I had the opportunity to see Gene’s amazing collection with my Dad in Connecticut today. Truly incredible.They use this bullet single cab as a flower pot in the spring and summer! Or holds a Christmas tree in the winter.54 bd deluxe 23 window “smith bus” on the left, 54 bd deluxe 23 window “Milan bus” In the middle, and “THE hornbecker” 52 bd deluxe 23 window bus on the right. And the 43 kdf in the front original motor to the smith bus
this motor 20-0213593 is supposed to be the 3rd oldest bus motor on the registery. Came with the matching transmission.smith family bus history. Used in Europe by the smith family then sent back home to California after the trip.südfunk bus! Always wanted to see this oneRustabusParticipantFebruary 28, 2018 at 5:34 pmPost count: 1898

speechless shit right there… wow…PeteParticipantFebruary 28, 2018 at 6:00 pmPost count: 880
That’s a killer collection. Isn’t one of those BD deluxe’s an unrestored, low-mile dealer-displayed original bus with only a few hundred miles on it? (EDIT – The ’52 “Hornbecker” deluxe is unrestored with only 17k original miles on it).JdawgParticipantFebruary 28, 2018 at 6:14 pmPost count: 447
What I can’t inderstand is why the Royal Mail bus isn’t amongst all those other legit VWs…seems silly that someone with that type of collection wouldn’t be all over it…especially for the asking price.tlambertParticipantFebruary 28, 2018 at 8:36 pmPost count: 300

So someone please shed some light on who Gene is?JdawgParticipantMarch 1, 2018 at 3:59 amPost count: 447mtnbusParticipantMarch 1, 2018 at 7:29 amPost count: 1064

Makes me regret selling this:
Bought it from Norway in 2012, was pretty rusty, but not that bad by today’s standards…
