Bought A 68' Gillig!

Started out on here looking into short buses and eventually decided I wanted a 35 foot gillig pusher. This rig has a DT466 installed in it. Needs a little body work, but no major rust on the drip rails/roof. Starting to track down appliances and parts. Gonna be fun.

Congratulations. Welcome to Gillig Nation. Looks like a sweet old bus.

That had me worried, too: looks like a misplaced apostrophe. Whew. (My bus is 34 feet and feels pretty long. Twice that long? No, thanks!)
