    That's pretty cool. I usually don't see that boxy of a body on anything that new. I would've expexted the front clip to be from the 30s.

    This is the Chicago Blues Bus, spotted sitting behind a new car dealership on
    Chicago's south side.

    Amazing shape - how did it manage to sit out all those years without getting trashed? When was it taken off the road?

    1971 was the last time it was tagged . There were 2 mid 60's International buses on the property that got hauled off to the crusher before I heard the property had changed owners .

    That aluminum body would be perfect for a project I've dreamed of, but realistically won't pull off.

    Got this about a year ago. EVERYTHING is now done. Fresh motor, 100% new electrical, complete brake system, exhaust and interior. Painted it black and added the Riverside Jail Inmate theme. 03152021.jpg

    Spotted this ex-Greyhound '52 GM PD-4103 on FB Marketplace, less than 10 miles away from me. I've been looking at used office trailers to put one behind my house to use as a model car workshop, but this might be sturdier and a lot more fun (and for $3500, just within reach against my better judgement :confused:):

    Wow! That seems like a great deal. FYI, The Six Flags Magic Mountain dancing guy commercials used the same model bus but without the polished aluminum siding.
