No floor tiles but the interior seems to be mostly intact , although needing a overhaul . Engine and box are sweet , needs 3 small bits of welding and brake & steering overhaul .
Other than that it's awesome :alien:

Love it. Absolutely love it.
You've got to keep the stripes and that "roadrunner" plate is the coolest interior plate I've ever seen 8)
Please tell me you're going to restore the interior and keep it as is?

Cheers, Lee.

Agree with Empi, one of the coolest buses to land in this country IMO and a fair price. Love this bus!
