Picked up my 65 - 13 window deluxe bus
« on: July 05, 2015, 06:54:18 AM »
I became interested in Split buses about six years ago. A friend of mine had several setting around his hiding place. But I was only drawn to one, a 13 window deluxe that the nose & dash had been replaced on and they didn't use the proper one. So no clock.

At the time I was heavy into bay buses and passed it off as curiosity. But each time I was at his place over the next two years I would end up peering into the windows, looking underneath and giving it the check over. My friend had noticed me checking it out several times and commented about it. I asked his price, which I wasn't interested in once I heard the amount. I was a bay bus man, wasn't really keen on splits at that time. I let a year go by, still making regular conditions investigations on it's well being. Asked about the price, still not interesting to me.
By this time however, I was without a bus to family activities I was wrapped up in. I was feeling the withdraws of not having a bus, so the next two years the communication on the little split became more intense until I wore him down to a price I liked.
A couple of weekends ago I was able to complete the deal and bring it home.















And here it sits at my place. Now I'm making my parts list and preparing to start deep inspection.

Thats a really helpful site, thank you.

Just need to work out which zone is which. We usually use the bus in Menorca, its a treat not to have to get in the car every day. They are much more reliable than the uk buses.
