Asking for input

Need some input if not to much trouble.

I found one close -3 hours

1996 Chevrolet B7 Bluebird school bus
140,870 miles on odometer
6.0L V8 gas engine
Automatic
8 windows

Should not bring much. But much is relative in the long term.


Is this a walk away from.

Rated Cap: 20? five rows of 4?
my thoughts

This is the least expensive bus drive line to repair/replace. Brand new engines, not rebuilds, can be had for $3000. transmissions rebuild $800.

I can go on and on, but repair expense for this will be the lowest of them all.

This is more passenger van or pickup truck than medium duty truck. I am pretty certain vans like this for $1500.... so a bus should be around the same. but maybe a bit more.

I reckon I’ll keep looking for that pot of gold.
Going to high for what it is.
Reading the subject here matter sure helps me wait for the one I’m looking for.
