Let's see those stock height buses, shiny, rusty, holey, whatever you've got as long as its stock height, thanks for the excellent choice of theme agpul.

As usual I'll keep it open until the 24th, then run the poll for 7 days.

Cracking theme already, but do stock buses come in any other colour than green?

Who's policing this 'stock' definition?

Scotty's scatter cushions aren't stock, there's non-period stuff all over everyone's roof rack and Graham's suspension has been RAISED of all things!

If we're being really picky none of those tatty old Devon interiors came from a VW factory either.

What a shambles ;)

Even Knori has been to the Conversuon house....

The standard Zeigler Fire truck had the factory Fire truck mcodes for Fire truck spec, mud and snow tyres and laminated windscreen... and a new VIN code plate saying increased load rating. (I actually have the original and one fitted with the higher axke loads!) and the suspension was actually raised 2"..

So clymoj is very observant.

I'll throw Errol in at the risk of 'nill points'.

Stock height 1956 dove blue single cab. US spec, spent all its life in California. Last US owner was a VW garage in Campbell California, then to BBT in Belgium, then to me.



Errol is a truck and he gets used as a truck.

Sometimes he takes things away...

Image

...and sometimes he brings them back...

Image

Image



It's not luxury travel...

Image

But he has come a long way.



From California...

Image

To Belgium...

Image

And home...

Image

This is Errol.

Well I've never had a stock bus before so best put fergy into the mix, also there's not enough rust above ! Extensive Resto over the winter, not got many photos yet but here's a few
