Hello from wv.

Hello from wv, just purchased a 1987 bluebird flat nose bus. I'm in full conversion mode. Here's a few pictures..

Thanks! Can anyone connect me with a parts source? It's a 1987 blue bird. I have no idea what chassis is under it. But I do know it has a 427 gasses engine. I need to locate power steering parts and transmission gaskets.

No idea on the parts, I'd just use google.
What kind of MPG's do you get?

No idea on Mpg's yet. The drive home was nerve racking enough. We woke her up after sitting for 3 years. Greased all the fittings we could find. checked the oil. filled her up with gas and drove 500 miles home on the edge of our seats. Wow ! only problems so far the leaking power steering gearbox and small leak around the shift linkage on the side of the transmission.
