1925 Other Makes Original Yellowstone Park Bus #310

Provenance

Yellowstone Park Bus #310

Extremely Rare - One of only a handful restored remaining this bus number 310 was used in Yellowstone Park from 1925 through World War II. This rare piece of history has been lovingly restored by one of the World's foremost Yellowstone Bus Experts. The expert feels strongly about saving this piece of history for futuregenerations/museums/collections(hence the bus being offered at tens of thousands below the actual restoration costs).

This bus was purchased by Yellowstone National Park to replace the vehicles that were burned in the disastrous bus barn fire in early 1925.The original engine and chassis numbers match with Yellowstone Park records for Bus number 310 (numbers matching). It was originally purchased from White Truck with a Bender Body Co. body.

A family purchased this bus towards the end of World War II. It was located in Northern Washington State where it had been in storage in a windowless shed where it remained until it was restored.

The wood was reproduced using wood patterns from an authentic original body. The original steel cowl remains and the balance of the body was reproduced in matching 22-gauge steel. The trunk has been reproduced as per Scott Body specifications and has a couple of more inches vertical space at the opening than the old Bender trunk. An original-type honeycomb radiator core was imported from England to restore the radiator to like-new condition.

The original White GR engines have an excellent oil system so engine wear is usually minimal. The engine was rebuilt with new piston rings. The valves were ground and new valve guides were installed. The connecting rod and main bearings were preserved and refitted. The transmission and rear-end were also inspected restored and serviced so entire vehicle has been restored to running and driving condition.

The original 8.25x22" tires have good tread and are available for display in a museum setting. The investor has the choice of the original tires or may choose the new 9.00x22" tires (as seen in photos) which mach very closely to the original tire size that is no longer available.

For your convenience the bus has been fitted with an electric starter (may still use the original hand crank if desired). The original fuel vacuum tank has been replaced by an electric fuel pump. Electric lights and horn have also been installed.

Potential investors are invited to visit Bus #310 in person (may pick up at the airport in Salt Lake City Utah if desired).

More information photos and video of the bus driving is available upon request. Call 801-484-5300 with any questions before this opportunity is gone forever.
