I'm going to pass this one along.....

I just don't want to be in it for $9000.00 starting out

someone else might.
seller won't budge off of 9k, and he doesn't know anything about it, except he and his brother brought it to Arkansas from California several years ago.
double rear barn doors
original tires and 7288 miles, military spec generator and 2 a/c's

1988 Navistar International American Transportation Cor

it's stored in a warehouse 30 miles from me, but the owner lives in Tulsa.
It's legit, and sitting in his company's warehouse.

good luck

Nice but as you noted...$9K is WAY out of line for any '88.

I checked the VIN to try to find out what engine was in it. No luck on that, but found that govliquidation.com sold it as an "ambulance conversion" for the Navy out of Portsmouth (Chesapeake) VA four years ago for $4342.42. The mileage is the same, so it was trucked to Arkansas. Either that, or the odometer is broken. They listed it (in inches) as a 35-footer.

If it did visit California, maybe the firm price is an attempt ro recover the cumulative costs of dragging it back and forth across the country.

It does look nice.

interesting..... the guy's wanting to double his money

is it possible that it was registered in Virginia, but lived it's life in California?
like Uhaul has a central operations, but units all over

m1031 thought it was an ICU bus, as he's seen one in military museum

I don't know why but it seems like the military medical transports like this one with the special rear barn doors and stretcher racks are going for insane prices regardless of age or condition....wonder why.

This is a medical ambulance bus. Probably Air Force.

GSA/USAF buses go for insane prices. Because they're low mileage, in pristine condition, zero rust, and not beat up. A couple I saw on Fleabay while looking for mine were going for 12k+

A buddy of mine owns a 64 GMC military funeral coach.

He only paid 2500 for it. Insanely low miles, pristine condition...
Still needs a lot of work but its a sweet bus.
