Re: Workshop Conversion

scrap value is about what they auction for.

it depends on the price of steel, but you could do better than $0.10/lb for a bus ....imo.

Re: Workshop Conversion

There is a lot of tc/2000s set for retirement this year due to age limits set by states. Conventionals are common and cheap, it should be about 2.5k for one work low miles and the right engine. The carpenter re's emergency door is more than 6 feet of the ground. I have been looking for one of them, but I never see them for sale. The scrap value of a full size bus is about 2500, about what they sell for at auction. The door of the bus will be taller then the truck, so a wheelchair lift should be a requirement. You should be able to score a tc2000 for below 2500 at auction, so just keep looking if you don't get the first one, a lot of buses should come up for auction in the next few weeks since school is ending.
