hey welcome, great to have you.
I recently bought a 50 chevy, not sure it even matters what you buy.
I know alot of people are brand sensitive
I'm a chevy guy but that's what I know, not nocking anybody else ok
hey if you have experience working on a chevy get one, ford, international ect.
The point is that you understand it enough to keep it going!!!!!
I have not started my project yet, there are plenty of guys here that have not bought a bus yet,
Just have a plan of action first,
I'm still at the planning stage myself. want to think it through first buy my supplies then attack it.
good luck if I can help let me know
