I am having technical problems lol. She is 50 + and recently had to have her Detroit Diesel pulled and replaced with a Cummins. Love her patriotic paint job. Enjoy this grand ol' girl.

I'm familiar with Blue Birds. That does not resemble any Blue Bird I've seen. It looks to be a bus conversion, not that it matters. It looks great, whatever it is.

X+2, I'm pretty certain it's an Eagle bus conversion as well.

Update, got to speak with her owners and yes she is an eagle bus conversion and she is a young 47 yrs. Her owner has done a beautiful conversion, pretty much fully electric and even has a trash compactor...also a to die for kitchen sink. Spaces are well utilized and very well thought out. I feel honored to have been able to see her.

That is a converted Silver Eagle Bus. Those were the mainstay of busses for years. Also many many music stars toured in them which were converted. Timeless Classic Coach.

That is an 05 eagle bus. It has a 10 front cap and newer aluminum siding. It also has torsilastic suspension. They ride like a dream. The original engine, was a Detroit 8V-71 2cycle engine. Used lots of oil
