In Spokane, WA Spalding Automotive has a few various busses, mostly Blue Bird and a couple Amtran. Also a couple late 70s or early 80s as well. All for parts only as the newer ones were part of the recycling program with the school districts.

This would be awesome. I know I'd use it.

No website, just name address & phone (I had enough sense to write down the hours open since they are closed on weekends). This guy just buys them up when they are auctioned off (David chatted him up while dickering over the price of the rims). I saw a nice Bluebird All-American there that I would love to have. Just need hubby to call and find out price.....
Could you provide the information so that others could use the resource as
well? Thank you

OP's last site activity was 3 years ago.
Would be awfully nice to have a one-stop to shop pick-a-part...

The place she is referring to doesn't exist. Wades Garage is probably the biggest and he has maybe 100 buses, mostly BlueBirds, no Internationals.

Well, that's something, any way. Good gouge for the next noob who sails into this Sargasso Sea of a thread!

Hey guys! I need a few pieces for my underbody. Straps and such to mount a few things. I am in need in San Diego. Bus yards, Truck yards, maybe even marine yards? Ive been doing some googles, Im just not savy i this field yet I guess. Im used to smaller mechanical needs.

Drive Shaft U-Bolts

Somehow, I'm missing a drive shaft u-bolt on my 1990 Chevy C6500. I'm in Texas and don't know of any yards with buses. Anyone know of one in Texas?

It's a standard part -- remove the other U-bolt and go to NAPA or similar and buy TWO of them. I wouldn't use the remaining one if it's been driven on with the other one missing -- could possibly be compromised from stress.
