Re: The Cockabus

Re: The Cockabus

I don't peruse this section (Conversion Projects) that often so I didn't find your topic till now.

Awesome paint job. Like the window treatment (the tinting). I bet a lot of Gamecocks fans who see your rig love its name. Your bus has a different purpose than mine (which is to look like a fancy conversion school bus on the outside and a Winnebago on the inside). You've got the best dashboard treatment I've seen so far. Aesthetic drawback to most school buses is the stock instrument panel is austere at best and dog-ugly at worst.

Most of all, it's nice to see a DODGE on Skoolie.net. I've always been a fan of Dodge trucks and RVs and was elated when I saw "my" first Dodge school bus years ago.

Re: The Cockabus

I've seen three Dodges lately: one about the same year as yours with a Wayne body in Omaha, a 1968 with Superior coach about twenty miles away, and a 1971 with Carpenter body in Casey, Iowa, between here and Des Moines. I test-drove that one and liked it. The real deal-breaker was that it was too short to squeeeze my design into. Every once in a while one shows up on Craigslist (where I discovered the one in Casey) or eBay.

What electrical problems did you have? Good to have a heads-up.

Re: The Cockabus

FYI...

The Gator Bus is now for sale too. Not knowing what some of these things have gone for, what do you guys think this is worth?

Is currently located in Jacksonville, FL.
