ISO: Conversion-Ready Bus

Looking for a Bus that is ready to be converted. Must be running. Size doesnt matter and neither does the make/model/year. Looking for an automatic and runs on gas.

I would not buy a full size gas powered bus, if I intended to do much driving in it. It will use much more fuel than a diesel powered counterpart, not to mention the longevity and better hill climbing ability of the diesels.

Of course if this is a one-time drive and it will remain parked for long periods after that, then it makes little difference.

Gas powered "cutaway" style buses should be fine.

This would be for parking it. Minimal travel!

It's always a personal choice, but if the cost of this gasser is similar to a diesel bus you'd likely have less trouble with the diesel. You already know how hard it is to start a gasser after it's been sitting for an extended period of time.

If you intend to park-it-and-forget-it, you might do just as well finding an El Cheapo with a blown engine or failed transmission and have it towed to its final parking spot.

Of course there's always the possibility of needing to move it at some future date ...

If you're open minded about the diesel, I'm selling my 1990 Chevy Blue Bird Mini Bird P30 Step Van. It's been partially converted already, but it wouldn't be hard to either scrap the wood we built with or anything.

Shoot me a message if you're interested.
