that is a unusual find never seen that style on a ford chassis out here, mechanically, the bus should be very close to a large ford truck, f750 or 800, tune up parts and things like belts hoses ect are available in a good parts store, may have to overnite them, carquest, napa ect have this ability,, things like brake parts are a little harder to find, but still out there may have to search ebay ect for them, you need to take it apart and measure the brake shoes, there is more than 1 size, im sure the bus has hydroboost on the brakes, a kit is out there to rebuild that i have one on my desk for a 57 chevy now,for seals ect remove the seal and take it to a good parts store, all seals have a number on them which will cross to whichever brand that store handles, good luck !

Nice and unique find. That Chevy chassis is likely a 60, 70 series and driveline parts should be easy to come by. I can"t tell by the pics if that has the old split rims, but 22.5 drop centers are available in that bolt pattern to allow you to run tubeless radials. Please post pictures of your progress, and let us know what drive train that has. If it has air brakes, I"d look at converting to the S cam style vs the wedge type of that vintage. Good luck with your new toy!
