International 3700 - Good Conversion Candidate?

I'm interested in a 1991 International 3700 for sale locally.

https://tucson.craigslist.org/cto/d/...592297677.html

It has a 7.3L IDI engine with aftermarket turbo and an Allison AT545 transmission. Mileage is listed at 33,000!

Would love to get some feedback on this engine-transmission combination. Thanks!

I would agree with that.

The 7.3idi does not make the power that the later 7.3's do and the AT545 is not my first choice in Allison transmission (no lockup and no overdrive).

Not bashing just pointing out that there are some limitations on the drivetrane. If you buy this bus don't be in a big hurry when it comes to mountain driving.

Nice looking bus, nice size but a bit pricey.

If I found a similar bus with a T444e and MT643 for $4k I would probably buy it myself.

Ya, but this one has a "bulletproof" AT545. I'm unfamiliar with that model.
He says he's only owned it for 6 years and put 24k on it. That means in it's 1st 21 years it averaged 428miles/yr, hard to believe. He asked if I wanted it's full history and I said yes. I'm still waiting his reply.
