Thoughts on this bus?

What do you all think? Not much rust in the pics, no mentions of rust in the description, and I've heard good things about most busses coming from CO... Not sure if it's hydraulic or air brakes, prefer air, but not 100% refusing to get hydraulic either.

Thanks ! looks like a great bus- will be bidding.

5.9L 12v Cummins won't see much love on this board for full sized bus. Surprised to see it in mountainous Colorado.

I was bidding on several of their other vehicles they just sold, all were specc'd with big motors and driveline brakes. These few buses must have been the flatlanders.

Don't count those old 5.9's out. You just gotta know how to drive them.

The bus looks pretty clean from the pics.

Loveland ski area is different then Loveland the town. Loveland the town is mostly flat unless the bus did a route into the foothills.
