Found a bus. There it is. 1965 blue and white standard. Older respray. Some rust issues. Genuine bullet holes in the gas tank. I guess that is one way to drain it.

The bus doesn't appear to have too much rust from the pictures you posted. If I were in your shoes ...

I'm pretty sure that bus was a local craiglist bus. IIRC, it sat on craiglist for a few months at $6500.
