Last rescue of the year for me. Pretty rough but still worth digging out. NY is not kind to vehicles. Hard to find them around here before Tracy does...lol. Laughing

M-Code is missing. It's quite the rough bus, but it's totally buildable (especially for what it is)! The passenger/driver doors and the cargo doors along with a bunch of spare parts that were stored in the bus until it was rescued are at the PO's house, so another trip is in the works Very Happy

Cool. Are you not sure it's 1961?
It has to be 1961 since it has low hinge cargo doors.

I knew sometime around 1961 they switched from high to low but I wasn't 100% sure when. Thanks for the clarification!

Wow, it is almost the twin to my 57. Very nice score you have there.
