going to look at this weekend

Old gov. FEMA bus from Oregon. Going to look at it this weekend two hours from home. I tried to attach a pic. It couldn't on this tablet.
1988 w/63000 miles on It total. Old gov. FEMA bus for emergency mobile. Cummins 5.9.
Couple hours from home.
Maybe a pic tomorrow. My tablet won't do it.

Re: going to look at this weekend

here is another that has some new tires on it and the guy has paperwork for a rebuilt Detroit not long ago.
1988 Chevy.
I'll look at this one on my way back to work from home on Sunday. $1700.00 Seems cheap.

Re: going to look at this weekend

I know this might sound crazy. If you all introduce yourselves and tell us what you are looking for and where you are at, there is a good chance someone on here would be helpful. I know of a few buses around Texas at various prices and also I have gathered info on the Auction houses that tend to handle ISD needs here as well. I would love to offer these to someone who is looking in this area. Just an idea, trying to help you guys out.

Re: going to look at this weekend

I'm looking in the South Dakota, North Dakota & Minnesota area.
I would prefer a Diesel with a standard trans. if possible but won't,
at all, rule out an auto. I just prefer to have a standard.
Not fussy about the make of bus but may become so as I learn
more about them. A high top would be nice; I need to insulate
the floor well because I'll be staying in the bus over the winter in
North Dakota.

Thanks,
Gus

Gus, my bus was an emergency management vehicle. As you know, it is blue and white. The bus in the ad looks way longer than mine. My bus is 33 feet long. Cummins diesel motors are good.

Re: going to look at this weekend

Awesome Accordion,
I looked at your build thread; very well done, IMHO.
Ad says this one is a 40 footer. I talked to the guy and he says the Cummins is unteathered and runs like a banshee down the hiway.
What kind of mileage do you get with yours @, say, 65 mph?

Thanks,
Gus
