In my quests of looking through two of my favorite current obsessions, buses, and vintage COE trucks, I started wondering how many are out there or have been at one point or another. It seems most of the vintage ones that I have found are a shorter wheel base, but very cool. However, there is one particular guy who took the front end off a 53 GMC Cabover, and whipped out some pretty nice metalworking to bring it all together with the back end of an old schoolbus. Anyone ever considered doing such a thing? It's damn near impossible to find old COE's now, but sometimes you find them without any frame or engine, just the cab shell. Seems like that would be a perfect project for someone with some serious metalworking skills. I feel like the ride height would be improved, as would the front end visual. Would work well with a little roof raise as well I'd think.
This is the best video that I have found that shows the majority of the photos. If anyone knows where to find articles on the build, or how to contact the guy, I'd love to know.
Also, if anyone has any other cool COE bus photos, feel free to nestle them in here as well. Love to see unique vintage steel!
