1988 Mini Bird 4x4 For Sale

Anyone out there with an interest in a rare 1988 Bluebird P30 "Mini Bird" 4x4? GM 6.2 liter "Detroit Diesel", normally aspirated. Three-speed manual transmission with factory 4x4 option with hi-lo 4 wheel range. Creeper gear is fantastic! Approximately 105,000 miles. Tires OK, but 4 of the 6 are pretty old. Battery 3 years old. Was used by rural school district for 10 years and tour company for 10 years, so it always received regular fleet maintenance. Currently in Arizona. Minimal surface rust, no body "cancer" and little "road rash". Seats out but has not been converted yet. Rear heater, no a/c. Decent two-tone paint (green / tan). I used it to haul my stuff cross-country and now it is mostly used for storage. Starts easily and drives well. Was planning to convert but my priorities have changed and I hate to see it sit. Gets about 13 mpg @55 mph in 2wd mode. Add a Banks turbo and you might see as much as 18mpg if you don't build it too heavy. Has 16 feet of space from back of drivers seat to back door and 6'7" ceiling, so plenty of room for frugal living space. Will make a great back-country RV for somebody. $5,500 firm. email booksandparts@yahoo.com

p.s. Sorry, no pics to upload from this computer. I'll add some when I can. This is the basic style: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:2008- ... _Bus_1.jpg Yes, it's homely looking.

The P30 is a Chevrolet chassis, with dual rear wheels. We have two such Minibirds where I work, albeit without 4WD - pretty they ain't, but they're solid reliable workhorses that will probably outlive me! (And no, I'm not that old!)

John

lol figured that but wasnt sure it was dually and 4x4. in 88 that was indeed rare (at least around here)
