Anybody want to buy a bus

Anyone want to buy a bus? I was dealing with a local school trying to purchase a bus for use by me and my family and Well I ended up buying 2. The one I am looking to sell is a 1999 GMC Bluebird. This bus does have a gas engine and I was told it needs lifters. If memory serves me correctly it is a 71 passenger. Bus is located in Illinois about an hour outside of St Louis.

If you are interested please comment and we will chat. If no one is imterested I'm going to remove 10 seats from it and drive it over to the scrap yard.

Hard to show interest with no details , like how much you want to pay to haul it off

I'll shoot you straight. I dont need it and just need it gone so I can put the money back into my bus. Basically I'm looking at about $1200 in scrap and I really hate to scrap it so someone wants it for that I'll let them have it.

today is a low energy day for me, not feeling all that great, so it would have to be close - tomorrow not so much - lol - let me look at your specs again

that's over 7000 km from me - time l fix the lifters and pay for fuel, the bus would be too expensive

interesting that it needs lifters.. one or two I understand.. but if all the lifters are rattling thats a sign of poor oil circulation through the engine.. the top end on a chevy is the first to lose oil pressure when things wear badly or the oil screen gets clogged up... its unusual to see all the lifters go at once..
