1950's Hanford bus up for sale

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- A 1950's Hanford bus that used to transport workers to the site is now up for sale.

Hanford bought twenty-eight custom GM buses in 1953. They ran for more than twenty years and then were kept aside in case of an emergency evacuation.

The Crehst Museum believes there are only three left with all the parts intact. One is in Tacoma and two are parked in Richland in front of the museum. One of those can now be yours.

"There's very little left of the Hanford engineer's work's artifacts. They've all been dug in and buried and distributed all over the world. This is Hanford. This is where they are. This is where they ran. This where they worked. This is where they were designed to run," says Nick Lowe, bus seller.

The buses have an estimated two million miles on each of them from the constant trips to and from Hanford.

The price tag for the bus is fifteen thousand dollars.
