Bus For Sale

Unless he's selling it REALLY cheap ($200) it's a huge gamble. Did he give you a price? Just towing it out of there will cost more than the bus is worth.

Yes, ohhh myyyyy is right. That's how it looks.

As for asking price, I'll quote from my initial post:
Quote:
The guy thinks he wants $4,000 for it. I think he's nuts. But he is moving to Hawaii and needs to get rid of it. So I'm thinking he will surely accept far less.
You may be entirely right that free is the only realistic price.

Again, I'm posting this at arm's length.

This came about because he also has a Dodge pickup for sale that I was interested in. The Dodge was hit in the bed by an errant car right in his driveway, and he bought a replacement truck while the Dodge just sat. So I was thinking "serious bargain" on the Dodge.

He also has a vintage travel trailer that a friend of mine might be interested in. Again, butter him up and get a deal on the trailer.

And at the same time help the fellow sell these vehicles so he can move.

He is talking about walking away from the house. If I understood him right, his mortgage is somehow related to the county, and the county would wind up owning the house. That might be the time to pick up this bus!

Time will tell.

$2000 is a fair price for the bus from others I have seen. People really like the 4106. This one is rough but could be saved.

It's really not that bad as 4106's go. That is probably a 6 cylinder engine. I had a 1969 and it got 10mpg on the freeway. 4 speed manual transmission with a wet clutch. If it can be made to run and drive it's worth $4k. If it won't run it's scrap metal right now.

It's "down on it's bags" right now with the air suspension deflated. They are generally a reliable rig. The ball joints etc can be intimidating to work on. God forbid you crack a transmission case or something awful like that..... they are pure unobtanium. That shouldn't happen though as they are built like tanks.

Detroit Diesels all smoke a bit and all dribble a bit and if it is not leaking oil it's probably out of oil and won't be running for long. Accept what you cannot change.

While I currently own a Neoplan with an 8cyl turbo /blown detroit..... I would rather have the lower power engine. Less to go wrong and easier to keep running. Very easy engine to service. The one I have is okay, very low miles though.

This one is an 8-cylinder. I believe it is called an 8V71. No turbocharger, though.

I'm trying to impress on Chris the importance of getting the bus running, in order to sell it.
Today, a good friend of mine bought his Dodge pickup, so perhaps Chris will now take my suggestions more seriously and dust off his tool box. And he now has cash for fuel filters and whatever else it needs.

Offer him a real low price ($400) because it is not running and see if he bites. Even if you find it's not able to be repaired you can recoup that cost for the scrap or part it out.

SOLD
It relocated only 12 blocks, but it now has fresh registration, so I suppose it is actually sold.
