Selling MY Baby! 1992 Ward Senator w/Roof Raise

We hate to do this, but we have some life stuff to deal with and too much on our plate at the moment.
We're looking to sell our beloved Roll Your Own bus. A good chunk of the sale will go directly to helping pay for our friend Eddie Sampson's battle with cancer. He needs all the help he can get, and rather than beg for money on those fund-me sites, I thought I'd pony up and do what I can to really raise some cash for him. At LEAST 15% -20% will be going right to Ed.

So- about the bus.
Its a really sweet 1992 Ward Senator aka AmTran Genesis. It is pretty much the ULTIMATE skoolie blank slate, so to speak. It has virtually EVERYTHING one looks for in a bus to convert. FIVE underside storage bays!
Its got all the HARD stuff done already, and compared to the crap buses at dealers, this is a way better buy for someone wanting a blank slate.
The roof was raised 10" using custom fabricated rib extensions then they were welded. THe front cap is custom fabricated by Eddie himself, he's an excellent welder/fabricator. From floor to middle of ceiling is a bit over 85"! Feels amazing and its very spacious now.
The entire underside of the roof was meticulously prepped and primed, an extra step not many hasty conversions take, but definitely will make for a LONG lasting result.
I also have some brand new stuff that goes with the bus. New rear mudflaps, brand new service manuals, and more.
This bus has the highly sought after mechanical DT466 and allison 643 engine/tranny combo. One of the best drivetrains available and rock solid!
As much as we love our bus, we love our friend Ed and we have way too many other things going on.
So anyone wanting a really SUPREME bus to build their skoolie on here's your chance!

Make me an offer on either or both, worst I can do is say no.
With our wedding coming up, and eddie's need for help, well- these buses need to find new homes!

IIRC I'd mentioned it to you back when.
I've been mulling this over for a while.
We have to sell our stuff, even our house, and reorganize.

I gotta do what I can for eddie, he's an amazing guy and deserves all the love we can send.
Anyhow, spread the word for me. I want these buses to go to a good home or homes.
I didn't make this decision easily, but sometimes life gets REAL, and its how we handle these things that makes us who we are. Eddie and getting married in March are much more important to me than any possession.
Selling our subaru, a couple mopeds, some "home defense" items, and lots of other stuff.
This is where it gets real!

I see you found the other thread. Any info you need, just let me know.
I'm open to reasonable offers, but these are both really desirable buses, imo.

If so, then my memory is going. Wife, 4 kids, and a job at a company that's been bought and merged twice into a $20 billion multinational (and all the insane management decisions that come with that) in so many years will do it. And on top of it my eyes are going (I'm needing bifocals now, but fighting it all the way)....

That's why we have buses!!!
