84 Thomas bus

Hi I am new here to this place. I am trying to buy a 1984 Thomas bus that needs the drive shaft and bolts replaced. Where would I go about trying to find these and how much are we looking at?? Any help is well appreciated. Thank you

If it was me looking at said bus, I'd want to know why it needs these parts.

Were they removed for towing and "lost" in the process, or???

If they broke somehow, there could be more underlying issues mechanically.

Good luck, and post more info if you still need advice...
