Figured id go ahead and start a thread for my newly acquired November of '62 Turkis logo kombi. I rescued this bus out of Covington, GA. The owner was in his 80's and purchased this bus while living in Independence, Kansas from the cleaner company when they shut down in the late 60s. He purchased it exactly how you see it here, no seats, engine or rear bumper. I was shocked to hear he had never driven the bus and that it had been sitting outside for 50 years! Being on the east coast the majority of the time it had been sitting, i was schocked at how well it had held up! I am very excited to get started on this one and get it back on the road! Very Happy

Wowsers! I love it. Great find.

Was it priced at ... less than it would have been in the classifieds?

Cool logo's!
You might want to try TR-3 resin glaze on that paint. It's almost non abrasive, but feeds the paint to a natural sheen.

Like I said on FB that's one awesome Bus!

It's weird how some hold up so well. I pulled my old '64 Laundry logo Panel out of a Mississippi delta town junkyard. Every other split Bus there was TOAST, like no floors, rust all around the roof, etc. Most of the bays were super crusty yet my Panel was really decent. The long rocker was perfect! So strange.
