hi im new to the bus thing and have wanted one for a while to fit in with the rest of our older collection so last week we bought a 65 chevy 30 foot bus it has a small block chevy and a clarke 5 speed with a 7.20 axle this is an older comversion with a phillips inverter roof air and heat and a cedar interior with diamond tuff ceiling i think it has 5 coats of paint on it will be going through the bus this winter and will get pictures on as soon as i can figure out how this bus has 10 lug nut rear wheels and 5 lugs on the front i think they are splits what wheels will fit this bus in a newer version we think this will be a great part of life and are looking forward to bussin

hi all and thanks for the posts and thanks to steve for posting the pictures for me as for how the wood was installed i have no idea the pics you see are the day we bought the bus turns out the motor has only one trip to alaska on it from vancouver island bc we now have it home and it is running great however it has not been on the road since 93 the people we bought it from owned it since then and lived in it for some time they moved away and put it in storage then decided to sell i found it in the storage compound next to where i work and paid 1000 cash for it will have to do the brakes since the wheel cylinders leaked. we even got it reggyed in our name it is reggyed as a motorhome and yea im liking steves bus THANKS ALL!
