Yeah, and the 8.3 with mt643 would seal the deal for me! That mileage is insanely low for the year.
There was one similar here in Fl when I was bus shopping. It was longer but was virtually the same.
Went for like 4 g's.
Just my opinion, but to me these are as good as it gets in a bus unless you're lucky or wealthy enough to get a Crown.

My first bus was an Arizona bus. Absolutely no rust. Hammer price was a bit steep. $7100 plus 10% premium, batteries and a starter before you pick it up. That's over $8k.

I won't ever again.

A rust free bus is invaluable.

I have spent thousands fixing this rust and I'm far from done.

Future buses I convert will be shipped in from rust free states.

Yours was rustier than I'd ever want to buy. By rust I mean more like a few bits of rust. Not a frame up restoration.

Drive Train .................straight and rust free. Only way to Go: Platform justifies investment..........Rust never Sleeps...............I've seen Thomas Buses come direct from the factory already beginning to rust................Rust Sucks............of course there are degrees of rust: I hate rust. And dislike patching, welding, filling and contending with it......................just knowing it's present, even if I can cut it or hide it away, everytime I look at the bus I know it's is or was there. Ruins the experience for me................Discussed the Disgust of Rust............
