Here's the beginning of our conversion project:
96 International 3800, Thomas chassis, 22 seats, 11 windows.
57,000 Miles, DT466, 5 speed manual Spicer transmission, 4.44 Rear end.
No school bus lighting or wiring to contend with, 78" ceilings, floor is mat over metal (no plywood).
Tape deck/AM-FM radio, exhaust brake, brakes pads are new, tires look very good.
Seller threw in a new clutch that he had around the shop as a spare part. New manuals.
Seems to be governed at 60 mph in 5th gear with pedal to the floor.
Fuel tank looks small, I know some of his other buses had 35 gallon tanks and I hope that's not the case with this one. I cannot find a tag on the tank anywhere.
Standard skoolie conversion for Alaska travel and possible lower 48 trip next year, ski hauler?? We need more sleeping space than anything else.
Progress so far:
My crew got most of the seats out in a few hours. They came out a lot easier than the seats in our previous short bus.
