Where are the pictures of the other bus in your Bus hunt? How about a few details on how you found them etc?

You get what you see says the ad. Looks like for $7000 you get the leaves that are hiding the floor. Hard to see what you get!

Not everyday you have someone tell you they know of 2 single cabs in a barn and they end up being 2 double cabs! Spent the last 2 days getting these guys dug out of hibernation. The 63 was parked in 81 and the 66 was parked in 77. Old owner definitely squeezed them in there.

58euro, yes, that owner sure did squeeze them in. How difficult was it to extricate? Good for you and good for all of us to see that the barn finds are still out there. Applause Applause Applause

Super cool find! Odd that the '63 has the double electrical inlet or outlet fixture above the left taillight. I wonder what that is all about? Great find, did you buy them both? Tell us more about this adventure! ...and congratulations!
