Can someone identify this?
 
Hi, can anyone identify what this is? Make/model/year? It's at a local yard and wondering how difficult it is to get parts..

Very cool. :thumb:

That is very unique which probably translates into hard to find parts but is awesome looking, does seem like driving may be a challenge with the tiny windshield and side windows.

I don't know the year, make or model ... but if the chassis and body were sound, it looks like it could be a candidate for what some folks call "resto-mod". Preserve the exterior as much as possible, and replace the running gear (engine, trans, brakes) with modern or off-the-shelf components.

A lot of folks really love that art deco kind of look and would carry it over to the interior.

Done right, this thing could possibly be worth a bit of money.

Interesting. Looks to be factory built, not home built. Bus or truck chassis most likely. Kinda reminds me of a Brill but...???

I went for Brill as well but could find no evidence to support the claim when I Googled pics of Brills. Jack:popcorn:

I agree that it looks factory built. If this were true, wouldn't there be some sort of manufacturers tag or ID markings someplace? Maybe a VIN?

Neat looking coach with some possibilities. I'd hate to see it go to the crusher.

Not that these would mean much, has anybody ID'd the engine or trans yet?

That bus has Kool written all over it. Fantastic as an advertising bus.

I think it's a Flxible Starliner of some type. The engine and trans was swapped with a more modern V8.

Could be a Class A MH. You could go inside n find the vin tag. Then run it in a vin finder.

There were Spartan trailers converted into buses at one time. Some 3rd party did it; you could order them. I think the production run was in the low double digits. That might be one.
