I am looking for a short bus to turn into a mobile art studio. I found a 1986 E-350 gas shortie on craigslist, they are asking 2500. The owner says it runs and starts good.
Here are the stats
1986 1986 E-350 SCHOOL BUS odometer: 100659 VIN: 1FDJE37HXGHB67735 bus drive : rwd fuel : gas transmission : automatic title status : clean cylinders : 8 cylinders condition: good
I am not super savvy mechanically, so am looking for something fairly reliable that I dont have to fuss with all the time. I am not going to drive it long distances, as I live on an island and want an on-island rig. Just trips to the beach etc.., so I can make my art in different atmospheres. So gas mileage not a huge factor for me.
Anyone have experience with this sort of beast? It is in my price range, but perhaps it would pay off in the long run to spend more money upfront... i am hesitant to buy something cheap, as I know you often get what you pay for.... however I don't need anything glamorous, just utilitarian.
that has a good start inside, it has cabinets and a spot for a woodstove.

Any input would be helpful! Thanks Bus people!
