The tree is super cool- grows over to the nose, turns upwards, up to the rooftop, over the top and rests on one spot before going upwards again. Hoping it stays that way when the bus is rolled back.

There are still free Buses in my town. Unbelievable.

Sat in this spot for some 20 years. Has westy interior in place over deluxe interior. Still smells ok inside, odd for the condition. Has everything! Apron, both bumpers, motor, all the usual missing stuff. Make for middle and rear seat. Happy to have a bus again even if it needs a ton of work.

Today I went back & looked over a Bay Doublecab in a Bone Yard in N.H., I snagged the Gates off it years ago, the roof was about the only good thing left on it. If anyone needs a DC roof, i can give them directions.


Damn, that thing is pretty crusty.

Guys in Europe would pull this outta the mud and restore it!


The only way to get that out would be a Helicopter, there are dozens of cars/trucks in the way in that bone yard. Same place as this one:

Hello,
I'd be looking elsewhere.... Both are complete rust buckets. IMHO
Neither, show the underside: for a reason... Your money would run out quicker than your desire to finish(if, possible).
But, it's your money and time....

First, this isn't really the topic for your questions, this thread is about what you found and brought home, usually without the help of the interewebs. I am not trying to admonish you, just trying to steer you in the right direction.

Now, for the buses. You are in Minnesota, and what you will find within driving distance is likely better than that first ad. Don't bother with it. DO NOT buy that bus and ship it. It is barely savable, and worth less than half the asking price. It would be best used as a parts donor for the second bus, or another dry shell.

Second bus is not worth the asking price. It will be a shell without a title.

Lastly, you need to proofread your posts, before you hit "submit". The last paragraph makes very little sense at all.

Picked my old ‘72 from its “resting” spot down in Georgia. After passing on a few other options, decided it was the best candidate for some work and time. It was a spot that a friend has along the Hudson River. So, it has been named...Hudson.


This pic was a few years ago. It had been sitting for about 25 years.

We pulled it out of the woods a couple years ago to get it away from the growing trees and to let the sun dry it out.

Here he is all loaded up in the trailer for the 1000 mile trip north to NH.

I think the hightop bus needs some jalousie windows, but yes lots of parts I will likely sell out of this bus. Had a pair of low back type 3 seats in there, and an old Oval window pedal assembly for my 53 beetle, and a bunch brake drums & & &.......

Later rims and lots of Jalousie windows? Looks like a bay with some cool stuff added. Those Westfalia windows alone will get you moving towards a black ledger on the purchase of that bus for sure. Cool
