1970 Bus "Velvet Leon Jones"

Post by drvr8 on Fri Jul 24, 2015 6:55 pm

I realize that Bryce did a build thread on this one when he had it... but I decided to start a new one, if for no other reason, so that I can track and see what I have done, should have done, or not done to the bus. This is a pretty solid bus, but my bride and I have big plans for Velvet. The name change came due to the fact that the original color is Velvet Green, and we plan to take it back to that, or close to it. So here is where we are starting from:

Well thanks to Brian and Bryce, Velvet Jones is at his new temporary home. Got it loaded on the trailer and drove it to Brian's house this morning. Many thanks to both Brian and Bryce for all their help. And except for Brian trying to throw the bus off the trailer leaving Bryce's driveway, it all went fairly smoothly.











And the ONLY way a redneck should move a non running bus... pull it with the lawn mower!
