I like how the splash pans were left on, but the bumper is off. Is it a Dual chester ?

That's a weird pic, almost looks photoshopped because of it being in the air but with a flat-bottomed tire

If it didn't break in 1/2 right then, you are good Very Happy

Love that 15 window. Check out Burkyhamners thread for 15 window inspiration. Single cab in previous post is also very very nice!

Feels like forever since Ive pulled something fresh.
66 bench seat. Some camper parts laying in it.
Bulkhead was cut out Sad
Relatively solid other than needing outer rocker work on both sides.

Since it's in vogue to give titles to buses, we could refer to this one as the "Abortion bus."

Visiting an old friend today and we found a bunch of splits out in his woods. This is just one.

Dont know anything about splits. Ive always had bays. Weve been looking for chassis numbers. What an adventure!
