1998 6 Window Shorty For Sale (FL)



VERY well maintained, RUNS STRONG. This bus has a 444E with at545 and 4.10 rear gears. It will do 75 on a long straight road.
The tires are nearly new and have virtually full tread. They were recently balanced, as well. This bus rides and drives EXTREMELY well. It came to FL from CO with no problems at all. Its a dream to drive.
This is a HIGH headroom model.
The bus is clean, barely any rust other than one spot that's been treated already. Seats can be removed at no charge after sale is complete.
The bus has been sanded and had all the decals etc removed. Its pretty much ready to paint whatever color you desire.
It has air ride, and an air driver seat. New wiper switch and wiper blades. Clean inside and out. Roof hatches properly paneled and sealed over so no possibility of leaks.
Fresh fluids all around. Chassis recently fully lubed. Oil, filter, and fuel filter are brand new. Starts right up and runs as good as new.
A large portion of the proceeds from this sale will be going to help pay for my good friend Ed's expenses as he battles cancer. He needs all the help he can get.
Asking $6,000.
Feel free to PM me. Thanks.

I also have a new in box Fantastic vent I'll throw in with the deal. I'll even install it if you like.
Any reasonable offers considered, I'd love to find a good home for this bus.
I wouldn't hesitate to drive this bus across the country.

I'd buy that fan off you. Wish i could snatch this bus up it is a very desirable size. Easy maneuvering, can go places full size buses can't. Not to mention clean as all get out.

I'd buy it too, if we were in a position to buy now.

I think the price is more than reasonable considering that you have done much of the hard work and, unusually, appear to have done it right

We likely won't be ready to commit to a purchase until early summer ... I am enjoying the research though.

Edit ... I'd buy the big one, not this shorty!

My van has filled the spot this shorty occupied, and I'd rather it go to good use than let it sit. Its nicely equipped and would make a hell of a smaller conversion. Or enjoy it as is, as we've been doing.
