I'd be wanting to check beforehand how easy it would be to delete that Diesel Particulate Filter. It's a retro-fit, and what is fitted can be removed.

I have no first hand experience but I have read about folks removing them and it appears to be fairly straight forward.

One gent was able to sell his and recoup a chunk of what he had paid for his bus.

I've seen prices of up to $6000 for a good, working DPF.

They're easy to delete the aftermarket ones.

Buses like that go for $2500-$5000.
A friend of mine who doesn't post much one here, Wim, bought one of the Renton Wa buses and its CHERRY. BBAA with basically the top of the line everything. All the bells and whistles and in minty condition ready to roll. He paid $4000. A bargain.

Just wanted to point out that listing says it has the MD3060, not allison 3000. Wish they had pictures

The 3060 is a member of the Allison 3000 family and they're generically referred to as 3000's.

Update:
We are trying to reach harlows bus sales to ask about a conventional bus at their spokane location. Unfortunately that is the only conventional bus on our radar atm. Hopefully we will get in contact with them soon. Thank you all for your advice and efforts!

It sure looks like a prison bus or possibly used for institutional transit.

Thanks, were trying to work with them now. Contacting them has been a project for us, but we managed to reach someone and ask them some questions about one of their conventional buses. Just waiting on more information now. If it's the right bus we will pick it up ASAP, if not, we will keep checking the auctions.

The bus I just bought fits those requirements quite well, but it is located in Eastern ND not PNW

I see from the picture labels that it is a former DOC (Department of Corrections) bus.
