2 Crowns still for sale - Long Beach,CA

Anyone in or around the Bus Business knows that Crown School Buses are one of the most durable and well made coaches ever built. They can be compared to a "Sherman Tank." They're powered by a GMC 671 Diesel engine, one of their most tangible assets. This simple 2 stroke engine goes the distance and then some. With an "in frame rebuild" it is like having a new engine installed. The Crowns that we own here at American Transportation Systems are in daily service and certified annually by the California Highway Patrol as Student Pupil Activity Buses, for ATS. But Crowns are still in use and Certified by the CHP as "School buses" for many School Districts across the State.

Problem is this, the brilliant legislators in the State of California have mandated that these incredible work horse buses must be destroyed in order for the "School Districts" to get Federal and State Funding for their replacements. Crushed into oblivion! We love our Crowns, they have made our business, but we can no longer operate them after December 31, 2014. So we are selling our fleet. Each bus is uniquely painted in different colors in order to catch potential customer's attention. They can be converted into motorhomes and/or toy haulers. Got any ideas? We are in fact in discussions with a man involved in "CAR-B-Q's" TO PRODUCE THE FIRST EVER-"BUS-B-Q!"

On our last search for Crown Buses for sale we found one tandem axle crown for sale at $15,900.00 Don't forget we are carrying passengers every single day in these buses. All units have automatic transmissions. Any questions call: Dennis Justice @ 562-531-8000

sorry to correct....a Bradley is not a tank....when the scouts thought they where they got shot at ; a Bradley is a Scout vehicle with little armor and a small 25mm chain gun and a couple tow's...they were supported(in the CAV) by TANKS our case we had M1A1's...so to say the Crown buses (drool) are compareable to a M60A3...then that would be correct

just giving you a hard time...thanks for posting these here

I am very seriously thinking about getting my first bus, and I'm salivating over these right now.

The prices have gone up some due to popular demand, but still a good deal.

Good luck with your sale. I'm sure us cheapass skoolies are lining up to buy your last 2 buses. You might need to raise prices again to curb demand.

You "cheapass skoolies" (your quote) have already bought 3 of our Crowns and are thrilled to get a California Crown with no rust or corrosion and have actually been maintained and CHP inspected. Supply and demand at work here. If you don't like the prices, make an offer.

I'm with CracyCal. I can get a bus with no rust or corrosion in Texas. Or Arizona. And the California highway patrol looking at the vehicle isn't worth the $10,000 extra on the price tag.

Good luck with that, though. If Americans are stupid enough to pay $100k for a swish new RV made from staples and styrofoam, I'm sure you can move a Crown for $16,000 (plus all appropriate taxes, fees, state bribes, etc etc).

$10,000 extra on the price tag ??? Ahhh, so how much are our Crowns worth? Maybe "cheapass skoolie" does fit.
