That don't look so bad for $2k. The "it cranks" isn't exactly reassuring, but....

A little more reassuring that it "cranks and run". I've messaged for more info. That fact that it's at a metal recycler isn't exactly reassuring also. If it's a front engine TC2000, I'm interested.

Nope, 98 was the last year of rear engine, back to the search.

I say if the windshield wipers and headlights work, it's good to go. Besides, it's got that groovy paintjob.

From the looks of the hubcaps (which I wish I had) it's got Wagner spoke hubs like mine.
It also has factory air (which I wish I had).
If it runs and drives it would be a heck of a deal. I'm thinking it was a Boeing plant (here in Charleston) bus from the paint job.

I would think looking at the pictures that this IS a front engine, may be you want to give it a second thought.
Companys that spend that much money on a paint job will do pretty good maintenance. Probably in a perfect shape, just got written of the books and the house scrapper bought it for $ 500.

I agree. It looks like a FE. I agree on the other points as well. If I didn't already have a bus and didn't want a 14 window (40ft.) bus, I'd probably be all over this one. At least look into it pretty close.

Now that you mention it, it does have a back door, which isn't on any of the rear engine buses. I di a search for specs on the TC2000 and found:

1998: Carryover from 1997, last year for TC/2000 Rear Engine
1999: TC/2000 Rear Engine discontinued, replaced by All American A3RE. Front-engine models receive a new electronically controlled instrument cluster with digital odometer and supplementary gauges. Outside, the headlight bar becomes all-yellow.


If it's a standard TC200 and not an RE, then it has the dreaded Cummins 5.9 and 545 tranny. The RE had the 8.3 which I would rather have. Since I plan on selling my first build I should stop worrying about the "what ifs" of the 5.9.

Are you in the area that you could go look at it for me? Before you posted I didn't want to ask you to do that for fear you would get back to me and tell me it was great deal and you bought it for yourself.

If you like planes , like me, then the price of that paint job will be the same as a new motor / tranny..
