Interiors, Old And New
I thought that a page of interiors, from different makers and throughout the years would be a interesting addition. I went through some of the other sections of the site and found a few as well as scouring the web for for sale buses.
It is really amazing to me on how much the interiors have changed. Take a look back, and I’m sure you will agree!
2005 International front engine bus drivers area.
Old Ford with Thomas body. Looks about mid 80’s.
A Thomas bus with the green interior.
Mid 90’s International with a Thomas body, drivers area.
Nice modern Blue Bird interior, in blue, of course.
Here’s a oldie when the seats had less padding. I believe this is a Carpenter body.
Drivers area of a 04 IC bus.
How about this 04 Blue Bird Vision drivers area.
07 Thomas HDX driver area.
08 Blue Bird Vision.
03 Blue Bird All American FE drivers area.
86 All American…Big difference from the picture above.
This is a 91 All American for comparison.
Mid 90’s All American with the “4way center gauges” There is a button to push to switch between fuel, oil, temp and volts.
The rather spartan trim of the Amtran. Doesn’t that seat look comfy?

Here’s a goodie… Look at all that metal! Back in the day, there were nowhere near the standards that we have today.
03 TC 2000 Drivers Area.
1968 Carpenter Drivers area…Compare to the new buses…
