1958 GM TGH-3102-824 (Virginia School Bus)

Here is another one of my buses. This is a 1958 GM TGH-3102-824. This bus origanilly ran as a school bus somewhere in Virginia (note the school bus ligts on top). It is a good running bus and very complete. This one will also be restored someday.

When I started kindergarten in 1959, my first bus ride of any kind was on a GMC TGH3102 much like this. It was No.18 and owned and operated by Chester W. Hirsch, who ran both a bus garage and Dodge car dealership out of a facility on Covington Street,NY. It is now the bus garage of Henry L. Hill Inc. which is the local school bus operator. Until the 1970s, Batavia Bus Service of Batavia,NY ran a small fleet of these buses in local service in and around that small city.

This was Photographed in Pottstown PA a long time ago. It is TGH-3102-824 And was sold new to Upper Moreland School District in Willow Grove PA. When I got it, it was a church owned Office bus.Nick and I towed it to my place with my 56 Autocar wrecker(What a Beast) and i sold it acouple of years ago to a neighbor who has restored it as a Hunter's bus. It is on the road and he sometimes takes it to local Cruise Nights.........George

I have an old wreck of a bus from the 50's may be able to salvage some minor parts from it. the engine and drive train still intact but am sure it is ceased, let me know if anyone would be interested in the engine for restoration.Thanks

I sure love those old busses. I used to own a '54 International R190 60 passenger former school bus. It was all original except for one repaint by the school district. And it sure ran great. I bought it back in the 80s with plans on turning the bus into an RVto live in and travel the southwest. I ended up selling the bus a few years later due to getting married, only to divorce 2 years later! Darn it, to this day I still regret selling that great old bus.
