This 1966 Crown Coach was one of 106 constructed for use as Highway Post Office buses. This unit was one of two delivered to Inter City Transit Co. in North Little Rock, AR in late 1966. 206 delivered mail along a route between Houston and Corpus Christi, TX under contract to the US Postal Service.
Sometime after its retirement and auction, Campbell, CA bus company owner Fred Wagener purchased it and converted it into a recreational vehicle. The Wageners added a motorized pull-down rear end that doubles as a ramp or a deck.
Fred Wagener’s son, Mark Wagener, donated this bus to the Pacific Bus Museum in October 2021.
What makes this bus so special is its history of serving as a Highway Post Office.
