Antique Buses & Collectible Coaches. What is it about old cars that we love? I can’t say I can put my finger right on the answer, but I’ll say this, I think it extends to buses as well! That olden style appearance of coaches made 50 years ago is irresistible. It can be something cool to show off to your friends or even present an elegant look for an exclusive tour bus company. Regardless of why you love antique buses, they can be quite difficult to locate. In addition to finding a good antique bus for sale, maintenance can be difficult if parts are hard to find.
Some popular antique coach manufacturers were Antique Ford Bus, Antique Flxible Transit Buses, and Antique Chevy Buses. My personal favorite are the collectible school bus style of antique bus. I enjoy the more car like build of the older school buses. Flxible transit buses were fairly popular throughout several decades and still remain popular among collectors and the eclectic tour or charter company of today.
The Antique Bus
Older buses for sale can be a hassle to find and when you do locate some collectible coach that suits your interests, older coaches can also be a headache to restore. Knowing a mechanic or a particular place that deals in vintage bus parts can be advantageous when you are running around buying up antique buses in need of restoration. Assuming you do find an antique bus to restore, sometimes you may be pleasantly surprised when it comes to the cost of the project. Though parts are harder to get, generally antique buses that aren’t in the best condition as it is can be excellent restorations that don’t cost you an arm and a leg. When dealing with some of the largest modern coaches of today, many times you’ll find these are luxury coaches with heavy price tags on just about everything from the windshield to the transmission & engine. An antique bus doesn’t necessarily mean that each part is going to cost you a small fortune to replace, it’s just a matter of locating it.
Pictures Of Antique Buses
I have included some photos of antique buses that I enjoyed in particular, there obviously aren’t as many styles, bodies, chassis, etc to choose from when you go back 50 years, however there were still a great many styles that were available in every era.
