Old Church Bus found abandoned in woods

We came across this old school bus close to our property, and the land owner said we could have it and the contents.. It turned out to be a bigger job than we thought, as it took us all day to blaze a road and uncover the vines and tree roots that had grown into it.. We'll have to come back later to get it with bigger equipment.

1937 Chevy School Bus / Motor Home project..Part 1
We were originally going to take the body off the original chassis, and put it on the 1985 Chevrolet 1 ton truck chassis, but changed our minds.. We're instead going to leave the body on the original frame rails, and change out all the running with the '85 Chevy truck.. We're changing out the rear end with the narrow "cab & chassis" truck 4/11 rear end, and keeping the original '37 springs and hangers, as they were fine.. We did have to cut the back part of the frame rails, and bring them in about 1 3/4 inches on each side, to make it work.. These "cab and Chassis" rear ends are a lot narrower than the dually rear ends, and is the exact width we needed. The 1987 and earlier Chevrolet truck front ends, actually unbolt, and the whole unit rolls out.. So that makes an easy swap.. We hoped that we could simply roll the front end under our old chassis, make brackets, and bolt it up, but that made the bus sit way too high in the front.. In order to drop the bus down about 6 inches in the front, we cut the front frame section out, and added a new box frame section on top of it, and then we boxed the plates on it for additional strength.. It was easier and a whole lot cheaper, than buying a dropped spindle kit, and shorter coil springs.. Plus we couldn't have gotten 6 inches doing it that way.. We are keeping the complete front end purely stock, with the steering box, steering arms, torsion bar, etc., in the original positions.. That way there should be no problems with bump steer, rough riding, or anything.. Also, we didn't want to run tiny tires and wheels in the front either.. We're going to widen the front fenders 3" each, so it will look right..

1937 Chevy School Bus / Motor Home...part 2
We're putting the mid 1980's Chevrolet 1 ton dually (cab & chassis) front end under the bus.. We were able to lower the front end by almost 6 inches by cutting the original frame out and adding the thick boxed channel iron on top of it.. It was WAY cheaper than buying the dropped spindles kit and shorter coil springs.. If we had used the other frame rails from the Frito truck, we would have had the same problem with the bus sitting too high in the front.. We kept the steering box, torsion bar, everything in the exact position it was in, under the stock Chevrolet truck.. So there should be no problem with bump steer or anything..

The Old Truck Runs Again!
Please stop by and give us a "like!" - http://www.JohnsOldTruck.com I've been in love with this 1949 Chevy 3100 for over 30 years. It used to belong to my brother, but as often happens life gets in the way and it sat in his garage until he needed the space and we made a deal in 2004. Thanks Brian & Jim! Your help means more than you know... And thanks to all for watching and sharing! Peace - JPS
