Selling my 40ft Thomas schoool bus in California

Martinez CA

40ft Thomas Saf-T-Liner school bus. Inside is stripped, 2 bench seats reinstalled for temporary seating.



New Batteries
New Wipers
New Turn signal switch
New Belt
New headlights/highbeams
Recently inspected

Runs well, has been driven in 30 to 95 degree weather with no problems.

I made the mistake of buying something larger than my capability, and I need to start over with something smaller. The inside is gutted and ready for you to install whatever you want.

For photos and offers, contact me at AWebb3701@gmail.com

If this thing is tagged and titled in CA and it's a motorhome title and it's CARB-blessed, it'd almost be worth buying for the chassis and drivetrain!

Working under the assumption that this is the same bus he was troubleshooting a starting issue with a little while back...

It's a 1991, rear engine, 12 valve Cummins 5.9 (mechanical engine). No idea what transmission it has.

Sorry for the delay. It is in fact the 1991 rear engine. I fixed the starting problem with fresh batteries and some cleanup. The transmission is an Allison I believe. It's hard for me to tell, since I can't find any identifying markings on it.

It IS tagged and titled as a motorhome, I currently have it insured as such as well, so I know there aren't any problems in that field either.

I'm looking for 10k, but I'm willing to negotiate depending on how soon it's picked up. I'm actively working on the bus in case it doesn't sell, so my leeway for haggling gets smaller the more money I put into this thing.

Outside of bus, you can still see a little bit of the graffiti from its previous home in Oakland.

Engine compartment. Inspector said the rust is surface only, with the exception of the Radiator (top right) which will need rebuilding eventually.

If you can snap a picture of the side of the transmission, we can probably tell you what model it is.

Update: Price has dropped to 7k, since I'm now actively trying to move this thing before the police tow it because my WONDERFUL neighbors aren't happy with a renovation project in their neighborhood.

Is it off the street?, are you in a HOA?, can they legally tow it?

It's on the street, because our neighborhood doesn't have space on the properties for a bus.

They can legally tow it, because there are a bunch of laws about size limits that they weren't going to enforce or even inform me of until today, but they are now because there have been ELEVEN complaints in the last 2 weeks, from people who don't want to talk to me, but love to complain to the cops.

My first bus was "free" but ended up costing me at least five grand in fines and lawsuits. I didn't get another bus for about a decade or so- I wanted to make SURE I have somewhere to keep my bus this time!
Best of luck to you, AWebb3701.
