While searching for converted coaches I ran across a Vancouver BC Craigslist ad for a 1967 Western Flyer 6cyl Detroit with a Fuller 10 speed.
No price or interior photos just a mention of over $65,000 spent and that it needed a paint job.
I have never seen a Western Flyer listed for sale or mentioned in the forums. Is there a reason why these coaches are not popular. Just curious in case another one comes up with a decent price listed.  Thanks.

Yes that is the ad. I thought it looked like an MCI but then the only photos I have seen of Western Flyer Coaches were a little older than this one an looked a little more rounded off in the corners. Strange.
