Re: 1966 GMC bus for sale

Hey there,

I recognize this bus ;-}. It has been a long time but I know someone who could use it if you still have it available.

Thanx~T

Vintage school bus

I love this bus. But this is really a GMC Carpenter rather than a Wayne. Special School District of St. Louis County bought scores of these buses. The ones they bought with the Vistaramic windshield came as 24 passenger buses and 36 passenger buses. The 24 passenger buses were Fords with 3-speed automatics. The 36 passengers were bought came with both 4-speed manual transmissions and a 3-speed automatic transmission. Inward/outward doors are good since each time you close them, you get a pretty good seal. But the downside to any bus that has one leaf of a door or a jacknife door opening inside the bus leaves a spot for where air can come up from the bottom step. All of the Vistaramic Carpenter buses Special bought had panic-free doors where both door leaves swung outward. I am not sure who bout this, but if the new owner decides to sell it, my good friend Scott Thompson of Branson Gray Line would like to have it for his hop on/hop off bus service. He would have to convert the transmission to automatic because these days, there are some drivers that can't shift. Converting the transmission from manual to automatic is something. Inside the bus, you have to pull the clutch pedal out and leave only the brake and the throttle.

cool bus, but the thread is 10 years old so im guessing it has long gone to a new owner.. the only thing scary to me about these is the curved windshield on them.
