Deluxe question
karmannghia60 - August 14th, 2017 at 01:23 PM

Can a '58 deluxe bus be a genuine 23 windows?
The vin# is 377xxx so (according to what I googled) should be a 1959
The bus paperwork shows its an Aug 1958
I couldn't find the vin# to confirm the TYP

So I have 2 questions:
1) how do I confirm its a genuine Deluxe bus?
2) how do I confirm if its a genuine 21 or 23 windows?

Its 23 now

The VIN number does not relate to 13, 15, 21 or 23 windows its just a number

have a look at the model number on the tag

There certainly are 23 windowed 58 and 59 buses. no 21 windowed ones though. As Dave said you need the tag and M codes. Mitch

Use the m-code decoder, google it and key in the numbers as you see and it'll decode for you the specs.
