For the last decade or so the Bus had been used as additional storage for the woman and her husband who owned it. All of the seats had been previously removed but much of the original interior remained intact.
Here's what the interior of the bus looks like looking back towards the rear.
It really is amazing how much space there is inside. The passenger side retains its original hand rail while the drivers side has been replaced with a luggage rack.
This bus is a model TDM-5303. 'T' designates that the bus is a transit model with a 'M' manual transmission, and a 'D' diesel engine.
The windows of the bus had been smoked with blue paint so you couldn't see inside. Spiders covered most of the interior of the bus and took multiple attempts to completely get rid of. All in all we had a fairly solid starting point for our project.
