Created by Keith Moody, the “Master Gator” began as a 1992 Ford B700 with a 5.9 Cummins and Thomas Body, which was picked up in an auction down in Broward County. Working with some of his friends, Keith began by gutting the inside of the bus including seats, rubber floor, plywood subfloor, heaters, driver's seat, and windows. Then using the help of his friend Martin from Master Blaster in Fort Pierce, they sandblasted the inside before priming and painting the complete interior portion of this tailgate machine. Keith even stripped down the windows to their raw aluminum state, and took them to a machine shop where he was able to anodized the frames black. As he would put it, “Not one part of this bus is half assed, all wiring, plumbing paint etc was done right.”
