Well, we saved another bus today. Very Happy We actually found it at a swap meet. The people had a pic of it on a board with several other cars. We asked about it and got their info and we finally managed to go look at it today.

My husband calls it "Bobby's Bus" because he thinks it is his. Everyone knows that all the buses are mine. Very Happy LOL Anyway, here are some pics.



















Some of the stuff that was inside it.



I didn't notice this till we got home. It doesn't have wing windows.



It's missing the passenger side glass and rubber. Anyone know where to find non wing window glass and rubber??

As you can see it is kind of on the rough side, has rust here and there. Nothing that can't be fixed though. It's defenitly not an over night project though.

It's a 69 delivery van and according to the m plate is supposed to have dark beige leatherette interior. The paint code say's "primered".

Here are some of the other codes that came up. Looks like it had an upper partition at one time, if I'm reading that right.

"M-CODE Description Concerned models From chassis number To chassis number
055 Steering lock (1969) 211-274
2x9 300 000
500 Full width metal (half-height) partition between cabin and load compartment with 2-seater passenger seat 211-244
510 Partition upper between cab and load compartment (for vehicles with M 500 only) 211-216"

I'll be cleaning it out some more tomorrow and will take more pics. Very Happy

I'd rock an early bay panel. You don't see them very often.

Did some cleaning today.



Flintstone bus! Very Happy





















Pile of garbage out of it!



Look, it goes straight now! LOL



I will finish getting the loose garbage out of it tomorrow and then hose it out. This weekend we will hit it with the pressure washer. Then we can start looking at what we want to tackle first.

Put the bus up on the lift tonight to remove the tranny and axles. Did a little looking around while it's up there. This seems to be the worst of the rust.

Driver side bumper/step bolts


Front cross bar section.




Front jack areas




Front passenger corner





Lots of bondo.


We will pressure wash it Sat. and see what is left after that. LOL

Today was bath day! LOL






I sprayed some Easy Off on the side to see if we could find any logos on the bus under all that paint.




All we found was what our friend wrote on the side. LOL






Then they did the famous football trick on the front.




It's hard to see in the camera view, but a lot of the dent came out.




Did this for fun. LOL




Look at the stars!



Above is the bottom of the bus. Below is from looking into the engine compartment. LOL




Yah we put a light inside and turned off the garage lights. That's how many holes are in the floor. LOL




Lot's of work ahead. Very Happy
