Monk is very cool, we all have something we are afraid of, mine is spiders stemming from a black widow bite when I was a child. Monk just has all the phobias.

Drivers floor is made of plywood, not mild steel, and with the leaky 55 year old windows, prone to leak.

Battery box is aluminum and considering that it is also most likely 55+/- years, decades of battery acid do take their toll.

Without major frame off restoration, will a Eagle even last 55 years?

My post on condition was a fair warning to prospective bidders...who may not know that the photos are 3 years old etc...

Any prospective buyers of classic buses are free to contact me, I know of Alot that are in fine shape....without major "restorations"

DKHERSH>>>>  Don;t kick too much or you won't have any structure left.
