I dont remember in the summer that I drove Bluebird busses to help a family friend, that every bus didnt come with a set of books.. I may have just not looked, I just dont remember them... when a school system bought new busses there was a training session on delivery with the fleet manager and the drivers who were going to be assigned the new busses.. and it was pretty much the stuff that was in the manuals and to show off "features" that may have been ordered.. this was in the mid 80s.. and it was just about the beginning of when schools started ordering A/C, so there was a set of books on the A/C if a bus had it, as they were always 3rd party installed.. bluebird didnt put it in themselves at the time..
so books may be rare.. Service shop manuals would likely be even more rare.. as only an authorized blue-bird body service company would have a set and maybe a fleet manager at a school system.. which im sure theres probably shop manuals layng around in school service shops for busses they no longer have....
