It had been involved in a fire before i bought it, fortunatly only superficial damage occoured. This bus definatly has character! the roof is a little dented but the gutters are absolutly mint and has no rust at all, very very very solid bus and the only body filler in it is where the new panels are blended.
The only thing left to do is paint it, if shiney buses are your thing if not blend in the og paint/ primer with green and leave it ratty/burnt, use a little anchor wax once a year and it wont rust!...
There are a couple of small jobs that could do with taking care of, there is a shuddering from the o/s/r brake when applied hard, the handbrake needs sorting and i have the panels to repair the bottoms of the cargo doors which are a little tatty at the bottoms, other than that all the hard work has been done....
ive probably done less than a thousand miles since ive owned it!.. This is one of those genuinly regrettable sales..
