Re: Pricing out a bus

I paid less than most for my fullsize shorty($1000), but while I was looking I did see the average between $2-3k... And at that price it should be pretty much turnkey and ready for a road trip without to much work... Tires are very expensive, make sure they're in good shape... And if it's a diesel check for the last maintenance records... It can get spendy just in filters and fluids...

Re: Pricing out a bus

Here's another source worth checking out...7K Bus Sales in Houston. Bought my first BB from Charlie there over 20 years ago. Was great to deal with and had very good prices on good stock.

I'll sell you my old one for $1000. 3/4 length (53 passenger) 1983 international, Thomas body, DT366 diesel, AT545 automatic trans. It's a bit of a drive from here in central Illinois to Texas.

Re: Pricing out a bus

I paid $2,000 for mine. If you can, when you are dead serious about the bus find a truck mechanic and offer him $100 for an hour or so of his time and ask him to inspect the heck out of it and tell you what it needs done. At that point you'll know and if the seller doesn't want that to be done then that is your sign to go elsewhere. I would've done that. Forgot to look for tires $400 a pop and some other minor things.
