Sweet. Is there something inside or does it have jail bars on all the side windows?

Im not speaking from experience but if she sits on the back seat and uses the D pillar and the panel support on the other side for foot rests..... never mind... I've digressed

Thank you for posting that picture!!!!! That is so cool!!

I collect old oil cans and other advertising art and was blown away by that Dri-Powr photo and the fleet of buses they had. I wonder if any of them are still around?! If you lived in So Cal. and ever went to Car Custom in Azusa, chances are you probably noticed the huge old Dri-Powr neon sign with the genie on the building behind Car Custom. You can see the large structure on the roof of the metal building behind the fleet of buses. That is the old sign.

Perfect logo for the mango:

Wow, the color of the genie is almost a perfect match to the mango! It would look so rad with a Dri-Powr genie logo'd on it! Smile

For the most part yes. It was difficult to read the faded logo during the restoration. Had to do some minor research online to verify. There is a sticker on the rear window that reads I support the Canadian parachute team which helped.

I tried to search, can't believe this one isn't in here yet.

Letterfly a Sign Artist bus.

Unique 1964 VW Microbus Up Price: 20000
Here is an interesting barn find for the aficionado of unique vehicles. I bought this bus in 1974 to use in my emerging career as a signpainter. The 30-year-old paint job is intact with airbrushed logos and hand-lettered signs.
The body is in good shape for the person looking for a good bus to restore. The interior is partially restored. The front seat is in new condition having been reupholstered at Muriel’s Upholstery in Fort Valley, GA several years ago. The engine and all mechanical aspects were in top running condition, having been gone over at Baggerly’s VW in Tampa twenty years ago, prior to being parked in the barn where it has sat ever since.
Window and door rubber molding is original and is understandably cracked and will need to be replaced. The body is clean with little rust and undergear is in great condition.
This is a good candidate for either a restoration project or for a collector who wants a unique vehicle with a colorful past and an interesting old paint job that showcases the hand-lettering trade and airbrush art of an era gone by.
