Looking for Bus

Hello all,

This is my first thread and am excited to become part of the community. My family and I are looking for a school bus located anywhere in the United States. We are located in Georgia, but don't mind flying out and driving home.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

What we are looking for:

Transit style
77+ passenger (the longer the better)
Taller inside (77-78")
Dt466e w/turbo or Cummins 8.3
mid or rear engine (preferably rear)
Allison Transmission larger than the 545 (ex: MT643 or MD3060)
Automatic
Air brakes
Highway gearing would be great, but I can do that later
Good tires
Service History

Let me know if anybody has any leads. I'm looking at several websites as well.

Thanks!

Try your state school surplus website. I was able to find my 40 ft. Thomas pusher there for $3000 and it was in great condition with all records intact.

You should be spoiled for choice at $5k.
