(To far gone, but interesting)
I don't know why they say "no engine or transmission". The transmission is right there in the luggage bay, for everyone to see!

Yeah this bus if from a fascinating design era, but every window on it seems to be busted and I'm sure that's not the end of the carnage. It still looks cool.

Looks like the before photo of the rv Jeff Daniels drove from the movie "RV" with Robin Williams! That's a total frame off restoration project! Would make a cool rv though.

WOW!
some of these buses are what my dreams are populated with....love the '70s look with the "hump" on top for extra height.
I told my better half my dream is to get a full size, strip it completely like most of you guys do, raise the roof, give it that angled hump, maybe put in a custom window up there...for some reason, she looked at me like i was crazy...

I don't know why they would want to cover good metal with fiberglass ends. Needs work, but that's a pretty respectable price. Reported to need tires.

how do you know what size tires can be fitted to your bus and what pressures to run? I see all kinds of info about some people putting bigger or smaller tires on, different PSI they run etc..

with cars there was enough public interest normally where tire sizes were tested so people knew what they could and couldnt get away with as far rub, driveability, heat, etc..

I dont see the same for busses..

plus seems like different kind of wheels.. "budd" vs "dayton".. mine are "dayton" it appears..
