Well we drove it around today! Ugh the batteries were dead and I had to have AAA come jump the starter and stuff it took forever and these other two guys were there interested as well and my offer of 1k has been surpassed. :/ I don't see the bus as a serious possibility right now but I am still hopeful.

On a school bus, I'd rather have the heavier engine.

Thread Closed, Bus Purchased not by me.

Thanks for all the helpful info and time spent. My offer was out-bid. Love this community and I will definitely buy a bus in the future, this just wasn't the right time. <3

It is unfortunate that you did not get that Crown. Keep looking as they are around. I doubt you will find one for the asking price of $1,000. By the way, what did it actually go for?
