1993 Ward 72 passenger

Well unfortunately our project is just not moving forward and we don't have the time so we have decided to get out. Maybe someday we'll try again.

1993 Ward/International 72 passenger
DT360 engine, auto trans.
Air ride suspension
Body and floor are very solid, originally a southern bus.
All seats have been removed (we all know how much that sucks). Also included are 3 bench seats from a Ford E350, all the seat belts, and about 35 sheets of OSB subfloor and sheeting. Runs good, tires fair, drives good.


Follow the link below for more pics, including some of the underside.

How many miles? Air brakes or hydraulic? Any known issues? Very interested.

Air brakes, somewhere around 150,000 miles I can't remember exactly. No known issues.

How does it drive and handle on the road/highway? Do you have the records for the engine/tranny maintenance? Have you have the engine/tranny/drivetrain inspected or had any work done on them? Thanks.

Drives fine on the highway, drove it home from n.w. Of Detroit 4 hours to home east of Cleveland. Previous owner did not provide any records, and we haven't done anything to it. We intended to do an oil change after we got it home but we have so little spare time to work on it we never even did that. Since we brought it home late last fall we have only driven it a few times to move it from one place it was being stored to another.

Re: 1993 Ward 72 passenger

How about rust? What condition are the body panels, floor, frame, etc in? Being from the north I assume it's seen lots of salt in the winter. This is exactly the type I'm looking for, it's just hard to inspect it from 1000 miles away. Can you post more pics of the engine, interior, underside, etc? Thanks.

Exactly what he said. How was the rust on the body and undercarriage and how was the sub floor when you took the seats out? And do you still have the seats?

Re: 1993 Ward 72 passenger

This bus originally came from down south, Alabama I think, and did not see a lot of salt. We were actually quite shocked how solid the body is. No major rot anywhere, and the floor is in great shape.

However yesterday I met a guy to look at it and it wouldn't crank. Not even a click from the starter. Never had a starting problem before, even after sitting for a couple of months. Gotta be something simple so I am starting to check it out today.

Yup, it was simple. Had to wiggle the shifter, it wasn't catching the neutral safety switch.
