I have lurked here for years and thought I would share. My father has a 1955 Ford conversion that he converted in the early 1960's and took it all over the US and Canada hunting and fishing. In the 1980's it was parked and just sat. About two years ago we decided to restore it, I mainly got involved with it because it allows us to spend quality time together. Below is one before picture and three pictures from this weekend. We have the luxury of working in a pole barn so I hope to have the exterior finished this winter and start on the interior this Spring. The interior was finished, but we gutted it as the floor needed new metal.
The lighting is not the best and the bus looks white, but it actually has a white top and light grey sides. The hood and front end are now being worked on and I will paint the same style flames on the hood and front fenders.
