here's another cool old bdsc found on thesamba.com posted by kintail with the description...

Quote
This '53 Single Cab was owned by John Eschenlohr, VW Canada National Parts Manager. John was there from VW Canada's official start in the late '52 and into the '60s. There is an early Eberspacher gas heater installed under the front seat and a couple of years ago I came across a VW Canada workshop bulletin of the same gas heater personally signed by Mr. Eschenlohr. This original bulletin had to go to Craig Allen of Toronto, who has since completely restored the vehicle, to complete the circle.

here is one i found today that i'm really digging...

1971, vancouver, greyhound bus station at the corner of cambie & dunsmuir. photo by richard watson.

if we zoom in a bit (second pic) we see that that sweet 21 window deluxe has the same logos as the big buses! probably used as a shuttle or maybe for the mystery trips every sunday!! it also appears to be a one colour deluxe...possibly the rare lotus white top & bottom from the factory? or was it painted to match the top colour of the big buses? either way...there is a lot going on in this pic, and thats a cool bus & a cool slice of local history :cool:

My late Father-in-law was a driver of those 21 windows. He convinced Pacific Stageline to purchase a few to do city tours.
