    Well, it took longer then I thought it would to get a decent shot of them together, but here they are~



    The opening sure looks the same to me. For reference~ the tire sizes are-
    7.50-16LTs on the Transtar, and 7.50-20s on the front of the bus.

    (yes- the rear tires on the bus are bigger- 8.25-20s...)

    I wonder if the bus body behind the cowl has its own body/serial number?
    The answer to that is "yes" indeed!!!



    Pretty cool, eh?

    The view in that picture is looking towards the left front corner of the driver's compartment.
    That blob you see on the right is the clutch pedal.

    Sorry to be a pain- but I'd really like to see pictures of that, or the others. As you can see-
    mine got painted over- and I'd like to know what it is supposed to look like!!!

    The C-cab doors and their internal parts all are identical, 49-64. Some had extra holes for mouldings or rain visors. Remove doors with the hinges attached if possible, as the hinges wear out. There were only two basic hood designs, 49-55 and 56-end. See this list for model/series info. Don't use the serial number, use the model number.

    Doors are the same. Post the serial number and model number and we can tell you exactly what the truck is.

    do the doors also fit? they are in better shape than mine, I may end up with the whole truck, the front end is good but the cab rusted out bad.
    also how do you determine the year from vin # I think it is a 54-55 there are also a couple M series trucks in there.

    Even if you run across a rust free fender with front end damage, cut off the bottom part, big truck, small truck they all rust there. Save them if you can. Measure a foot plus a few inches and cut.

    If the grille is good, I'd like to have it. The headlight rims too.

    The fenders will be the same, but a 3R will have extra holes in the front for the grille. And if a 3R14 had big tires, the wheel well openings may be larger. If the dash cluster is good, it's worth saving.
