If you can get 4500 for a reman with 90K you are better at sales then most.
that stated I am not sure what value you can expect for your bus.
I just did some looking muself- The cheapest used takeout +core that I could find was 3500+500 core- only 1 of those. Most take-outs were actually 4500+1500 core charge. some of them were even 6000.00- for a take-out
you may have found a chinese reman that could be bought for 4500. What was the core charge? my price is still ballpark.
Yes it is a cummins reman with 90 K on it- but it is an appropriately priced great running engine- that happens to be in a giant yellow crate.
I would dicker on the price- this bus has no rust- it would be a shame to take 3500 for the engine and scrap the bus.
is anyone interested enough to save me the time of scrapping it?
