That's Josephine just after I picked her up in Minnesota. She's a beaut! A 1954 Flxible Visicoach RV conversion. As far as I can tell I'm the third owner. She never was a passenger bus.At first she was a lab for a utility company in Conneticut and then sold to the family I got her from.They finished up the conversion. She's a blast and gets the attention wherever she goes but I didn't realize she would become a full time job! I wouldn't have it any other way!

This is my bus. She hasn't yet been named. She's a 1995 International 3800 with a DT466 engine and probably Allinson transmission.

Picked her up a couple of weeks ago - she had a rodent infestation at some point. A previous owner turned her into a hunting lodge and welded a ludicrous back shelf on her.

Full details of my conversion process are at www.schoolbushome.blogspot.com and it is my intention to turn her into a 24x365 livable motor home.



And only 95K miles on her too. Probably genuine because the 55mph governor is still in place!

I am posting this for my father who loves buses. He has every Bus Conversion magazine ever published.

This is his bus:

1964 - PD4106

6v92t w/Jakes
n95 injectors
v730
Spring Brakes
1:1 gearbox w/Sheppard Power Steering
Polyurethane bushings
11r24.5 on Alcoa wheels

This bus accelerates and handles like you would not believe. I call it the 4106 dream package.

I am looking for better pics, but this will do for now.

Hi all. I'm new to the bus thing but I've been owning and driving 18-wheelers since I was 18, so I'm no stranger to large vehicles. Been looking for an RV for awhile for family use and also for a tour bus for my band and was on the fence between a sticks and staples RV or a bus, but I was leaning towards a bus because my mechanical knowledge of big trucks lends itself better to a bus. Looked for awhile before I found one that had everything I was looking for but I found it. This is a picture of me and the band with my oddball bus on its maiden voyage. It's a 1972 Gillig DT16. Originally a 335 Small Cam Cummins and a 5 spd but now has a 350 Small Cam with a 10 spd. Not sure what it was in it's original incarnation but pretty sure it was converted in about 1978. Needs some updating and freshening up but all in all it's solid. Not much info on the net about Gilligs so if anyone has anything to share, go for it. Sorry for rambling and thanks for having me. I'll try to get some more pics of the bus this weekend if the weather improves.

Tcolley

Read your handle and almost thought it read Trolley. I guess the eyes are going now, wonder what is next!

Just wanted to say welcome aboard. There are a lot of great people on this site. Never met a busnut I did not like. Good luck with your Gillig and the updates you need to do.

Hi Tcolley, welcome.
