1957 Chevrolet Bus

HIGHLIGHTS: Unique, eye-catching, parade-ready classic bus! This 1957 Chevrolet school bus is something you definitely don't see every day! 454V8, TH400 transmission, power brakes!

BODY OVERVIEW: Having seen a restoration, unlike so many heavy duty vehicles of this era, the body is straight and solid. It's seriously clean!

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This bus is yellow, but certainly not school bus yellow! The paint is a very gentle, light yellow that adds quite a bit of personality to this old bus. The white painted accents really make it pop! The paint is in good condition.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: There isn't much as far as seating goes, but the driver's seat is in nice condition. The plaid couch is our favorite addition, and would be great for passengers in a low-speed scenario such as a parade! Without all those pesky seats for passengers, the possibilities for this bus are endless.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is a 454V8 mated to a TH400 automatic transmission, meaning this bus will respond more like a vehicle from the 70s than from the 50s. It runs and sounds great, and while there is no power steering, that authenticates the “old school bus” experience that much more!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: It's a vintage school bus, you can't help but love it!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you're looking for a family cruiser that's easy to park, drive, and maneuver this probably isn't it. She likes wide open spaces!

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This bus needs a few tweaks, including the fuel gauge, horn, headlights, and brake lights.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? This bus is probably best suited for parade, show, or display use in its current condition. However, if you're looking for a good base to build a killer, super unique camping vehicle out of or something along those lines, this would be a great candidate!

Dealership is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by third parties. The majority of these vehicles are considered classics or antiques, meaning they are older vehicles with sometimes dated automotive technology. We are not an expert in the construction, engineering, finishes, materials or components of these vehicles. Our employees are a team of talented individuals with a history in the classic car industry. We perform an extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent, but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent.

Dealership assumes no responsibility for any repairs needed to the vehicle and it's the buyers sole responsibility for any repairs that might be needed.

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such. Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

Because we advertise each vehicle with so many third-party affiliates, it is the customer's sole responsibility to verify the accuracy of the price with the dealer. All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Vehicle availability is not guaranteed and subject to prior sale. Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle.
