I think they're asking about $2000-$3000 more than its worth.

I agree with this. For ME, $3000 would be tops if it was in super condition with a drivetrain that I liked.

Oh that would help! It has a... DT something engine, 171k miles. Pulled with two other busses from a school district by a single subsequent owner and kept on a lot. Had maintenance done when it was retired last year. Tires are older and will need replacing soon although the guy reckons it will make it home fine (still, to me that would suggest wiping $600 off the price right there).

And no worries, no roof raise planned! I do like the unique front style and the placement of the handicap door.

The price seems inflated to me as well. I think I might have to wait until next year when the market is flooded again... Everything in a thousand mile radius (PS, Govdeals, CL) is all way overpriced. The best deals so far have been from Harlow's, although they have all gas shorties right now and I'm very firm on diesel.

$600 wouldn't even buy 6 Chinese tires. If it has a DT, it is probably a DT360.

I emailed him. I can't remember anything unless I write it down... My bad! I should add it has a flat floor... No wheel wells!

I wouldn't give $1500 for the bus.

That's the max I'd pay for it.

OK! If I can talk the guy down I'd take it for $1,500. If I sound informed I have a better shot than just a blind BECAUSE. What's the reasoning?
