Been down this road- can go smooth...or not. Verify before you pay- in person.

I bought a MG TD for $300 from a guy I worked with in Palm Springs- he lost the title... I had that sucker stripped and the frame being blasted.

Got a knock on the door a year later- was Police- turns-out car was a Palm Springs Municipal Court Judge's car he was having my buddy restore.

Police: "You have a MG TD in the garage?"

Me: "No, most of one..."

They came with a flatbed and loaded-off all the tin/motor/trans and few boxes of bits. Didn't get in any trouble, but was out $300.

Good luck! have fun.

Insurance after conversion. I knew a guy that built his own tow truck and never got insurance on it. Looks cool.

Anyhoo... Welcome!

Dayton wheels are bad news. Are you buying this beast dirt-cheap?

Of course, a 466 with stick....

Why do you believe the transmission needs some sort of bushing?
elliot - dayton wheels are NOT bad news.. split rims are bad news.. thgat bus is daytons but not split rims... plewnty of daytons still out there that work just fine and are not time bombs.. no reason to change them out... they are tubeless tires like any other bus.. my DEV bus has daytons and runs standard 11R22.5 truck tires.. no tubes, no splits, no issues..

Daytons or budds... Either will do. I like Daytons but like the look of the budds.

Ok, got insurance on the hook with progressive, 115 to start and 56.32 monthly for 9 additional payments (but it is year long policy). Yalls replies have been nothing but wonderful. I still need tech info for swap, im just not sure if the daytons fit my look im tryin to achieve. I know its minuscule, but still.. anyone know if earlier or later hubs (outside of the brakes) will swap? Got a line on an earlier bus for parts with 10 lug drums, 3 years difference. Hoping itl work

Ok, now i need yet more help. What sells on buses, aside from scrap metal, motor, trans, and the rolling chassis? Got it on insutance with a temp tag! Go through your local insurance company, go in there and get insurance. Much easier than calling main sources! Thanks to all in advance

depending on the bus, the engine computers, tires if they are good, Gauige clusters if they are good, air-conditioning parts.. windsheilds if they are not cracked and esp if they are curved.. rear end and gears, air brake compressors, alternator, asll things that to me would sell if you are parting out a bus.
