Hello everyone, This is my first time posting but I have hovered for a long time here and have learned a lot from you all.
My band & I have been looking for a bus for about a year now and have now finally found just what we were looking for.
Its a 1994 Bluebird TC2000 27' Bus with a 5.9 Cummins in it with an Allison AT545 tranny.
We are going to be using it to tour in our band and have named it gusgus. We first looked at smaller cutaways mostly fords and all of them had so many issues. We then started looking at these smaller bluebirds and we feel like this will be perfect for what we need.
Are plans are to:
-Take off anything and everything that has to do with the school bus feature like stop sign, front crossing gate, top lights and stickers.
- Paint the bus black with some green striping (band colors)
- Take out wheelchair lift and try to sell it on CG or ebay. Has anyone done that? I bet we can get maybe a couple hundred.
- most of the seats are missing so that's good for us because we will be storing all of our gear in it when on the road. We are going to over-hall the bus with a good cleaning and make some bunks in the middle of the bus and maybe a high bed in the back where you can put gear underneath
We don't have big plans at the moment to put any type of kitchen or small toilet area but maybe in the future.
We still need to transfer over the title to an RV from a bus and insure it. We got a really cheap quote from GMAC but will get a couple more.
Here are some outside pics we have. I will get better inside pics very soon and keep updating every time we work on it. We need it to be up and running legally in about 2 weeks so we should be working fast.
Hope you all like it!
