The bus has been sitting at my girlfriends grandfathers body shop since we met and i asked him about it he said his friend put it there 25+ years ago. As far as we all know his friend who previously owned the bus is now deceased. and Im trying to figure out how i would get the title.

See, now THAT is a story.

If you can get inside the bus, it will have a stamped ID plate on it with the VIN. It may be in a few places, but look around driver's area/firewall/above windshield.

Post some pics when you get a chance. Welcome !

not sure in your state, but if the person is deceased and it was parked on someone elses property, that person can file for a mechanics lien.. stating in some way that there was work done to it or rent for the space wasnt payed, etc.. a letter will be sent to the last knowmn owner.. or in this case an estate. if no response is returned within i think 30 or 60 days then they do a search for the person or estate and try to contact.. 99% of the time unless its some restored classic no one wants anything to do with it.. then the state will issue a title to the property owner who filed the lien.. and then the ycan transfer it to you...

I did this in Ohio with one of the hotrods I built years ago... took a few months but i got a clear non-salvage title for it.

Is the body solid enough to put all this time and money into?

If this bus is in TN (as your profile indicates), I would see if just a hand-written bill of sale would be enough. As long as the VIN isn't showing stolen, no one looks too deeply into the vehicle history. I know in GA, a bill of sale is fine for anything 1985 or older. Anything 86 and up requires a title.

Look under the hood, on the firewall for a VIN from IH (probably on the "passenger" side).
