Edit: This bus has been sold.
A couple years ago I started reading about school bus conversions, and especially a lot of stuff on skoolie.net. I like the idea of a bus conversion, and last year, I bought a bus to convert.
Unfortunately, circumstances changed, and I haven't had a lot of time to work on it. Now it is necessary to sell the bus that I had hoped to convert into a motorhome.
I have just enough work done on this bus to make it legal. Some lucky buyer will be saved much of the hard work, and can start quickly on the fun customization part. The vehicle has been titled as a motorhome instead of a bus, stop sign and flashing lights have been removed, seats have been removed, and it's painted white (with black trim) instead of yellow. Also included are many plumbing supplies (including stainless steel sink, water pump, pressure tank, PEX tubing and quick connect fittings), electrical (including 3 deep cycle batteries, 2000 watt inverter, and 00 gauge wire to hook them up), and a roof top air conditioner (not installed.)
The bus is a 1997 Carpenter Crown, approximately 36 feet long, flat nose front engine layout. It has a Cummins 5.9 engine and Allison MT643 transmission, and less than 100,000 miles on the odometer. Also, the fuel tank is 104 gallons: since many people report close to 10 MPG with this engine and transmission combination, it should have a range of almost 1000 miles!
I'm not certain what this vehicle is worth, considering that a partially converted bus is a bit of a specialty item. I've listed it for sale on eBay with a $3500 reserve (which is considerably less than what I've spent on it). The auction listing is here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...STRK:MESELX:IT
The auction contains more details than I've listed here.
I also have some pictures of the bus in a gallery here: http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/2944159/1/Bus?h=28c110
I'll be happy to answer any questions.
