Interesting find while removing rear cap of Bluebird

I have a 2002 handybus. It has a wheelchair lift. I am doing some conversion work on it and removed a small rectangle body panel directly beneath the rear door and found an aluminum ramp installed under the bus like you see on the back of a uhaul truck! I guess it was in case the bus was purchased without a wheelchair lift. As I am turning this bus into a giant pickup truck, this ramp will be super handy!

Re: Interesting find while removing rear cap of Bluebird

Does your bus have wheel wells coming up out of the floor? Someone else here had a wheelchair bus with flat interior floors and a ramp also, so it would be interesting to see if the option comes with a raised interior floor and a conventional floor also.

Hmmmm.

And what length is your bus, if I might be so bold to ask?

The bus is 32' long. I don't believe the wheel wells come up through the floor like most.
