Who'd have thought that a wet and cold March day would be a "nice day for a drive" Cool

So I've recently moved to Norway from the UK and like most, if not all new folk here, I did a trip to Sweden to stock up on food and booze. As a tourist/barndoor fanboy, it was quite exciting for me to drive past this sign for the first time.

Yeah the dash and roof over hang are the main give away. It looks like late 50's. Still a very desirable bus! They would make a great team together

Hi all! Sorry I've been so slack on here lately. Life has taken over I'm afraid. Anyway the bus is inspected and registered with lots more little jobs completed, so it now has new number plates on Very Happy but the "really great gearbox" I bought keeps popping out of 4th so we're dealing with that right now. I will get more photos up soon I promise!

As for the Tocksfors single cab Gruvborg .... wow that's seen better days but yes of course I'd be up for another project. I am supposed to be in Sweden with a van and trailer in about 6 weeks so PM me some details and i'd love to scrape those remains into he back of the van. It's a big job but that's what I enjoy the most! How great would they look together Wink I've sent you a PM dude! Thanks for the photos!

Say - are you using copper tubing for the brakes?


likely Nickel-Copper-Iron Alloy, called Cunifer and NiCopp



Agreed. Not only have I really enjoyed seeing this bus reincarnated, I have also learned about bendable copper-nickel brake tubes and also researched and learned about "greenlaning" in UK. I want to do that that next time I visit. This BD split certainly looks to be up for the task!
