Ya...the Jimmy "Fish Bowls" are pretty cool old rigs. The 6-71 Detroit is old school but a pretty solid engine if properly maintained. Very likely supercharged. And heck...the two Kohler 5K gennies are worth more then the current bid.

Only 19K miles!! This thing is literally a time capusle

Too bad transit style buses aren't very suitable for skoolie conversions due to the low ride height and the gearing.

I'm also wondering what a fire department was doing with a transit bus like this.

Its got air ride. Just like my school bus, only this ones got it front and rear.
School bus gearing is sometimes the WORST, as in 45 mph down the highway.
looks like a mobile command center.

I see coaches used occasionally as mobile medical units too.. sometimes parked at events where they may see quite a few people.. almost like a first-aid tent but its got more equipment and is A/C and heated too... when it finally gets hot in ohio people dont have a cloue how to put on sunscreen and drink water so at big outdoor events the mobile med-centers are usually set up..

as for this bus im sure if the transitfans find out about it then it will sell quickly.. those guys have a lot of busses like these.. though they typically have all their seats and such in their busses

IDK, man but if I didn't already have a bus, I'd buy this one without the slightest hesitation... would even go up a couple thou.
I guess I don't see this as a "transit". More like a CLASSIC, with a bit of bookmobile thrown in.

That would make a cool rv! And with TWO low hour generators and the low mileage on the bus itself, this is a deal! Confirmed regular maintenance and just removed from service. I gotta sell a kidney to get some $$$$ and buy this

i'll bet this one gets bid up high at the end...

its the perfect bus for someone who wants a classic or a minimal conversion wherre you can keep the original bus look..

its probably a good thing i live in the city.. if I lived outside of town on lots of property I would probably end up with my own fleet of busses
