Nick:

An exact model?   Unsure ... but I'd say a Crown of some sort.

Looks like a conglomeration of differant buses, maybe a cut up scenic-cruiser on top?

What an odd looking thing.

Hey Nick,

My guess is it's a Sceinic Cruiser on steroids, or one of these but what it is I just don't know.

I believe the creator's name is Larry Clinton, (but, I may be mistaken.)

More like crack.

Alot of work went into that for sure.

I'll have to add this 'creation' to the list of things I'll never understand.

I think it's cool.

Very well done. Right on the edge, but not over. It flows. Not like some hippy skoolie with a couple VWs warts on top.

I'd like to see the interior.

The bus was indeed created by Larry Clinton.  He lives in NH. 

This is one of several buses he owns.  His description is:

The one we're putting the 60 in is a 55 Scenicruiser with a '49 Aerocoach roof and front and back treatment.
We're up to 42' long and 13'6" height on this one.

If someone saw it on the road, maybe he got the Series 60 installed.  I will check with him.

Larry Clinton for sure guy's.

Larry and his custom creation needs to be part of our MAK bus nuts.......

Let's see if we can get him to Arcadia on year.

Awsome job Larry!

Just because I don't understand it doesn't mean I think its junk. It just means I don't understand it.

It's great to have so many different ways of doing things, even if I never understand some of them.

One thing about Larry's creation, I don't think he needs to be too concerned with the cost of replacing the expensive upper windshields on a stock 4501.

Come to think of it, looks like he can make anything he needs.

If he can make it to Arcadia, I'd be one of the first in line to pay to see his work.

That thing is cool! Reminds me of some cross between a Jules Verne-inspired bus-submarine and something Gaudi (Barelona organic architect here's a  link) might have designed.

Any pics of the inside?

Mucho impressed!
