Ceiling height verification

Hey All -- Just a quick question. I'm looking at a couple buses up for auction, but they are out of town. Can someone verify for me that the image of the bus in this post is definitely one of the taller ceiling buses? (I think I've read 6'8" or so? My understanding is the tall windows indicate the taller ceiling height, but I haven't actually been inside one to verify.) Do I have this right? Thanks!

Its probably more like 6'4 or 6'6 but you could ask the contact at the bus yard through the auction.
I saw those pop up today. Nice looking buses!!!

Thanks. Just verified w/ the bus yard, and it looks like my understanding wasn't really correct at all. They said it is only 74".... Same as another bus that I was looking at that doesn't have the taller windows. Bummer. They do look nice, but won't fit my husband or son...

Maybe we should reconsider the roof raise. Sounds daunting. ;)

The most challenging part of a roof raise is reskinning the bus afterwards. The raise itself isn't nearly as tough as it would seem as long as you have someone who can weld the new supports in.
