Gnome found this bus: any thoughts?

https://abilene.craigslist.org/cto/5948308276.html

Hey would anyone offer an opinion on this bus? I will call tomorrow to find out more info about engine and transmission. Would anyone have any thoughts? Price wise as well what is this worth?

Thank you!!

Looks like a DT466 in it. If it has an Allison MT647 or MD3060 and is in reasonable condition I would not hesitate to spend $3500 on it IF it is what you are looking for.

I think the 30' long (+/-) FE buses are one of the best compromises between ease of driving/maneuvering versus interior space.

I have to laugh at myself. That is exactly the bus I was looking for when I bought my 40' RE.

Looks like they took the 5' out from between the wheels
