Dunno - maybe the back of the bus would get there before the front?

1983 Eagle motorcoach for $8500.

Eagle Limousine Bus

1981 Prevost that's been in someone's backyard for god knows how long. Could be a good project bus if the seller is willing to unload it for cheap and the buyer knows what he's getting into

The Le Mirage with the 8v92 and 6spd MT is epic! Both are beautiful coaches.

They appear to be mostly 2002s with the newer style front clip and the offset Freightliner gauge cluster.

This is in my backyard, so to speak. Esp. the Broadbirch and Randolph locations; not so much the Germantown yard but I betcha I'm still closer than you are!

PM me if you are serious about one of these and I'll see if I can get you some pics.

Seen on Facebook (someone else's bus - which looks impressive - not mine)
https://www.facebook.com/groups/skoo...0362500325144/

We're reluctantly selling our one of a kind bus. We've had the time of our lives converting it and taking small trips. But, life happens (specifically medical bills). We've poured hundreds if not thousands of hours into the bus.
We have a 1995 International D466 engine that is fully mechanical, which means easier and cheap repairs and pretty much any truck stop along your trip will have parts available. Million mile motor.
The bus has 64,000 original miles with about 3000 engine hours.
MT643 automatic trans, with air brakes, and air suspension. Electric, solar already done.
The air suspension compared to a hydraulic bus sells it alone.
The back of the bus's chassis has been lowered professionally ($5600 in 2006). It's designed to hold three 2,500 pound horses originally and is rated to hold multiple ATVS, motorcycles, kayaks, small car, golf carts, camping gear, etc. You wont find a bus with more possibilities! When parked the bus is walk in level, and when driving it rises to sit as a normal bus does via the air suspension. (See photos)
We used the back as a woodshop for our etsy shop.
The bus mechanically has been fully looked at by a professional International Mechanic, who services large trucks as well as the fire department in our area. And will answer all questions.
Tires good, low/,minimal rust, new fuel pump, new 160amp alternator, oil change/filters, air bags good, new 8d starting battery, and more. June 2016. Ready to travel anywhere across the country today. ($2000)
Upgrades:
-Custom walk in back storage area ($5600)
-Clean bill of health from mechanic ($2000)
- 300 watt renogy solar kit with 30amp charge controller ($700)
-2000 watt aims inverter with built in battery charger ($650)
- two 225 amp hour house batteries ($300)
- Highest rated Sound deadening board for all interior floor. ($1000)
-140 amp battery smart isolator from start to house batteries ($100)
- Titled, registered, insured as a RV in Florida ($1000+-)
-4.3 cf mini fridge ($120)
-two 30 amp RV extension cords ($80 each)
-120 amp circuit breaker box installed
-30 amp shore power hook up ($50)
- Rooftop AC ($300)
-generator hook up
-large Carefree Awning ($500)
-Custom Rv door with locks ($400)
- Custom build cabinetry ready for laminate or paint (cabinet maker as family profession)
-Atwood stove top ($100), 30 gallon fresh water tank($60), 115v water pump ($80)
- 3 separate side storage bays
-dark bamboo flooring available, stainless steel sink
-2" inch rubber mating for storage area
-lots to list, Not including all of the hours of work involved as well as help from master electrician
The bus has been completely gutted. Seats, Bus rubber, and old insulation have all been removed. Angle grinded the floor/seats, treated for rust, and painted with rustoleum rust preventer. Reinsulated entire bus. Vapor barrier, insulation, sound deadening board, and subfloor installed.
Ceiling has been reapplied and painted bright white. Electric has been run throughout with room for outlets wherever wanted. Bus has been sealed for any and all leaks on exterior. 1000's of rivets have been removed. Windows have been sealed with weatherstripping. Hundreds of hours have been put in!!
The bus isn't completely finished! But, all the hard has been done and just needs your finishing touches.
We're very confident that if you do your research, that our bus stacks up with the very best of them!
$16,500 obo
