Everything he had priced reasonably was actually overpriced and had major mechanical issues. One of the buses I was about to make an offer on, a 1997 Thomas wouldnt break 40mph on the highway. He had another one but you could pressurize the air tanks with the blowby. The 1993 I couldnt get out of neutral because the panel had been robbed of bolts. The more I looked at it the more $$$ i saw in needed repairs to make it home. He had one 1999 Thomas with A/C but he wanted $10,500 because he had to put a new engine in it. So after my disappointment my wife found one close to Atlanta. Drove 7 1/2 hours from Tampa and bought it. It came with a water heater, stove and fridge and built in coach a/c.
Although it has the 5.9, it had alot more power than any of the Cats I drove earlier and the only rust on it is minor surface on the shell. Well worth my 1200 mile adventure. Pegged to the floor cruised along at 60-62 and got a sweet 10 mpg all the way home.
Looking forward to your build thread.
Me too! That's exactly what we got!
