The Cruiser’s History

CC-history

1963

The bus is built at the Flxible factory in Loudonville, Ohio

1963-1992

The bus is owned by the Lovington, NM school district where it serves as the transportation for the high school’s sports team.

1992

The bus changes owners when it is bought by Ross B., the former high school principal. He only owned it for a short time.

1992-1997

The bus is owned by Joe W. in Azle, TX. Joe turned it into a lounge bus.

1997

The bus is bought by Kim & Dave in Alliance, Ohio. They give the coach an RV interior and use it on and off for many years.

2009

The bus gets another owner… ME!
Since then, I’ve had the interior gutted to make room for a new, streamline design/high tech theme. In 2011, the bus was moved to Fort Worth, TX to get the engine/tranny work done. It will soon move to Nova Scotia where it will get its new interior.

 

Bus-GuttedRestoration

The Cruiser is undergoing a complete restoration, from top to bottom. The original engine was swapped out for a new Cummins ISC with an Allison tranny. The interior, though livable from the start, has been completely gutted to make room for a new, custom living space.

The bus is currently at Paradise Coach Interiors in Coburg, Oregon. The team there is completing the custom living space, wiring, home automation system, etc.

 

When the bus is complete, it will boast some pretty great new features…
