Re: new member 1965 chevy

since these shots the body has been removed from the frame and stripped 2 bare metal frame and susp rebuilt and painted lots of trouble getting parts across the border...delays backorders etc.this is a full resto. not a bus, but easily as much work if not more...timbuk

Re: new member 1965 chevy

You have quite a project on your hands, makes starting with a fresh bus look like child's play!

Nice work

Over the years I've seen quite of few old bus conversions sitting around that looked hailed out from the exterior, now it makes me wonder what was going on inside! Your interior is most excellent.

Take care,
Den
