It is a beauty. I'm curious as to the cost of your bus. Do post more pics and your progress!

Hey guys here's an update. This bus is actually the sister bus of my original photos and was in much better shape. I got the bus home, made a 4 hour trip from downstate ny to my shop in syracuse the bus ran super strong and had no issues. My brother in law and I tore the seats out which wasn't to much of a task (we did torche a couple bolts off) hopefully this week I'll be able to start tearing the floor up and getting the roof painted. The blue paint is in surprisingly good shape, I buffed a section of it and it really shined.

We'll jean, I got super lucky and bought this from a prep school that is essentially so rich that they were going to scrap this instead of sell it and my brother in law (whose father is the head maintenance guy at this school) got it for me for $400

I haven't time this week to make any progress on the bus, I'm doing a build out on my second location of my coffee shop and I'm opening in a couple days. The bus has come in handy for hauling stuff around. Here's some pics of the new shop, I'm super happy on how it's looking (especially cause I did all the build out and furniture building)






And here are my two scooters I plan on toting around in or on the bus
