For Sale: 1990 GMC/Bluebird (gas) already converted

32 seater (had a wheelchair lift orig.) Denton, TX (north of Dallas) Needs a few finishing touches. I wasn't happy with the type of water line connections I used, needs a new water pump (for the running water, not the engine). I never ran a duct for the heather. There are a backup camera and a solar battery charger included that I didn't get around to installing. I converted it as a hippie type bus/RV, but the outside needs repainting. The inside is pretty cool. Fridge, TV, microwave, generator, kitchen & bathroom sinks, shower, range/oven, stereo, A/C on roof, toilet, fresh, gray & black water tanks. (2) brand new batteries. Plenty more pics. wretched_hyena@yahoo.com About to retire overseas. Need to sell quickly (by Jan. 3). Clear title ready to sign over. $2000 Heck, the parts are worth more than that!

Story behind the bus

By the way, there's a story behind Furthermore. There was a pop festival in Lewisville, Texas, in 1969, two weeks after Woodstock. I was there. There was a bus named Further, owned by Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. It was the original hippie bus. There was even a book about Kesey's adventures in the bus, with his commune, and in other things, called The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. The bus, driven by Kesey's best friend, also in the book, Ken Babbs, was used at Woodstock. After Woodstock, they drove down to participate in the Texas International Pop Festival. After the festival, Babbs drove Further back to Kesey's farm, in Oregon, where it died. A second Further was built, and still runs. In 1999, I became a sort of historian of the festival. I had a website for fifteen years, but got tired of paying for it. I still have a Facebook page for it. I bought the bus on eBay to make into an RV and paint like a hippie bus for personal use and to use at festival related events. It served both purposes. Of course, I named it after Further. I never really finished the paint job. I visited some of the people who played there and organizers of the festival. I also visited Ken Babbs and both Further busses. A few years ago, I applied for and won an official Texas State Historical Marker. I held a fundraiser with several bands to pay for the marker (they aren't paid for by the state, but by a sponsor) and got permission from Denton County Transportation Authority to put the marker at the Hebron Station for the A-Train. That was built behind where the stage had been. I'm now retiring to the Philippines, and have to get Furthermore up. BTW, I actually drove it to Mexico. It got X-rated coming back, and there's a whole story to that. I was a sign painter, and that is the poster painted on the side of Furthermore. Check out the bands on the poster.

Wow! Thank you so much for that history lesson! I have seen pics of "Further" and knew a bit of the story, but not that much. I'd love to see more pics of Furthermore... I love the paint job and would like to glean some ideas from it!

Hurry

I installed new batteries today. It fired right up and ran like a champ. I'm so proud of that bus. It's been a really dependable vessel. It's at the apartment now for viewing (see picture). I have to sell this week.
