As a long time reader of GEM I thought my fellow subscribers would enjoy seeing how a couple of tractor nuts get around. My father and I rebuilt this bus for transporting our tractors to and from the antique tractor pulls and shows.

The bus is a 1977 full size International school bus. We bought the bus partly cut down. After its life as a school bus, it was used for many things. The gentleman we purchased the bus from used it to haul scrap iron.

Among the many things we did to the bus was to add 4? feet to the end. This made loading and unloading much easier. In the cabin we added couch and chairs. We also put in a chemical toilet and sink. Very handy on long trips and at the fairgrounds.

The tractors you see on the back of the bus are a 1947 International 1-6 which I restored in 1987, and my father's Farmall H. He purchased the tractor from a fellow club member. They are both good pullers, especially the H.

In the fall of 1991, I added a 1953 Super H and a 1954 Super M.T.A. to my collection. I am in the process of restoring them both.
