I guess I don't see this as a "transit". More like a CLASSIC, with a bit of bookmobile thrown in.
If I didn't already have one! I like the one pictured
I had picked out a 69 chevy with a 454 and 10 speed manual (i could have worked on every bit of that one)and when It was time to go to the bus barn i was stuck at work and my wife recruited the/her father in law to bring the bus home? when they got there they said the upper management said it had to many problems liability/insurance wise for them to let us have it. So they had free pick of the used lot and couldnt call me cause of where i was at and they had sit there for 2-3 hours while the barn went through what they picked with the full check up and the mech.s supposedly replaced some o-rings somewhere before it could be released. I did get full maintenance records,build specs,wiring diagrams and most of all cause it was delivered to the barn brand new.
That's how the Jolly Roger was/is a ford b-700 with an 8.2 and a545 with 6.5 rear and I will make what I have work. My two boys named him.
I did go find the man at the bus barn and discussed the 69 I picked out and just happened to be there as the DOT had equipment there to demo and scrap.my 69?
I wanted that one cause I knew the main power train and the hydraulic brake system.and loved the look
Now I have the exact opposite but have grown up with diesel farm equipment and have done compressed air for many years. Sorry if this is to long but save your money and pick the power train you can work with from the start. I am 90% inside and 50%under as far as storage. Still need genny and batteries and can only do 49mph because of my original power package and lack of money/decisions.
But I will run the back roads all the way to texas and I can do a little bit better than a tractor so don't honk at the back door cause I won't ever here ya.
