1965 bluebird parts needed

I'm needing a driver side glass, alternator, and regulator. The local parts house may carry alternator and regulator but my biggest worry is the glass. Can a glass shop replace the factory latch? Ant info is greatly appreciated!

We have a 1965 Bluebird with a 1977 Chevy 366 engine. Our bus runs on propane. I can't seem to find any info online re: wiring diagram, gauges, pics, anything anyone has would be helpful. It was converted inside to a motorhome. Looking for any info. It runs good! Needs some TLC
Things we need so far
1. Driver front windshield
2. Gauges

If it's flat glass, then any reasonably competent auto glass shop should be able to cut one for it. A curved glass will be a bit more of a challenge. Good luck.

You're going to struggle finding any manuals/info on something that old online. Best bet would be to look for something in paperback and even then you'll be lucky to find anything. Best bet would be to call your local bluebird dealer and ask if they have anything.

any flat glass can be made. just use the vehicle glass shop... you have the old propane system, which contains few elements.. you can buy all the parts, ask the real propane dealers if you have a problem. the new systems in todays busses are way better, and many districts are using the new engines... i love to drive them as i can really wind up the engine..l.
