Hello and welcome to Thebusblog!
In April of this year Kyra and I purchased a 1965 GM "New look" bus from a woman in California. We originally found the ad on craigslist where the bus was listed for the absolutely unheard of price of $100. I immediately got in contact with Pastor Dan Elliot who was coordinating the sale. The bus had sat untouched for over 20 years and the wear and tear of Mother Nature was taking its toll. Moss was growing rampantly in all of the window channels and down the side of the vehicle. Although it was showing its age, it was love at first sight.
Here's what the bus looked like when we came across it.
With a little elbow grease and determination it cleaned up well.
