Bob's '57 Bus

My January 1957 standard bus served for 27 years as an engine parts storage shed in a junkyard before I saw the "diamond in the rough" and began to revive "Gertie" and give her back her dignity. Six weeks of diligent paint stripping to bring back the original factory palm green/sand green paint, hunting many, many correct missing parts, and making the bus road worthy with a 1600 single port engine (12v), new dual-circuit German brakes, '67 trans with original small nut RGB's, and a set of 50's crow's foot rims, has all combined to bring Gertie back to life. Gertie is amazing to drive! p>
