1937 Chevy School Bus 8.1l/4l80e Build

I've been on some other forums but feel this is probably the best place to post pictures of this project. Hope you enjoy.

I've got an old 64 dodge truck cab. I'm going to sell the body for scrap iron and make a long Stake bed truck with the chassis.



My plan B is to make it the coolest old street rod bus ever.


In case your wondering, i'm leaning towards doing plan B.
