In case anyone was taking this post seriously, that thing would be an awful starting point for a build.

I love my ragged old buses. No emissions equipment to kill the engine or my bank account. No multiplexed electrical systems.
And plenty of folks here finish their ragged old buses. I'm just not one of them.

Low-profile tires, fiberglass glass body (it appears), many interior curves.. Not my cup o' tea.

The cockpit is nice, though. Can't complain about that!

First generation emissions engine, plastic body, slanted and curved surfaces all the way around, little wheels, and likely spent 20 minutes running for every mile on the odometer. Plenty of things to not like.
