I Bought This Old Trailways Coach On Ebay The Week Of My B-Day. Just Before X-Mas. I Felt The Price Was Right And I Figured I Could Be Back Before Christmas Eve.

I Left On Monday Afternoon For Queen Creek Arizona.(12/21/09) Got Home To Denver On The Evening Of (12/23/09) Besides The Worst Weather Known To Man All Went As Planned. The Bus Ran GREAT !!

My Plans Are To Restore This Eagle To Its Former Trailways Glory. Well Mostly.... I Want To Use This Eagle For Selling Vintage Auto Related Parts And Literature At Swap Meets Around The Country.

Removing The Seats Will Be Probably First..

Image

But Thats All I Want To Remove. JUST The Seats..PERIOD.
I Would Like To Maybe Replace The Seats Someday. I Want To Leave The Bus All Original. (Inside & Out) The Inside Is VERY Original And I Like That About This Bus. The Light On The Bathroom Wall Even Still Works (Rest Room In Use) When The Door Is Locked From The Inside. Just Little Things Like That Are Soooo...COOL & Then Theres The......
Drinking Intoxicants And Use Of Drugs On Coach Is Prohibited Sign. The Eagle Looks Like It Was Just Pulled From Service. !!

CLOCK ?? WOW...Check Out This Eagle CLOCK.!!! I LOVE IT

You Can Tell I Like The Clock..Huh

So ....As I Travel The Country Selling Car Stuff I Want To Also Show Off The Bus.... And Also Display My TRAILWAYS Memorabilia.

That is one cool ride! :mrgreen:

If the pink tinted windows are not covered with film, I have four that I pulled out. The frames are not black, aluminum. You can have them if you want. Let me know.

Take a close look at the front window, the tint is heaviest at the top. I'll bet yours are covered on the inside with film, who knows. You should be able to tell just looking at them from the inside.

Next time you are in Abilene, feel free to load them up! ;) Otherwise they go to the bus parts graveyard in the sky! :cry:
