Summer Camp has 6 buses for sale, 3 Crowns, 1 Intl. 1 Blue Bird, 1 Oshkosh

We have 6 buses we are looking to sell immediately. They have all been used for years with our summer camp however we are switching to using 15 passenger vans and would like to clear these out as soon as possible. All have various issues but 5 out of 6 ran for at least part of the summer. Our diesel mechanic has agreed to field any questions to potential buyers. We have a 1980 Crown(manual transmission), 2 1986 Crowns, (Crowns are all black) a 1979 Intl, (painted like an ice cream cake) a 1986 Blue Bird(painted like tie dye) and a 1989 Oshkosh. We would take $3000 a piece for the 2 non-manual Crowns, $5000 for the manual, $2000 each for the rest. Or $12,000 for all 6 if sold together and the buyer agrees to have them off our campus by the end of August. We can offer the buyer a free cabin on campus to stay for up to a week(after Aug 16) while organizing repairs or towing. We are located in Welches Oregon. My email is dan@wearecamp.com. Thanks

Are we suppose to guess which one doesn't run? What are the issues you mention? 5 out of 6 ran for PART of the summer, does this mean all of them may not run?

one of the '86 Crowns doesn't run, it may be just a dead battery but it hasn't moved in 3 years, currently the Blue Bird is parked with an e-brake issue. And the '80 Crown is currently down

So, three of six don't move or run. Any guesses as to the condition of the remaining three. OUCH !!

I love these guessing threads. no pics, no details, no engine info, private non-commercial operation, I just bet there's issues. Probably only worth a ""No Thanks". I'd only be interested if you gave up a little more info. You may not know, or care, ...but we do. Just because it's a Crown doesn't mean it's worth having, especially after all these years.

Hi, there are definitely issues with the buses, they need to be looked at by somebody who knows buses. they used to be reliable and we used them for years but we longer need them and they mostly sit undriven. Engine is a Detroit Diesel 8V71 568 cu V8 mid engine
