Riding the bus to school is probably not the best of memories for any of us. It would have been a much better, and faster trip if our school bus looked like this 1932 Ford School Bus. One glance at this 1932 Ford School Bus and you can see it’s very far from stock. The wild custom paint features black, orange, and a flame motif with a mural on the giant rear door celebrating the Ford V8.
Inside the 1932 Ford School Bus has a bunch of custom seats. The two back seats are bench units with three buckets all in almond and hot sauce ultra-leather featuring embroidered Ford 75th anniversary logos. The custom 1932 Ford School Bus has plenty of chrome and billet that has been etched in some cases with flames.
All seven windows of the bus are power with the array of switches near the driver being for controlling the windows. The bus also has a remotely controlled, working cowl vent.
