1997 Thomas 38ft diesel bus for sale in KY

I have a thomas school bus with seats already pulled. Was an 84 passenger. It is a model with a good amount of headroom. I am 6'2" an can stand up in the middle without bumping my head. 150,000+ miles on a 5.9 cummins with the MT643 allison transmission auto 4 speed. front engine model. Tires aren't great but are holding up. Got a used battery in it that I got 3 months or so ago and is on a trickle charger. Starts every time. Previous owner replaced the smaller injection pump but does need two injectors replaced/rebuilt. A good bus project overall. I will also throw in 3 conversion books with the bus. Asking $3000 cash. You may text me before 9 pm at 270-438-9492. I am close to the Bowling Green area. Thank you in advance! Sorry couldn't figure out how to post a pic here.

Your welcome. Can post more pics later on Craigslist if I have any really interested prospects. Seems a school bus can be difficult to properly advertise to the right crowd.

The bus is rust free and has a straight body. It was originally a Sumner County TN bus that was going to be used for a shuttle business that didn't launch, then sold to me. I have lost interest to proceed further.

Any clue how much I would have to pay a mechanic to do the injectors?

Not sure. Was going to do it myself. Anyone that wants to hire someone for a pre-purchase inspection is encouraged to do so. Thanks again!
