Impress with Ventoniemi’s museum coach “Siipi-Wiima”, from 1961. Our fully restored museum coach is well-suited for many types of charter travel, offering a journey to the past for those longing for nostalgia.
The vehicle was originally completed at the factory of Oy Uusi Autokoriteollisuus Ab in Helsinki in 1961. The vehicle was in operation until 1978, when it was retired from use. Ventoniemi Oy had the vehicle restored in 2007–2008. The restoration process included replacing the bottom part of the frame, the floors and side plating, and polishing up the interior. Furthermore, the bus was painted according to Väinö Ventoniemi’s colour scheme from the 1960s.
