Deluxe Sunroof Bay. Low Light Cross Over. I would not have known that two years ago. I believe it is a cross over because of the shape of the air intakes at the back. The vents are not half moon shape but squared off.

Spot on! Yes, it's a 72. Another sign is the raised lip over the front wheel arch. :hangloose:

I can't believe it even has the sun visors in it!

Fig, maybe some of you new buses could follow suite, modern art is very expensive.
