HighLander - Thanks for sharing a jewel manufactured by the Corbitt Motor Truck Co., Henderson (North Carolina) around 1918.

Sounds like wc62 knows what he's talking about.  I thought it looked kinda Maccar like but the radiator doesn't match.  Fenders do.  Frame horns don't.  That sure is a Sheldon rear axle though and Corbitt did use them.

Mr Souday is correct, this early school bus is a Corbitt Model D from 1919, give or take a few years. This one doesn't look like too much fun in the winter, but it sure beat walking. Thanks to Don McKenzie for the photo and 1919 ad below.

In 1917 the first motorized school bus in NC rolled down the streets of Oriental

Oriental

Oriental is nestled amid five creeks along the Neuse River and connected to the Intracoastal Waterway via a 10-foot deep channel. Settled in 1870, residents wanted to establish a post office when they found the town first needed an official name. One resident recalled seeing the nameplate from the steamship "Oriental" at a friend’s house in Manteo; the steamer had wrecked off the coast of Cape Hatteras in 1862 while under the commission of the Union army. The Town of Oriental was officially incorporated in 1899. Today, with more power and sailboats in residence than people, it has earned its reputation as being "The Sailing Capital of North Carolina."
