FOR SALE Beautiful 1996 Thomas Vista T444E 7.3 Navistar Diesel

Hello friends!

We have a beautiful school bus in perfect driving conditions partially converted, and she is gorgeous, our family calls her Lolita.

She is a 1996 Thomas Vista T444E 7.3 Navistar Diesel school bus with an automatic Allison transmission and air brakes with clean Florida Title in hand.

We still need to add electricity and plumbing, but the hard work has been completed (Removing Seats, Removing Old Floor, Brushing, Rust Treatment, New Flooring and Painting)

This is her current condition:

- 6 Brand New tires.

- All seats removed.

- Cleaned and treated floor with rust inhibitor.

- New plywood sub-floor finished with wood look vinyl flooring.

-New Beige Leather Class A Drivers seat.

- Freshly painted inside with primer and top coat.

- Exterior is painted Country Beige with stock white roof.

- Full bed (with mattress) and two bunk beds (no mattresses)

- Small island with new never used microwave.


There is a lot work already done in Lolita, and only the right buyer will appreciate that is in the market for a Skoolie or tiny home conversion will really appreciate.

This conversion was for the family to take road trips and camping trips. The only things that we haven't installed is power (solar or generator) and plumbing.

We would love to keep her especially because the amount of money and labor that I has on it (the tires + installation alone cost $3000.00) but we need to let her go at the moment.

The Bus was a MiamiDade Public School bus from 1997-2010, the bus was well maintained and was still under current inspection in Miami Dade County to be utilized as a bus when it was previously purchased.

Her overall condition is great and we love her greatly but we move it to a new building and we can not keep it at the moment.

We are asking $7000 as is right now, I'm adding pictures so you can appreciate the overall condition.

We can also take more pictures and videos if desired or do a video call. Contact info included.

You'll have to contact them to find out. Many private bus seller don't continue to check their update this site after a sale.

Hello ! I'm just reading the messages right now. I received the forum notifications but never the emails.

We sold Lolita, but we still have in the family Maggie, her sister bus, it's the same model but a 1997, partially converted. Perfect structural and mechanical conditions. She is a jewel.

We haven't decide if we will sell her, but we need the money and we need to take a decision begore May 5th. Please send me an email so I can stay in touch if we decide to let her go.
