'56 Ford Coach

I just wanted to share pic of my '56 Ford Coach a bus conversion. Although a Ford, I've got a Chevy 454 with th400 as the power plant.
I used to tow my classic Chevies to car rallies and camp out. It's been parked in my pole barn for almost 10 years but I need to get it back on the road and cruise.

What a beast, regardless if it is a "Cross Bred". I would love to see it motoring down the highway. The inside is really neat, just the bare essentials.
I really like the double pancake air filter, what a good idea, let the thing breathe.
Good luck, and get her rolling.

The rear end is the stock 2 speed and the last time is used it was a drive up to Reno "Hot August Nights" where I towed an 18' flatbed trailer with my 55 Chevy Bel Air on it.
I got, round trip 10 mpg cruised (on flat roads) at 65 mph. It wouldn't take much to get her back on the road... a couple of batteries, fresh gas and just setting aside some time from camping and fishing

Thats so cool. I like the idea of the toilet under the counter. Great way to conserve space.

Interested in buying an Air Stream? I think it is a 60's, double axel rear toilet. Half way decent shape.
