Terrific combination and appears to be in outstanding shape. That 6-speed should also yield some pretty impressive mileage. Great find!

Re: 1991 Int Blue bird long snout

Very nice looking bus!! Looks like it's in great shape! I saw in your other post how easy you got the title swapped. WHERE?? I'm also in mn, and went in a while ago and got all these forms to fill out. Also supposed to have reciepts for everything. Mine is mostly converted and has everything, so it should be just as easy. I just have it as a Y class truck for now. Insurance was a piece of cake, though. I got it through Progressive, with no issues. I don't dare try to change anything, though, as they claim they don't do it now.

SW MN.... You could probably drive down just for the small town no nonsense DMV office. PM for location if you are going to.

Re: 1991 Int Blue bird long snout

So I got locked out of my own house today...... Dont ask.

I was going to have about 6 hours before anyone would be home with a key. I was sitting in the shop wondering what I was going to do and thinking about how bad I wanted a sun drop when it hit me that I should work on the bus. It was about 25 today but I stayed warm working my butt off.....


I got all the seats out except two up front incase somone wants to go for a ride.

Re: 1991 Int Blue bird long snout

I love the picture with the dog. Is that a Beagle or a Basset Hound?

Re: 1991 Int Blue bird long snout

Its a pure bred basset but looks alot like a basset beagle. Great dog....... Sheds alot.


The tranny is pretty sweet hoping for some great MPG's.... I may have over stated the gearing in the bus...... It will do 65 but I think it is closer to redline of 2800rpm than 2400 rpm.... We'll see once I get the new clutch in, hopfully within a month.

Re: 1991 Int Blue bird long snout

You might want to keep an eye out for some taller gears. That 444 can definitely still pull strongly down to around 2000 and your mpg's would shoot up dramatically. You would have to do a little more shifting in hilly or mountainous terrain, but I think it is worth investigating. Just a thought.
