I want the colorado bus with 250 hp and low miles!
I've talked to the school, it sounds n looks pretty solid.
I'm willing to bet its SOLID. Of course if something goes awry I'd cough up whatever it took...
THat bus in CO is too good to pass up, I WANT it. How much you want to drive it back for me?

Agreed. My plan would be to fly out and drive it back, credit card in hand. A 2500 mile road trip should wring out any issues the bus may have. I'm not sure if I'd survive the trip this time of year, with no A/C.

As busy as I've been lately and as hot as it is, bus delivery is something I'd consider.
Doesn't matter now. Someone in a better financial state than myself bought both of them.

I haven't seen this auction sight listed here before. Is there a reason why? Having "lemon" in your name isn't super smart, but the listing's look nice.

Do not know, looks to be an auction house that travels to where the items are and auctions them off, I guarantee they know nothing about individual lots

You will have to check the stuff out quickly and personally

good luck

Question

Sightseer Bus (Siloam Springs Ar.
1963 GM

condition: good
cylinders: 6 cylinders
fuel: diesel
title status: clean
transmission: automatic

Extremely rare GMC "fish bowl" bus with the full "sightseer package" - standee windows AND roof windows. Spent most of it's life as an Alaskan Tour Bus (garaged in winter). Strong 6V71 Detroit diesel, automatic transmission, good tires ... drove it home from Colorado last fall without any problem. I have the hard-to-find service manuals, and even a GrayLines promotional brochure with pics. Includes 6 original seats, and a pile of stuff for the conversion. Already licensed in Arkansas as a motorhome, so the paperwork is done. Interior carefully stripped (everything labeled) so you have a blank canvas for your motorhome conversion ... or it would make AMAZING tiny house! Only selling because new job leaves no time to complete. $8,500 o.b.o. [ For inspiration, google "Magpul Bus" or "Skyview Bus". ] More pics can be found on the Fayetteville, AR (fayar) Craigslist.

Interesting bus for sale in Tampa

1993 FORD B600 BUS CUMMINS ENGINE

My thoughts:

This was a fire department vehicle, and the fire guys I know obsess about taking care of their vehicles.

It is not painted 'school bus yellow', so, if you can live with the color, you can avoid a re-paint altogether, or at least delay it. (Florida does not require that the yellow be painted over, but still, I think most people prefer not to keep the yellow for various reasons.)

I've got my conversion underway (finally), but I might go for this otherwise.

This is a great running driving Thomas 30ft 1984 international Bus it has the 466 turbo Turbo Diesel with the inline injector pump and this bus also has a electro magnetic drive line retarder for going down steep grades.this bus was in service up till about two years ago. It has good tires and is ready to go..I'm looking to trade for a Diesel 4x4 or?

I was going to purchase this bus but due to immediate health concerns in the family and the flooding in La. have suddenly put plans on hold.

Let me know if you get it. i don't know the guy.
