Re: Chassis ID



You should have a plate or sticker similar to this somewhere on your bus, usually somewhere near the driver's seat.
On mine it's above the window next to the driver's seat.

The plate, or one of the plates if you have more than one, like mine, will be an entry labelled "INC VEHICLE MFD BY:" which of course will be followed by the name of the manufacturer of the chassis or 'incomplete vehicle'.

In the right photo above it's the second entry on the left side pf the plate - you can see my 'incomplete vehicle' was manufacted by Thomas, so they built the thing from the ground up.

I didn't have any luck contacting Bluebird either. Find out who the closest dealer is and try going through them. The dealer I contacted was even able to get me the wiring diagram for my bus.

somewhereinusa -
Doesn't your bus have a plate like in my pics? I wasn't sure if it was the same for Bluebirds or not.

Re: Chassis ID

Yes, It has the plates, all over the place. They have much info, but if plates are missing, all of the info should be available from Vin#. When I was looking for a bus I found the Thomas factory very helpful with info. Apparently Bluebird wants you to go through a dealer. All I used for the wiring request was the Vin#.
