Wow, those went CHEAP. I wonder what it took to get them safely mobile.

Re: Crown buses for sale nearly free

From the looks of that one, I'd have to say probably a lot more than it would cost to buy one that was already mobile

a pair of junk buses for under $1K. You could sell them each for scrap for double that price!

Re: Crown buses for sale nearly free

The original Ebay buyer did not pay and get buses. Another guy waited till after auction and paid about $500 for both buses. After a short time fixing the fuel and air lines, changing wheels, the bus was driven away about 50 miles. No words about the second bus. The really good news is the first engine was a 1986 BC Cummins with very low time. There are some terrific bus deals some where. I'm soon installing a used BC4 Cummins engine that cost $4K. One man's trash is another man's treasure. Frank
