Default 66 FC31 Restoration

My son just bought a 1966 FC61 as a restoration project. Someone had partially gutted many areas searching for a roof leak and disconnected many interior control panels. If anyone has wiring diagrams for this beast it would really be appreciated.

Just think about it in 1966 I was still a virgin. We gotta help this fellow keep this old bird on the road. The older a fellow gets the more pleasure he sees in seeing old stuff still up and running. Makes him feel there is still hope for himself as well as the old equipment. And I mean equipment in it's broadest meaning.

I have an old wiring print of my 69 somewhere, I will see if I can find it and get a copy mad if you think it would help. I did so much re-wiring in mine, I did not use it much.

Looks like the son has abandoned the 66 bird in my backyard. Anybody know I can find the VIN on this beast?
I will need it to get title and start restoring.

Look just above the doghouse on the dash or above the drivers head on the left. On the older busses they use the body number. On my old '63 it is a 5 digit number.

I wasn't too far out of diapers!

When you get a minute, please fill out the signature part of your info!

We look forward to seeing some pictures of the 'ol 66...
