Looks like ours... same engine etc but we didn't have a wheelchair lift, it's 40 ft long and we only paid $1400.

And ours was near Franklin.. NC that is! I think the asking price is a little high.

Re: 1989 Bluebird Flatnose 5.9 Cummins Allison 545 2500.00

Greetings all ,...newby here looking to buy a bus.

Is this one still available? I like it.

I have some questions about the flat nose in general, and from viewing your You Tubes post, it would seem you are knowalgable if not enthousiastic therefore someone I would like to talk about busses with.

Please email me a number and good time to call or you can call me.

My email is truth4wtc7@aim.com

thank you

Looks like a nice bus and well priced. I just sold a similar Thomas for over twice your asking price. The driveline retarder is approx. a $10K option, and well worth every penny if you travel in the mountains and in reduced brake maintenance costs. Best of luck with your sale. Doug@8000'

I would think the "seller" from the LV add pirated this photo.


just thought it was funny that Ive been lurking on this site awhile....and looking around vegas on CL. and when I saw the add I thought...Hey I've seen that pic somwhere before ;)

and came back here and found it..
