I can pick them up and take them. Are they flying into Hobby or Bush airport? Bush is the big airport on the No. side of town, where Hobby is smaller and on the So. side. Cleveland is north of Houston. Just let me know where and when, and I'll be there.

Maybe its just me, but I find the wheelchair lift busses go for less money than ones that are not.

Sweet!!
I've got em flying in to the big airport on United.
I'll PM you, and send you fuel money with them. Shauns an awesome driver, but if someone could help him get on the road that would be great.

I paid quite a bit for an auction shorty. But a bus like this on Ebay, CL, or a dealer would be a lot more.

I think the reason I got redbyrd so cheap was because its a shorty without a wheelchair lift... the other busses in that auction with lifts went for twice the money with identical drivetrains.

If anyone wants a similar short bus with 466 there are three in Naples FL listed on ebay.
They're higher mileage with high hours, though.

I'd still get up off my wallet if I find a bus like that with the for wheel drive option.

I didnt find them when i looked.. how many hours / miles? when i was logged into dead pirate;s DT466 this weekend it said the motor has 281,000 miles on it but you sure wouldnt know it by hearing it run... sounds like a new engine.. just purrs along..
the DT466 has a Long life when treated well.

They're all 250k++ miles, one is like 300k++. All have 11k-15k hours.
If the prices stay low maybe I'll buy one for spare parts.
I'm not scared of a 466 with 250k on it, but I'm sure happy mine only has 182k. Seems to me that I see PLENTY of these running with 350k on them. Hopefully I can treat this bus nice and get decades of use out of it.
