Two issues. Craigslist links go in that forum. Also a price in your ad is required. You are welcome to put pics directly into your ad.

Thanks Tiny. I'll take care of it.

After much deliberation I’ve decided to let my 1959 Chevy chassis and a Carpenter bus body go to the next owner. This bus is in really good shape, especially for being 60 years old this year.
I purchased it in February 2011 and spent the next two years working on it to get it on the road. It runs and drives really good.
> It has the original Chevy 235-6cyl. engine and 4 speed transmission. 89,855 miles on the clock, but the speedometer is not currently working.
> Lights, wipers, heater, signals, etc. are all in working condition.
> It has the hard to find 22.5 wheels, which are powder coated. Tires are in good condition – one is new.
The frame is as solid as a rock – no rust. The body doesn’t look great, but really doesn’t need much work. All windows raise and lower as they should. It has most of the original seats – missing three. I installed original Carpenter bus overhead shelves – which I don’t think you will find anywhere.
I really like this bus, but I don’t drive it much. It’s time for someone else to enjoy it and take it to the next level. Whether you keep it original or have plans to convert it to an RV (which seems to be very popular), you have a very solid start.
Serious inquiries only please. $12,500, now 11,500, 10,950

Bad link, I get a 404 error message. Also you can edit your first post to change/add/delete any links or images. You can also add images directly to your ad rather than depend on a link.

Honestly, if I wasn't already deeply involved in a project. This would be it! I really lust for this.

Thanks for posting!

Thanks Chris.
Had some really nice folks come look at it last weekend and take it for a drive. They own a goat farm and haul their goats around to clear customers pastures. Needless to say, I wasn't extremely disappointed that they decided the bus wasn't going to work for them.

Will do. PM your contact info and I'll pass it on to the new owner, assuming there will be one smile. In all likelihood, seats will be removed.
