Hello all! I just posted my first in the COVID-19 thread as that seems to be a very current topic our world is facing before I could do this proper into to myself. Sorry about that won't happen again.
So, like the title says, I am pursuing 2 project busses:
1. In hand: 1946?? Chevy truck Wayne body bus. Joint skoolie project with longtime friend. Stalled project as it still sits at the yard we got it from because it needs tires to roll onto a lowboy while the split rim Chevy Big Bolt wheels are Stupid Dangerous and one piece wheels in this pattern are made from unobtainum. Seller is the scrap metal collecting desert rat type that has philosophical discussions with his cat and isn't entirely sure my buddy and I are not Government Agents out to steal his lucky charms.
Youtube walkaround video:
2. In head: toy hauler wanted. I am thinking ~40' FE flatnose with ~6.5' ceiling. Rear cap neatly sliced off and hinged for rear garage door and vehicle ramp setup. I am torn between school bus and shuttle bus. The school bus is silly strong if interior room is available (at least 14' rear garage length or slightly more) while the shuttle already has the room and some have the potty already. Co-pilot door/seat a definite + if possible. Garage takes up lots of feet in back so I am studying the other toy hauler threads this board is hosting, I have already learned I had some terrible ideas I won't be trying as others have already BTDT. Thanks in advance for saving me lots of time/trouble Skoolie!
Meanwhile, the dune buggy is UFO (Unbelieveably Fun Object) and this bus idea would be the mothership. For the buggy types out there, she is a replica of an EMPI Imp made by Unique Supply in the 2000s before the economy tanked the business. It's an exact copy of the 2nd generation Imp body first made circa 1970. They sold several hundred of these bodies in that decade and are still available today from a fella in Michigan IIRC. Because of the roof cage at about 6' the taller ceiling is wanted.
Thanks for reading!
