I am wondering if anyone has pictures of Carpenter Buses from the 60's or 70's with the rounded back. I draw school buses but have an awful time with this type of bus because I can never get the angle right.

I might be able to get a photo of one. The local wrecking yard here has one, but it's in nasty shape, though.

I hope these help! Top to bottom they are from a '63 Carpenter brochure, a'59 Carpenter ad and a '60 Carpenter brochure. Carpenter had the round rear on conventionals through 1965 or 66.
