Summary

The Wayne Works of Richmond, Indiana, promoted its school bus bodies in this circa 1922 catalog. Wayne marketed its flexible "Combination Transportation" bodies to rural school districts where road quality varied with the weather. These bodies could be mounted on motorized truck chassis when roads were dry, or remounted on horse-drawn running gear when mud or snow required it.
