My thought was- you don't have to look far for Trans/frame horns ect.
Let me guess: they were going to use it in a Dune Buggy...... Confused

Yes, it lost its transmission to a dune buggy probably around 1986. I brought in the transmission and frame section. They did unbolt the transmission and not just hack it out, that's just how I had the pieces sitting

So after about 12 hours of driving we made it home with our new original Turkis paint bus. What I thought was going to be a 1 hour recovery turned into a 4-5 hour ordeal. We first met with the owners daughter who we followed to this small goat path type trail after driving a few KM on a dirt road. We proceeded to follow her with my truck and trailer (big mistake) once we started in I quickly realized the trail was narrow with tight turns. We made it in about 100' from the bus and could not make the last turn. We are now in about 1/2 km or so. Well only option is to back out at this point. I got backed out about half way and could not make a turn so we had to cut a trail to drop the trailer for the time being. I took my winch and put in the receiver of the truck and headed back. There was only 1 more obstacle, an old volvo blocking the path. Well that ended up being an easy task with winch. with the car out of the way we then made it the rest of the way. Now the fun can begin. We actually lucked out with only 1 front break stuck on. I used my drum puller, pulled it off and we were good to go. We installed 4 roller tires to make the rolling easy. After 30 years of sitting in that resting spot(last plated in 89) it was finally going to roll again. Now 1 issue was it has no breaks and we are up on a hill with lots of tight turns. I did not want to tow it because I knew it was going to run into the back of my truck. We got it onto the slope, gave it a big push, I jumped in and it rolled almost all the way back to my trailer. At this point I just decided to tow it out to the road so with Tyler steering we made our way back through the goat path. All in all with all the new scratches on my truck, bent fender on my trailer I am very happy with this bus. It needs inner and outer rockers, both rear jack points, rear corner and passengers front floor. its very complete and only missing the rear bumper. There is another bus there that is very rotted but tons of good parts. There is also some 60s volvos, a morris minor, Ford Anglis(probably spelled wrong) and some old trucks

That is definitely a Canadiana camper. Congratulations ... I think that's one of only two (maybe three) survivors in the world. Your bus just became a lot more valuable.

That takes our dear friend Lind's first bus- the "greenhouse bus" to a whole new height.

I sure would love to be the guy working the hot pressure washer on that bus. I can just imagine the joy of making all that Turkis come alive!

I am now checking for wood ticks. Even though I wasn't there, this photo makes me feel them everywhere. Dammit!

Nice find. A very cool bus with an interesting kit.
