What This Guy Did With A Bus From 1948 Is Unbelievable. Look Inside – I WANT ONE!

In May 2012, freelance Surf-craft builder Ryan Lovelace met a new love in the
form an old Chevy bus from 1948. He named her Ophelia.
His blog post about the day he bought her says it all:
Late May 2012 – The day I bought Ophelia.  The 1948 Chevy bus I found 
 on craigslist that was described as, “Runs, Drives, Stops, Registered.”
That was all I had to know.
Since then, Ryan has worked tirelessly to refurbish Ophelia and has successfully
turned her into his new rolling home

As part of the refurbishment, Ryan added a bedroom
 pad to the top of the bus.

Ryan’s inspiration for redesigning Ophelia was a DIY bus
 from a 1979 book called Rolling Homes.

Wow. The finished interior of Ophelia looks amazing.
He also added a small antique stove.

That’s it… I’m going to start looking on Craigslist for a 1948 bus of my own.
