Re: 1993 bluebird

I think it's a great bus.

what are you planning on using it for?

What engine/trans combo do you have? Do you know what gear ratio you have? There's a plaque by the front door above the windshield (inside) that should tell ya.

Re: 1993 bluebird

Thanks for the reply
my engine is a 3116 catapillar 215 hp and the transmission is an allyson. We are storing it elsewhere so I will have to get back to you on the transmission details and the gear ratio.
My wife and I plan on road tripping with it- our first trip will be from Alaska to West Virginia.

Re: 1993 bluebird

Is that a rear engine bus?

Do you have any pictures? Sounds like a nice bus.

Re: 1993 bluebird

We picked it up from a guy- it was parked in his yard just outside of Fairbanks AK. We paid 5200.00 for it, personally I think it was a great deal- but then again I know nothing about buses .
