My First Post!
Sunday i just took possession of a 1968 Bluebird Ford F600 (Really its a B600) Schoolbus. Pics at http://www.trolleybus.ca/bus
The bus runs quite well. right now it's still sitting at my friends yard where its been sitting in that spot for 3 years and 7 years at another. the engine started in about 10 seconds and the transmission does engage and the bus wants to go but the ruts are deap and we will have to use the bobcat to help us pull it out. The tires are still full of air though!.
Bus hasnt been on the road since at least 95 from what i see on the registration.
Best thing of all, IT WAS FREE!!!!
BTW I'm in Alberta canada, I heard that motorhomes do not require an inspection for insurance purposes? Is this correct? This bus was last registered as a class 3 vehicle - Motorhome from what the registration shows me. Can anybody confirm this and if its true, damn awesome!!!
Also does anyone know any cheap insurance companies that insure motorhome conversions? I don't plan to use this at all this year except might want to just take the bus for a drive adn i am hoping to drive it from it's current site to a new site whenever i find one where i will be able to work on it.
I am posting my own post on the bus at http://www.skoolie.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3379
