Looking for converted school bus in any condition

Im looking to buy a school bus conversion in any condition.
Bus should be at least 35 foot, diesel powered and no major mechanical issues or problems.
Interior does not have to be completed, in good condition or even exist as I plan to have most of it redone, need holding tanks and pumps in working condition though.
It can be located almost anywhere in the country
Priced below $3000
Please feel free to contact me with further questions

Re: Looking for converted school bus

Not trying to be rude but I think finding one that is in your criteria is going to be VERY hard to do. Ive seen a lot of diesels that are being sold which are just coming out of service starting at 5k. So you would have to do the cost of converting. Not saying it cant happen but your going to be looking for a while.

Re: Looking for converted school bus

I have seen diesel pushers coming out of service that went for less than $900 in eastern washington state sales. Frequently the $5K ones are sold second hand from the dealers who bought them from the state sales, which everyone can bid on.

Busses are cheap when there are 40 of them at auction...
Lots of converted ones on CL for 5K or so, if you spend hours looking. BTW, there is something like a short 58 Ford bus on CL in Nebraska or Minnesota right now..
Pretty cheap...

Re: Looking for converted school bus

Can't hurt to ask! I've known lots of folks (one in particular) who get great deals on stuff at really low prices. Guy once got a Caddy that was only 3 or 4 years old, garage kept, low mileage for $5K. It needed a new battery because it hadn't been driven while the owner was in the hospital. Owner's kids flew in to settle his estate and sold everything for next to nothing to just get rid of it. They had X amount of time to do it in so they could all go back home to jobs & family. Even the house sold super cheap within a week. Happens every day somewhere. You just have to be in the right place, at the right time, with cash in hand.

Re: Looking for converted school bus

I see stuff all the time. It will need some work when in the 4K range but they are out there.
Here is one example I found recently. http://denver.craigslist.org/rvs/3218283782.html

Band under $3k. The parts are worth more than that.
