Thats a great collection of early SP's!
Years ago there was one in Q every year,selling "blu blocker" sun glasses.

Mine was the two tone green and white from the factory,i think.
It just may get repainted that same color.

Randy, you know how to make your LXI disappear? Park your SP next to it.

I do enjoy seeing these cool busses Wanderloge made so many years ago. Nice to appreciate how they led the industry.

Its not raining today so i got to look it over a little better,He got it here on thursday,it was aired up.
Its still aired up,the bags have not gone down at all.
the front has 2 bags,and 4 shocks.
The rear has 4 bags.
Its a 3 link setup on the front,1 on each side,and one in the middle,going forward.

The rear has a square frame bolted to the axle housing,the frame goes forward and back about 5' maybe,each end of the frame has an air bag.
Theres a panhard bar to keep it located side to side,and 2 bars going back to keep it located front to back.

I measure the engine bay,front to back.
I measured the 8.3 Cummins,front to back.
It will fit perfectly.
The air compressor on the big ford is on the curb side,the Cummins air compressor will be on the curb side,same deal with the PS pumps.
Looks easy so far.
I need an air throttle/cruise control setup.
and an extension harness for the shift pad.

One thing i noticed,this coach does not have levelers,fine with me!
