Re: The bus on that Hampton film

Kevin Macomber @ Narrow Gauge Modeling Company, has die cast 1:43 1940 Dodge and !941 Plymouth trucks, that may fit your needs.
The 1939 Plymouth front end looks VERY close to your photograph.

You all remember that Vimeo video of the film shot in Hampton in color?
At 0:49, we see the only color representations I've ever seen of a Carter County bus before VE day.
Well, I was on a quest to find out the type of busses in that film, to get a model of it for my layout in O scale, I submitted the issue to a O scale forum and someone figured it out. It's a 1939 Dodge front end, with a custom body:

Scratch building the top of the bus body will be a real pain, but the rest shouldn't be too bad, in styrene. I just hope someone makes this truck in 1/43 scale!
