We’re pleased to announce we have another shop for sale.
One of a kind!!! That’s the only way to explain this completely gutted, renovated and overhauled 1977 Airstream. Converted in 2015 into Missouri’s first and only mobile barbershop, The Shiny Hiney is truly custom. This beautifully retro mobile barbershop is more than just a place to cut hair on wheels: this baby gives you the opportunity to operate, advertise and be 100% owner of your business!
Why rent a chair in a shop and limit your customer base by being immobile, when you could service the city by going where you’re needed most? Gain free advertising and widen your reach by participating in weddings, corporate events, classic car shows and fairs!
If you’ve ever dreamed of being a business owner: this is your chance!
This gem was completely overhauled and upgraded. Starting from the outside in, the entire exterior was polished using nuvite and the damaged back bumper was fixed. But as the old saying goes: it’s what’s on the inside that counts and this statement has never been more accurate. The interior was then completely gutted all the way to the studs, the frame was reinforced, and it was rebuilt from scratch to meet the needs of a retro barbershop, complete with antique chairs and classic barbers’ poles at every station and a show shine area.
Custom benches were built over one wheel well to create extra seating, and the old bathroom was completely upgraded with a new toilet, custom vanity and shampoo bowl to replace the shower. To complete the retro design, the barber’s station top and drawers were custom made from century-old walnut.

Exterior: 3-pass nuvite shine, refinished factory rims in black, heat resistant paint on top, tinted windows, rear bumper repaired, tires 2 yrs old;
