Re: 1964 Bristol Lodekka- Double Decker Bus

Now that is a cool bus. I can picture a galley and bath downstairs, along with a small lounge, and two bedrooms upstairs. What are your plans?

The few double deckers I've seen in my area, Cincinnati, OH, have been parked for decades and most are in worse shape than yours. That made me wonder about the reliability and avaiability of parts, being that they are old and British. How well does yours run and have you had to buy any parts?

Re: 1964 Bristol Lodekka- Double Decker Bus

Welcome to the group and great start! That's quite a project, but having a second floor will make a huge difference, living-wise. Took a ride in a modern 45 foot d-decker a few years back and having twice the floorspace on the same foot-print made for a pretty amazing layout. Best of luck with the old girl and do keep us up to date.
