhardt Edition.
