75 Bluebird and 57 chevys under construction

I am in the process of beginning 2 conversions. I already have a 1957 chevy/superior 30' that I live in (Not a professional conversion, just living quarters) , and just got another '57 chevy/carpenter coach (30') and also a '75 bluebird FE gas 84 passenger unit which I intend to build to replace my current home in the '57. Anyone with BlueBird FE Gas Motor experiance is welcome to let me know problems run into in their conversions on BlueBirds. this is my 5th bus but my 1st Bluebird. Also will probably sell the two '57s when the conversion is complete.

Hello Busliving

wow that sounds like quite a collection. Do you have photo's? How long have you called a bus your home (just curious) and do you have any pearls of wisdom? I find the whole idea very intriuging. Good luck and have fun. -Richard

Pearls of wisdom

I have lived in the current '57 Chevy for about 2 yrs. Busses make great homes when you do it yourself because you build them to suit your needs and wants. A bus is a stable building platform. My decks are stainless steel. No real Pearls of wisdom other than it's an interesting lifestyle that not all people understand or can apprecialte, yet, I enjoy being who I am.
I am looking forward to the BlueBird coach to live in as it will afford more headroom and living space. Eventually I am sure it will just be a motor home (Whenever I decide to settle down) but hopefully one worth having. The '57's are fun to work with and I'll hate parting with tem but I will have to due to space limitations. They are actually Chevrolet 6800 series chassis, one with a Superior coach and the other, a Carpenter coach. I do have pics, just have to load them which I will do in a few days hopefully.
