2003 Freightliner FS65

I have a 2003 Freightliner FS65. Good runner with Cat 3126 7.2L engine and has an Allison 2500 PTS 5 speed automatic w/ overdrive. Recently had new alternator and belt installed when I picked the bus up. I will post ,more pictures next weekend when I get a chance to get out there where I have it parked.

Due to some changes in life situation, might need to sell bus, just looking see what interest there is. I'm contemplating enlisting to Air Force Officer Candidacy program, so I can go to Pilot School as I already have a bachelors degree, so that would mean i'd be in the Active Military and not Reserves or guard, so no time to do anything. and needing to move anyways at some point...

All i've done is replace the AM/FM radio. thats about it. I also have a part I bought from Allison to replace the Transmission speed sensor (the part that communicates between the transmission and the speedometer. its an easy fix.. part was only 18 bucks.

Looking for $2200 obo.... Its located in the vicinity of Marshfield, Wisconsin.

I just bought it back in September. Have unsigned title, so all you have to do is sign on the part that is the buyer part as the previous owner (bus company ) signed their part. I havent signed it yet, so easily transferrable. I also have a bill of sale showing I purchased the bus from them.

Thanks

I will take more pics this weekend, if the weather permits travel to storage location. Past few days weather has been not good for traveling out and about.

Exclamation photos

here are photos... sorry for the delay.. crappy weather we've been having and then the trifecta of having some car troubles precluded me from visiting where I have it parked until now.

It started right up on the first try after sitting through a couple weeks of the past really cold weather we've had in Wisconsin from when I last started it up for a while to run it and check the batteries.

willing to discuss price.. located in Central Wisconsin, willing to deliver it.
