Want to own a piece of country music history? If you’ve got upwards of $50,000 in cash on hand, you could own Willie Nelson’s old tour bus. And boy, it’s a doozy.

Built for Nelson in the 1980s, the bus is currently for sale on Craigslist in Tyler, Texas through midnight tonight — the owner lists May 3 at 12am CT as the new cutoff time due to “the extremely high demand and the amount of offers being thrown at us for this bus.” The listing notes that the current offer as of 10am CT this morning is $36,000 (UPDATE: the price is now $52,000). So go ahead, call your broker or cash in that 401k, you can certainly beat that!

The bus is listed as a 1983 Eagle, with a “92 Detroit diesel” engine, automatic transmission and a “15kW diesel generator.” It gets 7 mpg, but hey, you’re not buying this to pick up groceries or your kids from school (then again…it beats the heck out of a Subaru). “The bus is in great working condition without any issues,” the current owner writes.

The real treats are on the inside, though, where it’s been tricked out like an vintage Old West saloon. The walls are lined with wood paneling, the curtains are a deep red velvet and there are even some stained-glass windows.
