Yea, sumptin maybe fishy about that auction.
Was listed in Nov. NO RESERVE 1951 International L160 Short School Bus Wayne Body Parked Since 1965 | eBay

A bidder that only ever bid on that bus was the high bidder at $15k.

I figure either the high bidder was a shill or a deadbeat bidder.

Sitting 50 years, that "newly" rebuilt motor is gonna need ANOTHER rebuild before you can even think about cranking it.

I don't claim to know much about old engines but it seems like it was missing a few things.... most obviously an air cleaner assembly (unless it was located elsewhere).
