I won a bus

Well I finally got a deal. This 04 THOMAS MPV with a Cat engine. Won it for $2425. Found a one way flight from Atl. to OKC for $85, figure $250 in fuel home and I'll be on the property for less than $2800. As mentioned, it will be called "The Bucket List". Now I need to find a surplus rear door.

You are assuming on the tranny? I didn't see any tranny info.

when I blew the pic up it "looked" like an over drive shifter.. plus by 04 I believe everything was allison 2000. or 3000 (this one isnt a 3000)..

regardless it looks like someone's Bucket List is about to start gettin checked off!!!!!

Got it, didn't think to look at the dash for the shifter.
The contact persons phone was busy until the end of the auction (convenient), then I got sent to their voice mail, so haven't gotten any questions answered.
