Doubling-Down With Bus #2

Just bought the shorty I've been wanting. Sorta. I WANTED a 466 5 window with air brakes and a manual or auto with o/d.
But I live and work in Central Florida, so a 444E with 545 trans will do just FINE! Its got a 4.10 rear, "190 or 210 HP", and the tires were replaced in mid 2015. New fronts retread rears. WC lift, 12 seater. Am/FM CD... BLING!





Only minor inconvenience is its in Aurora Colorado.

Whatever happened to those International shorties in West Virginia that had the T444E and the 5 spd Spicers? As I recall the auctions did not hit reserve and the districts did not relist the buses.

I was bidding on a few of them but wasn't willing to find out what the reserve was after bidding went over $3K.

I tried reasoning with them up there in WV.
I'd much rather have a CO bus anyway. THis one has more hp than my big bus, and highway gears.

Thanks, will do!
I'm sending a neighbor to go pick it up. Says he's going next week, so it may even be here for the bus party.
The folks at the school district are really cool and they've overnighted me the title and bill of sale, so I can have it tagged and insured for the return trip.

Oh, and did I tell yall the price? 1780 out the door! WOOHOO!

I thought about buying two, but had to show some restraint due to the logistics.
