One of my favorite buses. Cream of the crop. Barndoors are badass. Wish I had one. Maybe someday. For now I got my bay. \:D/ :-&

How about headlights? Would a Canadian barndoor have fluted euro lights, or sealed beam u.s. style?



Can say that again homie! :-" but it a walk in the park for you nutbars =D> This a 54 right? What month? I wanna say euro but not 100% late 54's and 55 type 1's got sealed beams to meet safety standards so I don't see why buses wouldn't follow suit? We used fluted euros in Scarface....they just way more baller! :-$

Hell yeah, Kelly had some nice parts stashed. I even found NOS Greaka bolts to install the pod with. Jones had a NOS semaphore switch and OG starter button that I rebuilt.

I placed an order with WW for a fuse block and some other small things. Still looking for a few parts:

- OG nose emblem. Original barndoor, or I can modify a 55-60 4 post.
- Driver's outer door handle. I think I have one at home, I will check this weekend.
- decklid brake light, red lense and chrome bezel (we already have the bulb holder/reflector)
- Semaphore lenses - light covers
- reflectors
- "butterfly" door sliding glass latches. I have a request in with Ricardo-split parts unlimited in Argentina for about a year now.

54-56 type 2(Wolfsburg bus) North American spec sealed beam headlights. The rarest of them all? Note large bulb holder, rocker linkage, and weird bezel retainer springs.
