New Frontend Mockup

I would like to get a bus, and change the hood and grill to look a little more up to date. I've always been impressed with the front ends of the Dodge Trucks, and got to thinking, that maybe I could get the frontend from one, and put it on a bus. Since many Dodge's use Cummins Turbo Diesel engines, it'd only be appropriate to find a bus with a Cummins Chassis.

Do any of you have any knowledge to the size of the average bus hood, and the size of the Dodge front end? Is it possible to make it fit?

This is no perfect mockup, just something quick with pics I found online.

Re: New Frontend Mockup

check out the 70-80's shoebox dodge 2 ton trucks they used what looks like a standard pickup front end with long fender skirts and wheel flairs, moved the headlights down in tghe grill and hung the bumper below the core support. I'd love to have a vintage club cab or crew cab dodge on a 2 ton chassis with a cummins for a trailer toter.
