My '60 23 Window Deluxe

Post by OxonPhil » Wed Oct 31, 2007 1:29 pm

Just thought I'd share some pics with you of my new project that has arrived into the UK this weekend.

Will start the resto after the wedding.........



And I'm really please that the van fits into the garage stock height (as the last bus was lowered................I was a bit concerned 8O )

Althought the first job will be to SLAM it :roll:

Chop it, paint it pink and put suicide doors on it. Some nice flared arches would look good too.

I would weld up those funny skylights in the top of the roof as well :wink:

Seriously... a very nice bus. I think everyone on here agrees
