Hi Rick,

I'm repowering a 1963 Flxible Starliner with a Cummins ISC 350HP and Allison 6 speed. You can see details at CreativeCruiser.com

Thanks for posting pics. Please post progress reports somewhere.

Here are some other sites you might find to be useful:
Flxible Owners International
FlxForums
There's also a yahoo group dedicated to Flxibles.

Here's a shot of my bus:
