It's not for sale, but it sits at the BGA used bus lot in Hudson, Florida.

Here's a 1958 GMC Thomas parked out in the desert. It's obviously retired.

1959 Ford/Carpenter: I took these pics back in the mid 80's. The bus had just finished being restored and it had that brand new look to it. I know the owner of the bus and even though he had some nice classic cars,this is what he loved the most. Sadly,this bus burned in a garage fire at the owners house last year. The owners house was not touched but the garage and everything in it was a total loss. The fire was on my bus route and it was very hard to see theburned,twisted remains of what was once a beautiful classic school bus.

What a nice surprise to see that beautiful Carpenter Ford again! I remember seeing those pics of that bus years ago here on the forums. That is not good news though to hear that the bus was destroyed in a fire. There are so few of those classics left! Thanks for sharing!

1939 Chevrolet Carpenter, got to meet this one in person. According to the owner it was actually being restored by Carpenter until they went under in 2001.

I really like that IH/Superior. I always thought Superior made a beautiful coach back in the 60's.
