Yes they unbolted it along with the spring plates and torsion bars, so today I got busy and robbed all those goods from one of my parts donors. Now sheís back on all fours and looking better already. Oh, and I pushed the dent out of the rear of the roof and it popped out like butter!

Have you considered simply starting with a nicer bus? I don't know what your skills are, but the race is easier if you can see the finish line. If you are not a runner, don't start off doing a marathon.

^^^

Where are the pinstripes on the PGSG? With such strong paint, seems they should be there. Canadian market? I have a PGSG here, from Canada that had/has stripes.. Confused

Excellent project, nice buy.

Good eye Long-roofs. The upper stripe is there but very worn away and faint, if you look closely at the drivers side just above the engine vents you can make out a section of the sand green stripe. The lower stripe seems to be missing or possibly worn right away. Maybe the quality and durability of the stripes varied through the years or maybe it was removed all together at some point? This is my fourth Canadian PGSG bus and Iím pretty sure they all had dual pin stripes. In fact I had another 56 that was 4000 VINs after this one and it had pin stripes but the bumper colors were reversed.🤔
See the pics below. First two are of the bus at hand and the last one is the other 56 I owned.

I bought this 21 Window over the winter but had to wait for it to "thaw out" so I could get it dug up.

Nice find, 1964 I think?

It looks a little rusty. Is the frame rough underneath?

'64 is correct. Good eye! It's a rusty heap like most of them in the north east. It was parked "out back" in 1976. Too rusty for me but I couldn't see leaving it to rot another 40 years.

Love seeing OG paint markings in the bucket, even if that color is on its final leg...cool. Lichtgrau is an awesome color too.

It makes a potato chip look solid. On the left is that the under-ass to it or has that already been said?
