He transforms a school bus into a Hot Rod

A vehicle of rare originality has just been put up for sale. It’s a cross between a school bus and… a hot rod.

Some customizations or personalizations of cars are clearly out of the ordinary. This is precisely the case with this vehicle, recently put up for sale on Facebook Marketplace. Noticed on the platform by The media The Drivethis machine is nothing more and nothing less than a yellow American school bus, a 2008 Chevrolet.

But already, the fact that a model of this kind is sold is rare enough to be noted. However, one element makes all the difference from other types of school buses. Its former owner wanted booster ses performances by installing a more powerful engine at the front. What emerges is a strange and unusual mix between a bus and a hot rod.

A Chevrolet school bus converted into a hot rod

The concept of the hot rod simply consists of taking an old vehicle to restore it and power it with a much more powerful engine. In general, the styling of these cars is extravagant. This is precisely what brings this Chevrolet bus closer to a hot rod. Although this car only dates from 2008 – it’s much older than most hot rods – its owner was clearly inspired by the concept.

Unlike other buses, this one is equipped witha supercharged V8 engine. According to The Driveit is even boosted by a « supercharger 4-71 » sold by The Blower Shop. However, it is difficult to know precisely what the engine characteristics are and what the real power of this Chevrolet bus is. But it is above all his style that is worth the detour.

The engine comes out of the bus hood. This originality gives a crazy look to this vehicle, which contrasts sharply with the fact that it was initially a bus to bring children to school. The interior of the bus is not left out. The owner installed a checkerboard floor and a racing seat for each passenger. To top it off, a television was even installed.

In itself, the price of this modified school bus is not that high. Its owner has set its value at 22,500 US dollarsor a little more than 21 000 euros. But it is unlikely that its future buyer will use it as their main vehicle. Besides, it is difficult to know what this bus could be used for. So, will it find a new buyer?
