...on a shortened 1996 Caprice chassis.

Only $24k at Volo Auto Museum.

Unfortunately, out of 53 photos, not one shows how the LT1 fits in there. No mention of mileage on the drivetrain, either Very Happy.

Ha, that's pretty cool actually. I don't think I could drive that though, that is the weirdest driving position ever! Seems like a lot of wasted space ahead of the driver. I'm guessing the original chassis setup was forward control or something.

Looks like 9c1 Caprice seats in there? You'd think they'd spend a dozen dollars and spring for new pedal pads and a better turn signal stalk. Smile

That's basically the original drivers position, but they were meant to be stand-up drive.

Especially since it's the only hint at the mileage on the drivetrain Very Happy.

^I wonder if that picture is at Seashore in Maine.  That's an MBTA AM General trackless trolley in the background, and only a few were saved.  A ton of them were dumped at Billerica Shops and then scrapped, after being relentlessly vandalized.

That reminds me, sometime we should do a meet at Seashore sometime! That's a decent sized parking lot, we can ride on the old train (whatever they have in use), and there's a lot to see...maybe do a run from there to the beach or whatever afterward. Place is incredible.

Yup; that's from Transit Weekend at Seashore over Columbus Day weekend Very Happy.

They have three of those tracklesses (Flyers, not AM Generals), and there's another at the Shore Line Trolley Museum in Branford, CT.  It would be a great place for a meet, and they have group rates.

Did AM General make any of them? I must get them confused because I'm pretty sure some of the regular bus versions were related, the Flyers and AM Generals. I have some MBTA plates from Billerica Shops actually, lol.

I'd totally be down for Seashore. Seasons kinda over now I guess but it's something to think about, we might be the only people on the forum who've been to that place. I want to ride on the old streetcar that used to go up by where Route 93 is today through the Fells. I have pictures of it floating around, forget the one I actually rode on that was out for the day on their track setup. I went all through the "off limits" section out back as well.
