    Solid shell only, some rust, cargo floor cut out? Y??
    Not sure what too do , two many $$$ for me to spend.

    Hi B-split-A
    welcome to the KC.
    Your bus by my calculations was built between May and June 1961.
    It should have small front indicators and twin small rear tail lights ( two small lights on top of each other, each side)
    more than likely The cargo floor would have been removed because it was rusty. most split busses will need the complete bottom 6" replaced, all the repair panels are available locally.
    good luck

    Is that the engine number or chassis number? If it's the chassis number you should have a 1958 bus with semaphores and ribbed bumpers. My '58 is chassis number is 390536!!! They've gotta be brothers!
