Ah. So a 73 it is, no westy interior.

Let's assume that you have a 73 sunroof shell with another interior. The interior swap out should be simple, didn't they have the mounts for "all" interiors" like mine does?

I'm asking so I don't immediately rule out ones that I come across that aren't an exact match - looking for the lowest common denominator.

I think any 7 passenger shell will do.

Have you a place to store the bus until you can salvage needed parts or are you going to have it brought home?

I have temporary storage. At some point however I am going to have to synchronize an operating theatre. As of right now, I couldn't tell you anything except thanks to the folks who have been helping me.

Either place if needed, I can offer free storage if it becomes a long term deal.

I love that the 'kink' just below the driver side headlight is the same, yet the driver has...uh....patina'd?..
So it all started when I wanted to get better gas mileage....

I am sure that you will have a large supporting cast once Road Warrior is ready to be re-incarnated. Just let us know when and where :cheers:

Man those pics are hard to look at. If she would have hit alittle more to the passengers side the outcome would have been alot different. Someone was with you Colin. I'm glad you are ok.

Holy Smokes!

Colin, glad to hear that you came out of this with out too much bodily damage. Wish I could same the same for the bus. Like many on here I have fond memories of you and the Road Warrior rolling into my driveway for a day of fun. Keep yer head up. I'm sure you will find another bus and resume your delivery of bus knowledge.

Hey Neal,
It has been a while. My mind still expects to see the bus when I walk out in the morning, sitting there, imperturbably awaiting another day of travelling around this beautiful country.
How's yours?
