    Wonderful 1955 Flxible VL100 VistaLiner. This is such a great bus. Same model that Elvis used for his tour bus. It really breaks my heart to have to part with it, but it has manual transmission and no power steering, and thus my wife can't/won't drive it, so I bought a more modern replacement, sadly. Otherwise, I'd be buried in it for sure. I suppose I could keep both this one and the new one, but I don't want to park this fellow outside. It's been an indoor bus since I bought it, and I think it was stored inside before as well. I bought the bus from a man who was heavily into Flxibles. He replaced the Torsilastic suspension just before I bought it. This was an Interstate bus converted some years back. It is powered by a ferocious Detroit Diesel 6-71 inline 2 cycle--the original "screaming Jimmy." The motor runs flawlessly. It starts immediately and doesn't hesitate at all. It makes air immediately. I had a major service on it last spring and the mechanic tells me that the motor and tranny look to be in great shape. The transmission is a 4 speed Spicer manual. Air brakes were gone through last year as well. It starts, stops, points and drives like it's supposed to. I used this as my support vehicle for the Great Race last year (cross-country vintage car race) and it was a big hit wherever it went, especially when it was pulling my 1931 Rolls Royce shooting brake race car behind it. Pretty hilarious pair, actually, and I put 6000 problem-free miles on it last summer. The conversion is nicely done, with really cool blond woodwork throughout. It has 80 gallon fresh/100 gallon black water tanks. 2 rooftop air conditioners, although the one in back needs to be replaced (oops -- i didn't have the garage door the whole way open when I started to back out). Newer Honda 4K water cooled generator (gasoline) that works great. Heat is by propane furnace in the front. 2-20 gallon propane tanks in the belly. Windscreens were replaced about 3 years ago. Newer radial tires, with great tread all around. Massive amounts of storage in the belly underneath the bus. Has 50 amp shore hookup and separate house/coach batteries with a charger. No inverter; I just switch the fuse box from shore to the generator when I need 110 power or to run the a/c units. This is really such a nice old bus, that I'd prefer that the buyer have inside storage for it
