Looking at the picture of the front end it must be an Eagle.  It has all of the tell tell signs of a Eagle.  Rust Rust and more Rust.

I don't know the year or model, however Rosa Parks refused to sit in the back of one very similar, although shorter in Mongomery, AL on 12-01-55.

The post above about the Eagle was funny.

You might be a good guy...however...when all of the Eagle lovers on this board desend on your house and go ape-you know what...I don't have your back BUDDY! Grin

Dallas will probably know, he knows all about old stuff! Wink

Did someone say Eagle with Rust?

Not to sure about that as most Eagles I've seen you can't see the rust. Grin

Don't worry Cody, I've got your back, if you'll get mine.  Cheesy

Looking for worn out airbags right now, don't seem to find any at all, oh well.

Looks like a GMC to me.  Check out these busses here www.coachinfo.com/AllAboutBuses/GMC_Info.html
and see if you can match it up.  The lights on the front look like the 3302 but it says there is only one left, so it must me a similar model.

Corrected link. Richard

Buddy, I have tried unsuccessfully to get that link to work. Will you please let know the correct link and I will post it in your original message.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride

There it is...

PD 3302
The PD-3302 was built in 1945. It is 33' long and 96" wide, with a wheelbase of 212". It is powered by a 4-71 Detroit Diesel. It seats 33 and has both inside luggage rags and under-floor storage bays. It was made by the Pontiac division at the end of WWII under "office of defense transportation'' or ODT rules. Thus, it is different than most other GMC buses in that the engine is mounted straight-in and the body has some steel. Most GMC buses have a transverse engine and all-aluminum bodies. There were 100 PD-3302's built; the one shown
(PD-3302-016) belongs to the Pacific Bus Museum (www.pacbus.org) and is the only one known to exist

Are you sure it's not a 3702?

Lee, It's possible....??

I thought by the 2 horiozonal brackets just under the windshield that it was too close to the 3302

based on the number of sliding sash windows I am going to say it is in the 37 model series.

Those are well before my time and I do not know all the tell tales to distinguish between say the 3701 and the 3702 models.
