Is $5000 a good deal for this bus?

we're planning to get this bus from Greg at Florida church bus and just wanted to ask if the price is right or if we should offer less? Here's the link http://www.floridachurchbus.com/91genes ... getwo.html

Thanks

Rust never sleeps....just remember that.

The 84 passenger comes with a DT466 and MT643 for the same price. That might be worth atleast looking in to.

That door and stairs are rustier than the ones on my 1972 Ward were when I bought it. The rest of the bus looks great though.

The rust can be delt with though take a look at the pictures of what I did to fix it.

As you can see in the pictures the rust wasn't even really visible until I took out the rubber stair covers.

What would be the benefit of the DT466 and MT643 combo? Any difference in fuel economy? Does the rust on the original look like it would be tough to clean up?

I used a wire wheel on rotary tool to remove all the rust and then used a self etching primer before the white paint. Also that carpeting is actually bathroom carpet mats with a rubber backing that way if people walk on with wet or snowy shoes the water will not soak through the carpet to the metal.
