interesting - it doesn't really pin down exactly what motor it has in it, only the choices available

Am I wrong that the 366 was a big block? The engine I have is definitely a small block.

Odd. I thought that a blue Blue Bird emblem denotes a gasser, a green one signifies propane/CNG. Just sayin'...

Sorry you have to give it up. Looks to have some real potential.

Checked fluids all good. Wintered over well. Started her up, quick and easy. Turn on propane, turn the key zoom, zoom. Not sold yet. Clean title.

Pulling my bus off the market. It's worth more at the scrap yard than anything anyone is willing to pay.

You won't get $1K out of it as scrap.

Unfortunately I know, and the wheels and tires are worth more than that.

I suspect that you'll have better luck finding a buyer on EBay, Craig's List, et al.

You're playing a pretty tough room, here!

Trouble is trying to sell a propane powered bus in Canada. There are just not that many into the hobby up there, evidently.

There are many good used busses here in the US to choose from, and not have the headaches and added cost of trying to "import" a bus into the US.
Good luck, and as mentioned, ebay, there is a Canadian craigslist, as well as another that escapes memory. Something like kijii or ?

Parting it out might get you a better bang for your buck.
The engine has to be $500. (US), wheels & tires, $1,000., etc., etc. ...
