2000 International/Thomas with the DT466 and a 7 spd manual transmission. Looks like it has an air ride seat as well. Hopefully it isn't too rusty underneath.

Over 310,000 miles!!

super cool bus there!
That's what I'd like to have for using as a daily driver.

that bus would be super sweet to have. but looks far too rusty to deal with. if you take a closer look at the back a lot of the black trim stuff that goes all the way around is rust through at spots, and still more around, and front bumper, etc... mine is a 92 and still from Minnesota and wasn't nearly half that bad as that looks.

This generation of IC buses is just starting to get into skoolie territory so it'll be interesting - I have yet to see one of them converted.

But again, these buses could attract interest from smaller companies if there's any life left in them, which means the bidding will go up by a lot

I almost bought one like these.. there are advantages to newer busses.. however if you think your car is expensive for a major repair one of these busses is far more... that in my opinion would be the main reason someone here may not like them.. however for a tiny home where the bus is rarely driven mechanical repairs arent as much concern...

these newer busses are definitely better insulated and often have tinted windows, etc.. and for those driving alot.. the overdrive transmissions and more powerful engines make for a nice hghway ride...

but when I priced a transmisson overhaul on a allison 2500 (as an exercise ..) at 5k+ and a full fuel injector repair / replacement job for a VT365 at 3-4k (assuming the cylinders werent washed out, or bearings ruined)..

1964 GMC Superior, not many details but for 3 grand it's not a bad deal. Don't see many of these buses around anymore

Cool!
Price seems reasonable considering it ACTUALLY has 23k on it!
