1997 Bluebird Transhuttle


Just purchased this bus for a conversion. 1997 Bluebird C1FE. The land is out in the woods, off-grid, with a 45 mile view to Mt Washington NH and the White Mountains (cant really see it in the camera). Runs and drives good, 5.9 cummins. Was not exactly what I was looking for but had some cool features that won my heart like 132" wheelbase, sliding/flip out windows, big back/side door, Price, location, and overall condition. I hope it is ok to put a link here for a video made on a gopro camera. Thank

Re: 1997 Bluebird Transhuttle

Hey Drew --- welcome to the funny farm! Really cool platform you found there. Should make an excellent conversion. Just the fact that it is a Bird with a 6 hole Cummins is enough to get me going. Is it a 6BT? (turbo)...Allison trans?

Don't hesitate to take advantage of the collective experience on this great forum and ask questions, there are some seriously hard core converters here who've just about done it all. Congratulations, best of luck and please do keep the pix coming.
