Maybe if it was a decent and complete 21... maybe... I wouldn't pay it


Glad the seller clarified it's a "restoration project." What other sort of project would it be? That's a lot of coin for 3 pictures of (basically) the same view.

Totally not the same view Surprised ... you missed that the safari windows have either been installed... or removed.
I wonder which.


True. Probably removed, otherwise the price would be $30k. It's also amusing that of all the items to note, the drum brakes need to be rebuilt. No sh!t.

64-67 rear hatches are date stamped too. Look around the latch, bottom center. Cool

On my 8/64 (1965 model) bus, the front doors are both stamped 4/64 and the rear hatch is 2/64.

Nearly everything is date stamped somewhere, from engine tins to roof skins, a few months earlier than the vehicle production date is common, a date later is cause for concern.

Some people must be spoiled. $50 for a split door in todays money is NOTHING. somebody will make good use of a date matching donor door. I am glad that certain people are keeping their parts and offering them to others in need, for a fair and reasonable price.
What would you get for $50 in poor quality reproduction parts today ? Wink



Where is the date on a door?

Just for fun- price out shipping that door for meat removal. That hulk is a panel clip donor- and I pay up .50 each for good ones. It's a $1 door- all marrow, no meat.


I've shipped plenty of cab doors. Shipping to the West coast about $40 to $50, east coast about 60 or 70. FedEx.

Thank you for the increased traffic to my classifieds page. I appreciate it.


It's traffic purely out of morbid curiosity- not a sales lead. Traffic on your ad is not the same as views on your youtube video of you pulling that out of a metal recycler's crusher. It will never be on a bus, a bus bar or barn art bus parts exhibit. It's just total junk sir. Please pull through. Smile

Spoken like someone who lives in a rust free area, around here that's a donor for it's clean lower extremities at the very least, I'd rather hammer out bent German metal than deal with rust, sadly shipping would make it not worth the time in most cases. Wink
