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
