I was wondering how many third brake light buses are still out there.

That is my former 57 standard that I sold almost exactly one year ago. I think I sent those plates with the new owner. They had stickers from 1971 in place, the last year that bus had been registered.

Nope. Sold it and the front (pair of bice) long ago. I really despise those things on anything but a truck. That bus had original paint PG/SG bumpers when it left my driveway for the last time.

Agreed. The rear looks OK, and functions well. The front is another story.

A question for the OP, were you looking for buses with brakelight decklids, or buses with brakelight decklids that also run a later turn signal switch or other mod to allow three brakelights? That mod is a good one, and one that I plan to utilize on my 57 kombi in the near future, just need to find that thread again as I did not bookmark it.
