Re: 1994 RUST FREE blue bird All American RE

Looking back over this original thread, that was not a bad price he was asking for that bus. 10k hours is a lot of hours but do-able. There was a recon engine in it, so that nullified the engine hours.
I saw a few comparisons....stop, you cant compare any FE bus with a bus like this. Nor can you compare a 5.9, DT or 8.2 to this, apples and oranges. These things are the pinnacle when it comes to a well configured school bus.

Crazycal, you said your bus was an 8.3 but your thingy over ------------> says its a DT?

This is the bus with the DT466.



This is the 8.3.






And I found a picture of the dash from the trip back home. I was off.

Yup the bus was such a terrible price for those components that I only went as far as Oregon to pick it up. On a side note as I tear into things I am finding that yes the bus is also actually rust free, great climate for buying vehicles out of.

The lowered asking price was a fair price. If you got it for less, even better.
