What can you tell me about this bus?

Hey everyone, long time lurker...first time member/poster. We have this bus coming up on an auction, and it looks too good to resist. Not sure what I'd do with it, but at least I'd buy it for scrap value. It's a 1964 GMC without an engine. How much does it weigh? Here is a link to the website if anyone is interested. http://www.larsensauctions.com/index.ph ... te-Auction Thanks for your help!

Looks like a storage shed! No engine? That would make for one major project bus. There is a bus that looks very similar a few miles from here. I have often thought that it would make a great project, unique body shape, but lots of work.

That has got to be an early 50's bus. I think GM went to the new look (fishbowl) by the mid-60's.

It would be a shame to scrap a bus like that. Looks pretty cool to me but way over my head getting it back in shape. Hope you get it.

Don't know much about it but the body sure has some nice lines.

Yea...I bought the bus yesterday! We are going to go rob some parts off it on Saturday and then pull it into the scrap yard. The family actually cleaned it all out before the auction and cheered Move That Bus when we pulled it out of the spot it had been sitting for the last 20 or so years. It has a couple seats I'm going to take out, lights, grab bar and a few other goodies but then I should make some money when I haul it in. That will be a fun ride, about 20 miles back roads to the scrapper!
