Re: 84 Thomas - The Yankeflyer

hope people realize what a great drive train you have there..
and
what it would cost just to change out the rear end like you did...

There are three of these buses on ebay - Chey49 ya thanks - swapping out the axle was a team effort. I have too many projects but the starting bid for the buses is 2000 bucks - there may be a good deal there.

Re: 84 Thomas - The Yankeflyer

These CNG John Deer powered Bluebirds would make a great project bus - wish I could afford one. Oh ya all the bidders exept one are first time bidders and the bidding is at $2300 and less on the buses.

Re: 84 Thomas - The Yankeflyer

$3500 to $3800 is the going going gone price right now with about three and a half hours to go. If your bidding on one of these you probley don`t appreciate the my interest but these buses are the best skoolie package for a project I`ve seen yet. If I had $4000 I would try and get one and its not like I don`t have one.

Re: 84 Thomas - The Yankeflyer

Well the bidding was pretty furious at the end-most of the bidders were brand-new eBayers just for this auction
I didn't keep track of the other two buses but I'm guessing they went for pretty much the same price as these two kind of expensive by in. But to be able to operate at least in my part of the country for under two dollars a gallon fuel costs.

So as I ponder my future - Those CNG buses went for way more than I would have guessed. Still those buses are what I want my bus to be. Old Cat engines like mine can only run 50 to 60% CNG and thats just not good enough. So maybe I need to learn how to make my 3208 T run on CNG only.
