Does anyone know of any 1948 Ford school buses anywhere. One of our club members has a hotrod 1948 Ford school bus that has been shortened. It has a 454 Chevy, 700R4 with a Gear Vendors overdrive. It has a host of other mods that make it an ideal cruiser to go to rod runs.
Last week he was returning home from a rod run and had an altercation with a teenager in a Cavalier who ran a stop sign. He is in need of some front end sheet metal, hood, Fenders, grill and bumper. This weekend he ran up to Dallas and looked at a couple he had some leads on, but they were all too far gone. He is willing to to do some traveling if the prospects are promising.

Are they that much different than a 48 Ford pickup? What about a 1 ton or larger Ford truck? I would think these wouldn't be too hard to come by.
I might have a source. Find out if it must be a bus. I don't think it does.
Where bouts in Dallas did he come to?

It has to be a 1 ton or larger. The hood from a pickup will fit, but the fenders, grill and bumper will not. He went to Fredricksberg to look at one then got a lead on one west of Dallas, just don't know where at the moment.
