THIS BUS RIDES BEAUTIFULLY
-----
NO Mexican or Brazilian parts on this bus
Inside and out is EXACTLY how it was in 1972. We have not made any attempts to "upgrade" it's integrity.
Stain on rear seat
Sunburn on center divider
Ignition key is fussy
General wear in keeping with a 50 year old car -- overall +++VERY GOOD+++ Condition
