Build sheet available?

Wasn't quite sure where to put this, so it landed here. In prior posts about decoding vin online I've learned in order to find out tranny you need to contact manufacturer and supply vin. If I'm looking at a bluebird, will bluebird supply me with a build sheet if requested? Or is there some way to obtain one to find out more info on out of state bus?

I e-mailed the customer service contact on their site but haven't heard anything yet

Edit: is there a common pairing used with the c7 cat in 2005? Or anyone know what might come with it on a 12 window

Build sheet for what? We don't know what you are driving. Fill in the profile by hitting user CP on upper left.

I'm looking to purchase one that is out of state. The ad has limited info, so I'm trying to figure out what I can from the vin until I hear back from seller. I would buy it this weekend if if the transmission and gearing is good, but vin decoder won't give me that info, so I'm trying to figure out what it might have. It's an 05 bluebird 12window with cat c7 engine

I sent en email to bluebird requesting the information on the vehicle, but haven't heard back and wasn't sure they even supply that information

a build sheet, as i know it to be called, is a list of everything equipped on a vehicle. ive gotten them for a regular passenger vehicle before

Was emailing blue bird the right way to go about finding the information? Is there a quicker way since I haven't gotten a response? Any ideas?

I'm surprised that that manufacturer hasn't gotten back to you about a used vehicle sale.

It's almost as if they know you won't be their customer again and are asking them to do free work for a prospective used vehicle sale.

I wouldn't be surprised if they stopped answering all requests for information from us 3rd party ilk.

What are you hoping the manufacturer can tell you that the seller or going to look at the bus can't tell you? go read the tags, it tells you all you need to know.

Manufacturer would insure seller gave me correct info and it would help to avoid an out of state trip that could be unnecessary. Added peace of mind

I was told by members on the forum in other posts to contact manufacturer to get that information, so that's what I did. Your reply seems to say im dumb for thinking they would do that but I'm just doing what people here recommended me to

Dude- what did I say to you that would in any way be calling you dumb?
You asked a question, I gave you my best answer.

Your post wasn't there when I typed reply, rustys semi sarcastic post about manufacturer not helping is what o referred to. I figured they would help since people have told me the manufacturer will give you that info
