775 Restoration Update #2

775's restoration is progressing well. Some unplanned work was needed but it was not overly surprising to us given the age of the bus. As this is AMCAP's first dealing with restoration planning, we've learned our original timetable for 775's restoration didn't allow for unforeseen problems that developed as well as locating some of the parts needed for a bus over 50 years old.

Overall, 775 held up very well over the years. Much of the earlier restoration by PAT in 1974 is still holding up well. Considering that most restorations are babied after all the work that was put into restoring the vehicle, 775 frequently saw hard revenue service for several years after its original 1974 restoration.

More updates on 775's progress will follow.

This is the front end of 775 after removing the original metal.

Rear shot of 775. New lower rear engine panels were fabricated to replace the beat up original panels. The upper engine doors are still in good shape.

Work progresses on the rear. The license plate holder has been installed and work is progressing on repairing rust damage to the upper portion of the body.

Another angle of the rear.

A new stepwell backing plate was installed to replace the original and badly rotted plate.

We once again thank Gene Evans Jr. and  John Rubinich for all the hard work and effort they are placing into 775's restoration.
