I see that all your info is filled in under your avatar.
But your location has me puzzled?
Is that Northern Kentucky?
Or a UK country? Etc..

Love the area.
I don't have the a Wayne but I did do a quick research and found that Wayne was going out of business in 1990 and if you have a 91 model then any school bus parts body parts could have been created buy MID-BUS who Wayne sold everything to.
In my head you have a long, flat bed Chevy truck with a Chevy suspension to handle the load and I can say I love a Chevy 350 and you have many upgrade options But I would think its a little small.
Motor and chassis (brakes,hoses,fluids,filters,fluids,lines)wise are all Chevy parts and most available at any auto parts stores.
Body wise between 90 and 91 Wayne bodies sold to MidBus so I would look for 80's-92 mid bus parts? (My opinion)
Cause MidBus probably isn't going to RE-ENGINEER a system that is approved and in production in a few years?
Just my opinion?
Exactly what parts are you looking for?
There might be others here that can help

at onbe time there was a bus junkyard in lebanon ohio. and I know there were a couple Waynes in there.. not sure if the same wayne parts that are on standard conventionals would fit yours or not..

paul's equipment (the dude is a bit of a pain) in NE ohio has a lot of carpenter stuff and I think he said there was a wayne or two in there when i talked to him last year...

Wayne out of business and sold to Midbus in 90-91? Did they continue to build under the Wayne name? I have a 96 Wayne on an Intl 3800. I can't find anything on it that says Midbus.

Richmond Transportation Corporation (RTC/Wayne) declared bankruptcy in August 1992, with the company put up for auction.

they built Waynr Lifeguard busses less than an hour from me up into the mid 90s.. I thinkl they rented space from hoinda and built the min marysville ohio.. i know i was seeing brand new waynes coming down the highway well after 1992..

schools in ohio ran a ton of waynes back in the day.. I still see one occasionally on a route... paul's equipment in ohio might be a source of parts.. he has a lot of carpenter stuff and I remember some wayne 18 months ago or so..

That's good to know. I've been looking for a place that would have weatherstrip for the front door. Hard to locate but the rear and side door weatherstriping looks to be fairly generic.

Wayne Windshield

Looking for a Wayne school bus windshield. They made these windshields from 1954 to 1972. Doesn't matter which manufacturer, they were the same windshield. Thanks!
