1956 Crown Bus partially converted

1956 Crown Bus - 36 ft, partially converted to a motor home. It has a 1987 Ford L900 Semi Cummins L10 diesel engine and manual transmission put in it. The engine was running great back 2002 when it was taken out of the truck and placed in the bus (the engine has apprx 180,000 miles on it). It is partially hooked up. Airride is in. It is a single axel in the back with dually's. It is rough-framed in the inside - bathroom, kitchen, etc. The outside just needs to be painted. We have all the paint for it already. This project was a dream of our fatherís, but they are downsizing and moving and are not able to bring the bus to continue work on it. We are hoping to get at least $3,000 for it, but are willing to consider all offers. Have title. Pictures are available upon request. Please call or text me at 320-630-4421.

(Sorry, but my picture failed to load on this thread).

Photos need to go through imgur or photobucket before they'll load here.

That sounds like a nice deal.

How does a person do that?

If you go here
Photo and image hosting, free photo galleries, photo editing
you can create an account for free, then you can upload and store any pics you want to share on the forum. Imgur also apparently works fine. My guess is this process protects the site from viruses.

Once on the site after you've uploaded pics you browse your library of pics and select one you want to post. When the pic has loaded there is a share button near the top right of your photo that you click. It loads onto the clipboard from that button, then you just click into your text on the skoolie forum and paste where you want it. Do a practice pic to make sure it works first. I was finally told how to do this a couple days ago. I had part of it right, just not enough.

Good luck.

Simple right?

Even after registration with the photo site is done, you can see it's still kind of a pain to post pics. Photos are one of the most common ways to spread viruses.

New users can't post links without approval in the beginning to prevent spam. After a certaain number off post, the system allows it.

That's the unfortunate part. I hope we find it a good home. It would be nice to see someone want to continue on with it versus someone buying it for parts. I finally got a picture to post in a different reply message.

plus trying to make a transplant drivetrain work... just ask tango about that.. even if that engine is sitting in that bus it doesnt mean its hooked up fully and ready to run... and without a lot of careful observations.. it may be that it wont work correctly and thus the project ceased..

the RV peoprion looks like its going well.. but that transplant would bother me unless theres lots of info out there on the net that its been tried before
