Nearly Completed Skoolie 1980 Bluebird For Sale in Oregon

We are selling our nearly finished skoolie conversion. Our life plans shifted away from living in this 1980 Bluebird conversion full time but not before we invested much time, energy and
Money designing and working on this ambitious build. In fact it is mostly complete inside.
A Detailed list of pros and cons below. Let our loss be your gain! Be the first to live in this gem!!

Located in Eugene, Oregon.

We are honest people, happy to answer any questions.

Feel free to reach out via email to: thisrips@gmail.com


Pros.
Motor and transmission has only 1500 miles on it and runs strong.
Electrical inside is 110 and 95% complete. Plumbing is 95% complete.
Has Working vintage refrigerator,
all in one washer/dryer unit and
nice brand new still in packaging rv toilet.
Kitchen has a extra large sink,
custom cabinets and countertop
four burner propane stove/oven.

Bathroom has sink, shower, washer/dryer and toilet.

Bedroom has Platform for bed and built-in four large drawers.

Living room has some cabinetry and space for a wood stove.

Cons
There are some mechanical issues with the brakes. They seem to be partly stuck?
The bus will move but not very well with this brakes issue so it will likely need to be towed out.

This awesome skoolie conversion would be ideal for somebody wanting a project that is already off the ground. As it is past that tough initial starting point and just needs to be finished to your own tastes and specifications.

We have about $14,000 wrapped up in this bus and countless hours of work. Our loss your gain!

Asking $8,000 obo

Looks like a BlueBird flatnose, but would be helpful to know some more specifics:

Chassis manufacturer / series
(ex. Chevy C60, Ford B700, International S1800)

Which diesel engine
(ex. Detroit 8.2, Navistar 6.9, etc.)

Which automatic trans
(ex. Allison AT545, Allison MT643)

Coachwork manufacturer
(ex. Blue Bird, Thomas, Carpenter, Ward)

Length, or alternately, window count per side or passenger capacity

(ex. 28 ft / 30 ft / 35 ft / 48 passenger)
(ex. 6-window, 8-window)
(ex. 28 passenger, 48 passenger, 64 passenger)

The coachwork manufacturer's body tag can help with some of this. Thomas should be a red tag on the ceiling over the driver's window, Blue Bird is usually located on the inside above the right windshield. Perhaps Carpenter / Ward owners can chime in as to where theirs are in the absence of the aforementioned.

Sorry if I sound like a jerk, not trying to be a pain, really. But things get pretty specific here, and not all buses are created equal. Helps to know what you're dealing with... BTW, pics indicate some nice work on the inside, but it's hard to tell with them sideways.
