Nick, This is one of the best posts describing your coach, ever. Lots of great information and pictures to drool over.

You need to add what those little bay windows were/are for. ;)

Great job!

Thank You Paul for the GOOD words. We were told the Bay windows is where the driver used to sleep when the owner was inside all comfortable. NOT Positive but sounds almost believable. It is carpeted throughout the bays and interior lighting is intact and the walls are also carpeted. "Who Knows". Could have been an apartment for dwarfs or really short rockstars.  :o or maybe a rolling morgue since their is a rolling pull out tray in there too.. For whatever purpose they used them for, they sure have people stopping to ask what they are for. Kinda of makes this even more of a "One of a Kind"

If you own a bus, you have "mechanical issues."   You'll soon enough become an expert PD-4106 repairman.   

Good luck, JR

Here's our newest bus. Our other ones are skoolies ('58 Chevy, '63 Chevy, '64 GMC). I bought it in Vegas and we drove it back to Texas. It's been to OK and FL, all within it's first 6 weeks with us. I'm loving it so far. So much fun. So blessed to be able to pick it up. Supposedly was PO'd by the Bellamy Brothers.

Detroit Diesel, 4 speed manual with brand new clutch, brand new Dunlops on 24.5 Alcoas, 15KW Onan, 100 gal freshwater, 100 gallon diesel tank, not sure on gray/blackwater but there's only one waste tank. Interior is dated (Southwest/Miami teal/peach color scheme) but in good shape. Lots of to-do items with it, but we're working through it. I'll be posting lots of questions and get to posting more pictures in the future.
