A Phantom (unknown fleet number, likely Ex-OCTA) that was just received from Transit Sales International was used for parts to restore 803.|

It sported battleship graphics airbrushed onto the sides, added a taped commercial tourism announcement system, and was used as a special shuttle from the Bremerton Ferry Terminal out to the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard for guests to visit the battleship Missouri in it's last days in layup before being shipped off to Hawaii.|
