just picked my first bus up today, its a 63 11 window. Happy to be able to keep it in my family. my uncle has owned this bus since 2007 and he rolled it around LA until new years day 2019. pretty much exactly what I wanted in a bus, small hatch, ice pics, outie vents.

my uncle is an artist type guy and made all and stenciled the bus up how he wanted it. im probably gonna leave it as is.

Currently sits as. I added some Commercial style caps I painted. planning on lowering it a small amount and running Randar circus wheels on it. for now though, stock is cool.

Very happy that it is a french bus, matches my notch.

when me and my brother picked it up in LA in 2019 we rolled up to the LA96C former missile site up in LA.

Congrats on the new bus! Thanks for the quick tour, can’t wait to see more! I dig the stencils and cool family connection.

quick update, picked up a full length rack, flipped spindles and a t-3 trans from my buddy who un-lowered his 15w.

I'm not great at taking pictures of work, only ones I took were were these 2 lol
pulled the RGB trans and motor out, swapped to the Empi a1 clone exhaust

Done, got some Randars under it, and I'm pretty happy where it sits. Also, removed about 95% of the stencils

Hello
Are you sure it's come from France? Shocked
If so, it has been changed in a US model...
Mine has UK on the M Plate and come from East USA... (And I found it close to my house in the Alps...) Rolling Eyes
