Need some advice.

Good evening everyone!

I am going to be purchasing a 1974 crown (I believe supercoach) it has 8 total wheels and a beautiful stainless steel siding piece that is between the windows and the lower compartments. This was an old military bus and I haven't seen any like it in pictures on the internet. If there is anyone here that is really knowledgeable about crowns I would love to learn more and can use all the help I can get as I embark on the conversion process of restoring this beauty and getting her back on the road as a livable unit. I'm very excited and appreciate everyone's help in advance!

I am going to say try and find "Cowlitzcoach" he is a wealth of knowledge. There are also some crown guys on the forum that are really good with crown specific information.
Sounds like a cool bus, good luck!

Welcome

Nice choice. Yes there's some Crown guys here. I understand that's quite a challenging build.

Thank you. I uploaded some pictures. It has a 5 speed manual with a Detroit Disel.
