Wow. That's not too bad. There's a member on here who is restoring an old school bus. That one looks pretty good actually. I would LOVE to see somebody restore one of those back to completely original condition. That would be a shame if they cut it up.

Cody, did you happen to look at the date on that license plate?

Thanks for sharing the photos. Too bad the owner isn't willing to sell it. It kills me when someone won't part with a vehicle but they aren't willing to fix it up either (not saying the bus owner falls into that category, just speaking in generalities). Storing it for a future build is fine but I have personally seen over 25 trucks this year that appear abandoned or forgotten but when you approach the owner they all have reasons for doing nothing about it. Of course the minute I leave it seems like the truck suddenly gets scrapped. Shame, shame.

Thanks. Was just wondering how long it might have stayed in service. In February, 1958, a 53-56 Ford school bus (I never could find out exactly what year), went into the Big Sandy River in the next county over from me (Floyd Co.). A BUNCH of kids were on the bus. Twenty-six and the driver didn't get out. The story was that the bus slowly swerved to miss a tow truck pulling another truck out of the ditch and went straight into the water. Others said that the truck had a steering issue and didn't correct like it should have. Nevertheless, when they pulled the bus out of the water, they took it straight back to the county garage and cut it up the same day. So nobody will ever know.

I think that would be a cool project if you could get ahold of one.
It would be different then the average build/resto.

I know where a bonus built short bus is that I would bet is for sale. It looks really complete and in not bad shape. I have pics I can email to someone so they can post them.

It would be fascinating to find out the story on that deal. It seems hard to believe the bus would have only been used a year or two, then parked forever. But it also doesn't look like it was run recently and registered with YOM plates, either. If only it could talk...
