1991 Thomas Built 59 passenger

I've had this bus in operation now for just a little over a year. It is a 1991 Thomas Built 59 passenger 5 speed manual with a 366 under the hood. Just like everyone's skoolie it is a continuing work in progress. Last fall this bus found it's major purpose as a tailgating/ party bus, mostly used for Iowa State football. So right now, the conversion is kind of non-traditional compared to many of the awesome RV conversions I've seen around here. As soon as I get some better pics, I'll be sure to post them.

Interior Pictures

I have finally posted some interior pics HERE.



Future projects include:

- PAINT JOB

- tinting all the side windows

- changing the captain's chair to something more comfy

- addition of more stereo amps and speakers

- hiding the wires behind the stereo

- underbody storage

- possible co-captain's chair



I am also interested in possibly using this bus for RAGBRAI. A deck on top of the bus would be nice. Does anyone have any tips on building one? (Plans, material, etc) Thanks for any comments!

I see you started putting in cabinets I like you used the rivets that hold the roof skin on to also hold up the cabinet. When are you bringing it back up to Ames

I drove by your house on the way to work and took some pictures of the new paint job!

excellent work on the paint job ! I like seeing skoolies that really stick out. You shouldn't have any trouble remembering where you parked when you walk out of the wal-mart store.
