Question Newbie! Anyone know what kind of bus this is?

A little background first I suppose I finally think I found a great deal, but now I might not be too sure. A bus that is about three hours away from me popped up on Craigslist at a great price. Trouble is, the owner is very old and can't remember anything about the bus, so the daughter is selling it, and is not sure what kind of bus it is. She is also recovering the Title from CA, so can't just take it out and look at it. Anyways, I really like to do my research before driving to see it, but don't know where to start. I thought I might try to ask on here. Thanks!!

It's not a Bluebird. Pretty sure it's not a Thomas. Owner should be able to tell from ID tags, should be posted inside. What year is it?

Oh, I found this photo of a bus on here too, looks quite similar. Unfortunately, I think the OP in that thread wasn't sure about his bus either.

Ive come across some similar listings. Older folks or their kids selling buses that have been sitting for a long time. Usually they think its worth a lot more than it is.
I wouldn't fool around with it at all till they have a clear title in hand. Ask the seller for pics. Ask them to see the manufacturer plates.

That would be a 1967 Superior Super Cruiser, a rare find indeed.

A little info on this page.

Looks like mostly they used GMC drive lines, which would make it easy to find parts for if it needs mechanical repair.
