I would offer the guy with the mci 5k it is a standard transmission and a mediocre conversion, but depending on the engine (mileage on rebuild...) 5-6K is reasonable. Also it has 10 tires so tire quality is very important. Also check for rust and all the normal stuff but the mci is twice the bus of the skoolie.

The mci is very well priced as is! To each their own though...

I'd rather go for one like this-
1988 MCI passenger coach.* FOR SALE



Or this one-

But everyone has different tastes, wants, and needs for sure! To me a bus is worth MORE unconverted.

Nice looking GMC in AL, Bear. But you shouldn't have posted it... He is very clear he doesn't need any help selling it! lol
The scenicruiser looks like a major project but man those are totally worth it. That school bus looks like a cheap, hasty conversion though. I'd rather buy the bus myself and do it my own way. But I guess if one finds a conversion they'd be happy with its an option.
I haven't seen that 77' for sale. I like those.

I'm looking for a relatively rust free bus with a dt466 or Cummins and Allison 643 or standard tranny. Those are my only requirements. Rust free is probably worth traveling for as I will be leaving Michigan this fall and living out of the bus for at least a few years. Been looking around but I figure I'd throw this on here as I am willing to pay a little extra toinsire my new home is nice

Those were more or less my requirements. I went 800 miles north to beautiful Kentucky and score a beauty. A good bus is SOOOO worth the drive.

Just got notice from publicsurplus.com that Washington has an auction with
6 1997 Bluebird All American buses. They all have the 8.3 Cummins engines
and the MD3060 Allison transmission. They also have basement storage and
appear to be rust free. To bad they don't show the tach up close so you can
read the hour meter. Look like very desirable units with the perfect drivetrain.
