Two Fine Crowns For Sale, 6-71 Detroits, 35ft and 40ft

Many Someones have said they wanted, and wished for, a Crown. So here's two outstanding examples.

Doesn't get any better than this anymore, price and overall conditions are unbeatable, while getting harder and harder to find. So don't let it get away.

Superior condition Charter Operators' '82 35ft 2-axle Crown with turbo 6-71 and 10 spd (non-OD) transmission. Still in service and owners pride and joy. Needs yard space and must part with it. This is a gigantic value and it will give years and years of trouble free service. Pics. $5500.

Very straight and excellent driving '73 40ft 3-axle Tandem Crown with non-turbo 6-71 10 spd (non-OD) does honest 65 mph. One of the best driving Crowns I've ever driven, brought it home 170 miles with no smoke, pulling harder up the hills than it should, didn't try to get hot, ran cool all the way, smooth as silk and quiet inside. no window rattles or anything. All in all a fine example of the best of the Los Angeles built Vintage Crowns. It definitely needs some work, but it's all surface cosmetics and some light mechanical issues, but overall for a bus this old it's in outstanding condition. The engine is believed to have been replaced and new less than 100k miles ago, and believe me it looks, sounds, and drives like it. The entire running gear is tight and runs like the thoroughbred it is. Paint is crap but still serviceable. It's been sitting under a tree with stuff fallen all over the roof. Underlying body condition is totally straight with some light surface rust in the usual places. No corrosion, or cancer noted anywhere, a typical California Crown with normal age, wear, and tear. One minor tear in left front panel under the driver, below the floor, so no leakage into the interior. Easily fixed or patched. An outstanding shell to start with for a conversion with nothing major wrong with it. Pics. $4000

These are both very well priced and should be of interest to anyone serious about getting a proper Crown with little, to no issues, and many decades of low cost enjoyment left in them. They're both located in the Los Angeles area.

Serious inquiries please and be sure you know what you're looking for. If you are, then you'll appreciate these two. Contact via site internal PM / notifications and I'll get back to you and you can ask more questions and make arrangements. I'm available for teaching and instructing in how to properly drive (especially the RoadRanger 10spd) and for delivery/ferry services if you need help getting it home. I'll show you how to drive it on the way home, and work with you while I'm there to help you learn.

OK. I'm interested! Been looking for one forever. Where are you located? I have a list of questions, but I'll get to that. Right I'm drooling at the pics! I WANT one of these.. Unless of course you've already sold them.
Thanks!

Mismichelleb. I've sent three separate replies using the internal PM that you sent to me. I still see no indications they were ever sent back to you. I don't like to do this, but you can contact me direct at mikemcc2k@yahoo.com and we can arrange to meet. The '72 is still available and located near Riverside. I won't say more here until we can talk directly.
