Re: 1972 Flxible - what would you do?

That is a great looking bus and the price is right. I wouldn't hesitate to convert that one, but I can do a lot of work myself. To make it reliable enough to drive it cross country everything would have to rebuilt, but if you are only making trips a couple hundred miles at a time you could just fix things up as you go. Fixing the rust isn't too hard on vehicles shaped like boxes.

That's cute... would make a great mobile kitchen/supply vehicle to pull the hot dog cart with (I need to build one). How long is it?

Re: 1972 Flxible - what would you do?

If rust is the main concern, and you could get the owner down some, I'd probably jump on it if I was so inclined.
I'm not familiar w/ flxis, but they've always looked cool to me. I like the front glass on them.
A fun project, that. Good luck, whatever you choose.

That's a nice looking bus, a guy could make that look like a motorhome.
