My daughter spotted this bus in a nearby yard this spring. (my eyes aren't what they used to)

I plan on contacting the owner to see if it's something he wants to sell, or maybe just to let us look at it... but from this terrible picture, can anyone tell me maybe the year range? It looks like a split with a camper... and a spare on the front.

Most likely rusted through, but you never know.

This was the best picture I could get as it's tucked pretty tight back off the main road behind some buildings.

Thanks!

I know it's terrible.. lol.. but if you knew how far it was you'd say "pretty good pic!" haha..

I don't feel comfortable just going onto people's property to get a closer look.

I think Bay is correct... the pop top might just be accumulation of snow.
When you get a better pic... inquiring minds want to know Wink

Looks like a 1951 23-window with safaris.

Here's the original, un-zoomed picture

^^^ It's in Mexico?

I think it's looks like a Bay Window too as I don't see a blurry front windshield divider

It looks more like a Bay Camper with a poptop when it's not blown up so huge. Smile
