For Sale 2000 international amtran rear engine 3000 series, demolition completed.

https://winchester.craigslist.org/ct...517451757.html The bus is just off exit 315 on I81 in Virginia. It's near the VA/WV/MD state line.

Hey everyone! I'm planning on selling my bus, and buying a short bus. Probably an e350 or 3450. We're moving 300 miles away, and I can't keep a 40 foot bus in Akron, OH. My wife and I decided to convert a short bus that will fit in our driveway.

I've done ~90% of the demolition. It just needs the floor cleaned(Some rust from the seat bolts over the galvanized metal), and the wall panels removed. I've removed about 75% of the screws for the wall panels. I'll finish removing the rubber floor and wall panels if you'd like.

The front roof hatch leaks about 1 drop every minute in heavy rain, the sealant looks old and dried up. Other than that, I couldn't find any leaks. I parked it over a clean spot in the parkinglot, and there were no drips from underneath for a week. It does have an engine and transmission with about 10k on them. There are stickers above the driver seat that indicate both are from Jasper. ~190k on the body, minor rust on the rear bumper, . Starts right up even at 10F, and drives very smoothly. It has an air ride seat with a newer gray cover.

The outside has 2 issues. Passenger side overhang mirror was missing when I bought it. When I checked online, they are about 300$ on ebay. It's a roscoe heated mirror. I called some junkyards, and was quoted 100$. The passenger side also has a bend in the metal just in front of the rear axle. I hit a light pole in downtown D.C. while driving it home. My plan was to cut the small storage boxes off, and make a large basement. It could be bent back into shape according to a local shop, but would cost almost as much as building a larger storage bay.

It's listed at 3750 or best offer. I'd also take an even trade for another bus with a van front end. I'm flexible, feel free to ask questions too. I've had the bus since August, and have a clean title.

Absolutely!

It's got the t44e, at545, and 190k miles on the body. The motor and transmission were replaced by the county about 2 years ago. They used replacement ones from Jasper.

Edit

Ceiling is 6'2"

T444E was standard on them from 94-04 with either a 545 or a 643.

I've had a few people ask about rust. Here are some shots from the under carriage. It's minimal, and only on the surface. I've also included one of the back, as I didn't post that yet.

I don't think the frame and chassis are where you should be concerned about rust, it's the condensation build up on the floor that rusts out the floor. Of course if you see major rust on the chassis, there really is no need to look under the subfloor.

The bus has a galvanized floor, and then a rubber coating. I've removed half of the rubber. I did have people asking about the under side, and I know I'd hate to get to a vehicle and find bad frame rust. Virginia is known for using too much salt in the winter, so I'm surprised at how clean it is underneath.
