2 - 1976 Crown School Buses for sale

Starting 11/6 there will be 2 - 1976 Crown's for sale on eBay. 671 Detroit diesel, 5 sp man transmission. Stored inside a bus garage, have not been started for two year due to dead batteries. Client doesn't want to spend $ to replace batteries so you will need to bring/provide your own. Cosmetic condition is good, seats and tires in good condition. Should start up according to mechanics. One bus has 445K mi , the other has 549K mi. Main reason for selling is not California emissions compliant. Low starting prices as well.

Located in Costa Mesa, CA .

Me: formerly worked for Interschola, California's largest school district surplus vendor until it belly up last year. I have retained several OC clients and occasionally have school buses for sale....better to repurpose than to send to scrap yard or trade in for NG buses.

Ask questions here or join us for an inspection on 11/12....address and directions will be provided if you send me a request. Ed Code requires us to auction the vehicle so we cannot accept private offers.

We also will have two Thomas Transit (Charter) buses for sale at the same location, one of which has very expensive CARB particulate filters installed.

Can you post pics of the buses you are listing so I can ogle them before the auction?

Posting to photobucket is best, the picture hosting on the forum is hit or miss.

I'd take one at the current price. But getting it to FL would be pricey and/or a real ordeal.

I'd hurry if anyone wants these because I guarantee you the Crown nuts will scoop these buses and mark them up $10K

The non-turbo detroits have to be maybe the least desirable engines for these, but yeah.

It's more fun when you start the bidding low isn't it? Especially NO RESERVE auctions with no buyer's premiums. The way it should be!
