Looking it up on Wikipedia, it says:
"Cummins NHH 743 cu in (12.2 L) I6; Diesel 1954-1972 (743); Mid-engine Supercoach; first diesel engine in a school bus"

First diesel in a skoolie! That's a bit of history to rescue.

That looked pretty good, body wise. On the other hand the pictures showed so much rust that it was enough to scare me off. Not that I'd have a way of getting that to my home anyway.

Let's make a tow dolly for buses.
