Good day everyone. First time to lay some ink on this site . . . .   

If y'all would be so kind I need a little help.  I have a chance to purchase a 1974 Twin Coach 28' Shuttle Bus that has been very nicely converted to a motor home w/a 440 Dodge and 4 speed Alison Transmission, but am not sure of the availability of parts for the chassis, brakes, hubs, bearings, steering gear, etc.  I hve checked with a few local heavy truck/bus repair facilities here in Houston, but have hit a brick wall.

Anyone w/knowledge of this dinosaur?  . . . A promise of Klondike bars for all who aid this frustrated soul. Thanks, JT

Hi JT, You might have gone to the wrong folks, Try the Dodge dealers down there. The question is does it need parts right now? Try call'n this person. Has a unit like you described for sale out in SoCal.  & phis 714.540.4381 &cell is 949.285.6530 . If anything they might have a parts experience they can tell of. Theirs is 7K.  Good Luck JT, & no thanks on the Kbars... That's sweet though JT. I just tried to pull the craigslist link here on GORVs, didn't come up, try a direct line to OCCL/rvs/TwinCoach

Randall, My Good Man, Thanks for the reply . . . That bus in Orange Count is the one I'm interested in purchasing, but I'm not set up to work on that monster myself , therein the rub.

Thanks again . . . . JT

Your welcome JT.
