lower outer valance amongst other differences (oh and because only an idiot would cut up that 51' bus and not repair it and I don't think you are one Laughing ) Wink Very Happy

oh, nice score on the 51' & good luck with the prototype project Very Happy

What I was thinking.

Ben's a bus man. I know he likes to modify stuff but I don't think he'd scrap a perfectly restorable 51. Besides, I get the impression he appreciates a good joke. Wink

No knowing barndoor guy would ever cut that up today. But more obvious, anyone who did would NEVER post it up on thesamba. That's like signing your own death warrant #2gunfire #Sniper #2gunfire Laughing Laughing
