Scored a '59 Mango Walkthru that a friend found in a warehouse. It has some rust but is nearly complete with full interior and fairly straight. Here is a teaser picture.

Love the OG paint and would like to have the rot replaced and paint blended. Anyone have any recommendations on a shop to do that type of work?

The 36hp looks to be in decent shape.... but I think it would be more fun with a chumbucket heart transplant. Maybe a porsche type shroud/fan would be cool.

More to come.......

That is one beautiful bus!

Wow.... a walk-thru bullet bus in Mango.... love that OG carmel interior.

That has to be a top-10 bus in any split-window fanatic's list.... including mine! :thumbs: 8-)
