VIN help?

Hey gang, itís been a while. I bought another school bus and Iíve had a tough time tracking down some info on it. My apologies if this is on the wrong forum, admins, please message if thereís a better place.

I bought an 02 Bluebird on a Chevy chassis. It has an Allison auto, hydraulic brakes and a Cat 3126. Iím not sure which Allison it is or what series the chassis is. Iíve found a vin decoder to 2007 and newer and one for older ones but not one that covers mine apparently, mine has number where the others have letters and vice versa. Itís a forward engine type. Iím not sure if this is a ďtcĒ based bus or an ďall AmericanĒ etc or a 3707-3808, etc...i havenít found anything on this bus other than the vin and Iím not sure how to order parts.

My vin is
1gbl7t1c72j509572

Anyone has any thoughts, Iíd be super grateful!

Happy Coolie Skoolie!

Alex

Alex,

If you call your nearest Bluebird dealer with the "body number " from the plaque above the driver, they can tell you all about your bus.

That doesn't seem to tell much. Sorry.

Ah ok, there was recently a real nice, minty 2002 GMC with that setup on PS or GD.
Nice bus.
