Smile Hello Everybody!

Hello,

My husband and I have been restoring a 1949 Carpenter (Short) school bus for a couple of years. Itís been difficult since there were so many original parts missing.

We plan to have it all original looking on the outside, the interior still up in the airÖwe havenít decided on it.

I found this site and thought it would be a great source of information and camaraderie.

Thank you,
BusGirl49

Welcome! I'm also new here....I honestly haven't had much of a response to a few posts so far, but the forum is loaded with useful information.

Good luck on your bus build journey!

Hi William,
We’re missing 4 side windows, they were removed frame and all to install a stove and Countertop.
Thanks,
Lisa
