Here's a '64 and '67 I brought home recently. '64 is missing The middle seat but The '67 has them all. Both have typical "North east rust". The guys in the south can't have all the fun! LOL


Heck yeah. Love that Turkis standard!

No, it came from New Hampshire. Was probably in that area most of its life. Import code was for Boston.

These two buses weren't on Facebook Marketplace for a week Skim.
Snagged these two about 10 minutes from my house.
Glad to know they're in good hands.

That westy is identical to one I found in North Dakota in the mid 90's. I passed on it, then checked in with the seller a year later. It had been sold to a young man in Mandan who worked at a local lumber yard. The reason I know this bus isn't the same one is, the Dakota Westy burned to the ground in the parking lot of that lumber yard a few weeks after the kid started driving it.

I forgot to add, the one in NoDak was a flipseat, too. I think the asking price was $2K, but it needed a trans rebuild as I recall.

I really need to find and scan a bunch of my old photos.
