Rough est. of an '85 or '86 Saf T Liner?

Can anyone give me a ballpark on an 85 or 86 Thomas built Saf T Liner? Ford chassis, Detroit motor. It runs and drives, and has been (roughly) converted; the "hard stuff" is basically done- seats removed, 3/4" plywood floor, has bathroom and kitchen, holding tanks...
What would a fair price be?

thats an old bus, and with DIY builds it's only worth what someone is willing to pay. That said, it's hard to say without seeing it man.

For some, a bus that's already started will work, but for a lot that want to design their own customer floorplan, a bus thats already been started just adds more work because you have to redo things.

The thing I always point out is that people wouldn't be selling their successful projects... Buying a partially converted bus is what I conder the worst case.

That's always been my opinion as well.
I'd pay MORE for a fresh-from-school bus.
