I have a 1986 Blue Bird all American FE with an 8.2 Turbo DD "Fuel Saver" or "Fuel Pincher" which gets fantastic MPGs.....
So mine wasn't blessed enough to be a church bus. And we only paid $1400 for ours. No rust, body is semi decent shape (some dings). I don't think I could get $8K for it either before or after conversion. What is it about once belonging to a church that makes EVERYTHING worth more $$? Ours used to belong to a white water rafting outfit out of Long Creek SC not far from where we used to live when we lived in SC... and NC.
