They could prolly sell a few to folks in Nunavut and Yellowknife who have the cash after the astronomical grocery bills...


Legit, for $50k they could definitely sell in the outdoor adventure market.  Prolly not thousands, but I'd bet on hundreds anyway. Rich rednecks will blow cash on anything.

Buses in the USSR, prototypes and models in production:


- NAMI-0159, 1972. Driver sits on the second floor. 3 axis, V8 engine



- YaTB-3, 1938-39, about ten double-decked trolley-buses were made. YaTB-3 were a copy of English Electric, the buses were equipped with 75kW engines. They finally disappeared from Moscow roads in 1948, becase they were hard to drive.



- LIII bus with 3 axis (last one is non-drive axis).



- The single giant YAA-2, made in Leningrad.



- ZIS-8 with a passenger trailer being tested in Moscow



- ZIL-158 with 2PN-4 trailer produced by the Moscow factory "Aremkuz"



- PAZ-671A with trailer PAZ-750 (Prototype)



- Passenger road train built on the chassis of LAZ-695M



- Trolleybus TS-1, made in Moscow.



- Unknown model of LiAZ bus during tests



- ZIS-16 with a gas generator



- If you think that Soviet buses were boring - you will be somewhat right, but not in this case - A ten-seat (the remaining space was occupied by equipment) bus based on ZIL-127 with gas turbine Turbo-NAMI-053 (in the image below) was made in 1959. That wonder bus with its 360 hp could speed up to 160 km/h!



- How about "a cabrio-bus"?




- Buses based on PAZ-651 were made in Sochi for a long time.



- Auto-club "Kuban-G4K". What is Auto-club? A self-propelled cinema!


Some could even accomodate a club, a library, a shop and even a hairdressing salon!


- APP-66 all-wheels drive bus. In the country where the term "road" always had a controversial meaning, could not get along without all-wheel drive buses. They were in high demand by the military, primarily.
