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..

Abandoned Old Truck Breathes New Life.
This 1965 Ford F100 was abandoned on the property I bought about 10 years ago.. We didn't think it would run or anything, as it was pretty rough looking, just sitting under some trees.. It appears to have never been tampered with, and it is all there,. It's a short bed, short wheelbase fleetside Custom Cab, and is worth saving.. We were surprised the engine purrs like a kitten, and doesn't smoke and.. We found out the previous owner was an old man (he died) that changed oil in all his vehicles every 1,000 miles, religiously.. The shifter needs work, and there are no brakes, but we will take care of that at a later date.

Old bus graveyard (part 2)
A friend of mine found a collection of school buses that had been used for storage near where he lives, I'm going to try and see if maybe they may be interested in selling some of them to me. There are some going back to the late 40's or early 50's. For some reason all of the buses had the tires and rims removed.
