Still looking for a bus in PNW

Well we tried to be patient while looking for a specific bus, but apparently that was too specific. Since we now need a bus ASAP, in order to be able to insulate it before winter, we are now looking for a bus that meets the following requirements.

Anywhere from 1990 to 2003
Anywhere from 9 to 12 window
DT466 or Cummins 8.3
Less than 200k miles
Less than 8000 hours
MT643 or Allison 2000/2500/3000 tranny
Little to no rust
Located in the pacific northwest
Less than $5000

Please feel free to say something if you think these requirements are too specific.

Thank you

Keep a close eye on the auctions. A couple that fit your spec went at auction in Salem a couple of weeks ago.

Harlow Bus sales had a couple last time I talked to them. One of them was in Auburn WA. Cummins 8.3 & MT-643.

That doesn't seem too demanding, especially with peak sales season fast approaching. Many of the buses that will be sold in the next few months are still carrying kids for the next week or so.

I know. I feel like we should have gotten one of those, but we were being too picky at that time. We were only looking for a 9 window at that time. Someone else on this forum grabbed one of them tho.

As far as I know, importing isn't an option. Great idea tho!
