Picked up this Sealing Wax Red Double Cab this week. It's complete with the original motor, seats, and all the OG glass. The first owner had it for 10 years from 61 to 71 then the next owner drove it until the motor seized in 91 where it has been sitting in a field until last week. It's an original Lucksinger dealership bus out of San Luis Obispo and still has the dealership plates. It was built 1/14/61 with a UF import destination. It will be a cool one to get on the road.

Thank you guys yes I just sent off my 57 Single Cab to start working on this one. I want to keep as much of the original SWR as possible and blend it in where it needs metal repair.

Since those gate hooks are part of the bus's history, I'd definitely keep them and rock a tarp on that bad boy!
