School districts around here try to get rid of buses at around 15-17 years. This bus would have been dumped at 28 years. I question the claim, and thus question also the claim of the rebuild. Does he have receipts?
And 3.5 million miles? If he wants $500 and the tires are good you might take a gamble with a mechanic's visit. At worst, if it would limp to the scrapyard you could sell them the steel, and keep and resell the tires and make a profit. But otherwise? I'm worried.
I also don't know what I'm talking about, btw. Raw noob.
