Seems a tad on the high side. What does the body rust look like?

No rust. The body is primarily aluminum.

8 cylinders? The only Crown buses with 8 cylinder engines were the Atomics and tour buses with rear 8V71s.

The vintage suggests to me that it is a 6-71T, 6-71TA, or perhaps a 6-71TAC.

I don't think any of the Crowns with 6-71's after about 1978 didn't have at least a turbo.

The model of the bus should tell the story.

If it is an A-426-11 it would not have a turbo. HP rating would be about 210-225 HP.

If it is an A-426T-11 it would have a turbo. HP rating would be about 230-250 HP.

If it is an A-426TAC-11 it would have a turbo with an after cooler. HP rating would be about 245-285 HP.

Arlington School District? Washington, Virginia, Texas or other?

Could you post pics that show the engine?

Thanks.

Definitely need more pictures and information. Can you post VIN plate picture?

What options, or even better, have you got build number?

(This looks to be a Washington Crown considering lights and side rub rails.)
