In addition, I found this picture also, scroll down to 1929 Mayflower. http://www.sail1620.org/history/commemorations/78-mayflower-namesakes.html

Maybe someone can contact the Lighter-Than-Air Society for a clearer picture. Photo courtesy Lighter-Than-Air Society Library.

LOOKS GREAT! I'M IN PROCESS OF RESTORING MY 37' "WHITE" YELLOWSTONE TOUR BUS. IT IS A LARGE PROJECT ALSO, BUT WELL WORTH THE EFFORT. GOOD LUCK

As far as I know the guy still has the bus. He would not budge on 25K and I am not comfortable over 18. knowing as little about bus values as I do. I will take a drive on Saturday and see if he still has it.

Bikrbil,

I agree with your approach, and while the vehicle is unique, it would be quite a project to restore and than what would be the value as it would be difficult to transport. I am thinking even 18 is quite high.

I agree with John, even $18K is too high.... It would need to be a driver for that price....

This would be the kind of project you'd have to do for love, not money. Though the bus is very rare, it's finished value may not reflect the restoration costs, so I too think that 25k is too high for the work it needs. Being rare, doesn't automatically make something valuable, in my opinion anyway.

I would love to see you get this bus for a fair price, so that you can restore it, so good luck on your drive!

Sorry for the pun but this is "wicker" cool.

The engine maybe a 320. My '41 engine valve cover is straight across the top. This one seems to bump up in front of the air breather.

The carbs look to be carters.

Durant,

As you seem fairly new to the forum, welcome. As the original poster also has a small number of posts, I suggest you go to first post and click on his name. There you can either send a PM or e-mail, via the forum. Becuase he does not post a lot, I suggest the e-mail as a better means. Ask him if he will share the info, as that seems your only chance at this time. Good luck.

John
