After deciding to sell everything and live on the road for a bit, a mate and i did a deal for this bus>>
Thanks to the wealth of information on this site (and not anywhere else on the net!) we found out its '67-'69 Ansair bodied GM DSPA5019.
Heres the fun part, it needs a fair bit of work.... and parts :/
Mechanically it seems fine, starts, runs, moves, brakes work but the rear needs to dialed in,
the the clutch seems to be loosing fluid, and the power assisted steering hasnt been tested.
But our windscreen.... lovely they decided to make the surround panel out of steel...
Some serious cancer the whole way around the surround, the 2 lower screens are perspex and have turned opaque over time, and all 6 peices have to come out for some serious welding.
I doubt we will find a replacement.
So, anyone know of anyone parting one out? ^_^
or are we up the proverbial creek with the same for a paddle?
i have 2 extremely talented boiler makers, 2 diesel mechs and a sparky up the sleeve, and i haven't found a motor i cant massage into life yet.
But, this will be a learning curve from the 60s/70s/80s cars i normally play with.
Also, anyone know where the body number may be? As I, and some on this site would like to know, what its history was.
Theres one on the fire wall which i have to scrub to read, and i found one on the front axle/cross member.
heres some flics, enjoy:
