Just got a 57 GMC bus, trying to figure out what model the chassis is, no motor in it, serial number is all I have unless somebody can tell me where to find the VIN

What is the serial number?
Where did you find that number?

There are some GMC big truck people here.
And, you might want to ask on OldGMCtrucks.com

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

please post a pic of the front hub (center of wheel). By the pic from the back corner, it looks like it may be the 6 bolt stud piloted wheel pattern? Do the covers o the front wheel bearings bolt on?

Welcome to the Bolt!
Interesting bus you have there. Do you know who manufactured the bus body?
Looks like another Chevy bus in the background.
Be sure to check in at the Big Bolt forum on this site. Lots of good info there on the bigger trucks, and that would include busses.

I got a pair of those new Memory Foam shoe inserts. Hasn't helped much- When I walk to another room, I still can't remember why.
