This is by far the best driving bus I've ever had. It drives straight, stops straight and hard, handles bumps tightly. It will cruise on the freeway around 70 with easy at around 3000 rpm. Will go 75 and faster no problem. Very little play in the wheel and shifts smoothly. There's been a lot of time and money buried into the undercarriage on this thing and it drives accordingly. The motor revs quick and cleanly and honestly it feels like a bigger motor than the 1776.

One year only! 58s are very cool and unique and highly desirable. The body on this bus is pretty solid and straight. Especially compared to the rusty and wrecked busses I've seen for sale for big money. You'll save thousands in sheet metal and body work by buying a better bus. The frame is solid. There are a few rust issues that I can see need addressed:
Cargo door side rocker needs replacing. The first few inches of the cargo door side of the floor need replacing. The very bottom of the front doors as some perforations that can only be seen if you look under the door. The very bottom of the cargo door inner structures have some rust issues. Can't really get full picture of the front floor since the mat is glued down. But, looking underneath it looks pretty solid. And the rear wheel wells have been replaced at some point and were done poorly so this need to be redone on both sides. I will post and have plenty of pictures of the problem areas. The 58 only decklid is rust free and straight, but the key hole looks like it was opened with a can opener lol. Overall it's a very solid bus with what I believe is minimal rust issues compared to some of the buses that are for sale lately. Can deliver it to areas 500 miles of Las Vegas with a small non refundable deposit.
. This bus is priced fair and is a really fun driving bus and isn't going down in value. You can text me and I will send you lots of pictures. Thanks!
Side note: I did not build this bus I bought it pretty much how you see it. I got the information about the parts included in the build and in any information about the build from the previous owner. But from everything I can see it looks exactly like described. Look here for even more pics.
More pics.
