About Vulcan Coach Corporation

a family
When Norm Basden’s gospel quartet needed a tour bus, he undertook the job himself. Norm moved a bus into his backyard, removed the seats and did some conversion work, including carpeting and adding beds. After the bus was completed, other singers approached Norm about converting a coach for them. Thus, one of the oldest conversion companies in America, Norm’s Custom Coach was born, the name was later changed to Vulcan Coach Corporation.
Vulcan Coach got off to a good start due to the hard work and expertise of its founder. The company soon gained a reputation for designing entertainer coaches. The earliest conversion for a rock star was for Jackson Browne. After that, others lined up, including Martina McBride, Ronnie Dunn, Pam Tillis, Brooks & Dunn and Waylon Jennings. Garth Brookes is a repeat client of Vulcan Coach.
Today, Vulcan Coach is headed by Bruce Basden, Norm’s son. In addition to entertainer coaches, Vulcan Coach also does motor home conversions, executive day coaches, medical coaches, emergency evacuation vehicles, disaster relief vehicles and the super coach. The company also does major remodels.
Vulcan Coach welcomes you to enjoy the world of luxury bus conversions and custom motor coaching with us. We invite you to visit and enjoy our southern hospitality, while we provide prompt professional service in a friendly, hassle-free atmosphere.
