That shit will buff out!

What year is it?
Any Idea?
The motor looks like a 53 but I donít know how to tell them apart yet
The previous owner didnít have a clue
I didnít get the ownership with it. The mto doesnít have it anymore.
I will go to my storage next week to get the vin # to confirm the year

It's no earlier than a 53 because of the standard wing windows (versus the piano hinge on 52 and earlier).

It could be later than 53, but probably isn't because of the 25hp looking engine. 53 was the last year for that, which you probably know. It seems common that 25hp motors were replaced with 36hp motors, but not the other way around.

How many hands will this bus be passed to before it actually ends up road worthy? My guess is the third owner.

If somebody sells it to Andre it will get done! :D

I'm staying out of this. I've got my own problems. :lol:

Good score though. Post up the vin, I'm curious to know how close it is to the 3 Canadian '53's I have here.

I will get this one done, no plans to cut it or let it sit.
I am currently working on 2 buses & this one is next in line
I will post the vin after the weekend
I can use some new green metal from you concept1
Can you help me with a good deal?

There is now an Autocraft sheet metal dealer here in Ontario, with quite a bit of metal in stock. They don't offer as much barndoor stuff as Klassic Fab, but what they do have is of exceptional quality and nice that it is local. The owner hasn't posted ads here yet as he is waiting to get his website fully functional beforehand, but stuff is in stock. I can provide contact info if interested. Best of luck with it.

Great to hear! Start a thread in the Barndoor forum so all us nerds can follow your progress. :D Congrats on it, and good luck.

Took a drive up to Medford last weekend- sad to see Garcias in Yreka is all bays now... However I did find a 64-67 hardtop deluxe and a 60-61 Singlecab.
