What a waste ....

https://columbus.craigslist.org/cto/...592610979.html

An 8 window flat front Bluebird........What a waste......
How long ya figure it sat there to sink the tires that deep in gravel? A VERY LONG TIME...that's how long.

Wrecked in rear ( not shown???)...bad brakes ( air line or tank leaks?...runs and drives??? LMAO...I dobt it.
And the seller imagines it's still worth 3K???????

Looks like this bus is headed for the scrap yard........ a shame.

Wrecked in rear ( not shown???)...bad brakes ( air line or tank leaks?...runs and drives??? LMAO...I doubt it.
And who knows what else.....
And the seller imagines it's still worth 3K???????

Like I said.....a shame to see what could have been a good bus go to hell.

Not to mention all the buses that got sold for scrap when prices were up.

Just a real shame on this one as it's a mid length flattie.... not a common bus to find in this neck of the woods.

Like I said.........I predict this one goes to scrap.

Actually the damage on the back doesn’t look to bad
It does say runs and drives.
I bet you could get it for quite a bit less.

Nevermind, no delete option. Pictures on that listing were added after this thread started. Rear damage pics weren't there before.

Been my experience that "runs & drives" is Ohio slang for it starts and moves but that's it.

Also I never even consider anything that is photographed with the wheels sunk that deep in the ground. That fact alone is very telling of the bus and the seller IMHO.

I won't even go into the various pics taken at different times thing.

These 3 things alone say much.
Let's see --no brakes, been sitting long time, likely tires shot. 3 of the biggest red flags on bus shopping.

And that is just what we know.

Not worth the time unless you wanted it for a tool shed, storage building or river camp somewhere close to where it's parked and it was priced at $1000 or less. (Today's scrap prices)

I'll pass.
