Chevrolet (or Chevy) is a motor company based in Detroit, Michigan founded in November 1911 by Louis Chevrolet, and William C. Durant. It eventually became a division of General Motors (GM) up to this day. Chevrolet`s brand is the biggest selling brand among all the GM brands. Chevy`s truck unit produced buses which are designed using truck chassis.
There are a lot of vintage chevy school buses today that are being restored to their useful states. Some were already existent in the early 1930s and were supposed to be subject to be crushed for scrap iron prior to their restoration. Some of these vintage buses may have been long gone but some are restored and privately owned today. Later models of these chevy buses have undergone minimal restoration as in the case of the models in the 1990s.
Those that were manufactured in the 1990s usually are sold cheaper than their vintage counterparts today. This is because of the general restoration process that the old ones have to undergo before they can be functional again. Some of the vintage buses were converted from school buses to camper trucks. They are considerably smaller in size and capacity than the later 1990s school buses.
Today, Chevy is not manufacturing any school bus or any type of bus anymore. The company now focuses on producing cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans. Its biggest market, being a division of GM is North America but it expands its market in the Asia Pacific, Central and South America, Africa, and Europe. Currently it leads the other GM brands in providing performance, fuel economy, and value.
