Nice bus. Interesting side door, seems something could be done with that. I assume a gas engine? What size, and what trans?

I like the old Carpenters from the late 60's early 70's.

The larger side passenger guard rail pin stripes wrapped around the corners of the body and around the back tail lights with a point

OSB is the last material I would use on a bus floor.

Advantect OSB has worked great for our railroad passenger car floors, 15 years so far, and it is exposed on the underside, carpeted inside. The carpet lasts about 5-7 years, so when we change carpet it is a good time to see how the floor is doing and it holds up very well.



So from this experiance I would be good with it on a bus floor

my Fishbowl has marine plywood that so far has lasted 54 years and is still amazingly good... so crazy to crawl under a bus and see exposed wood from underneath

on a school bus you have metal metween the wood and the elements
if the windows are reasonably sealed then that OSB should last for awhile

OSB can be coated with Drylok concrete sealer and it's pretty much waterproof if the occasional leak happens.
