Not sure what kind of Cummins has 8 cylinders except for very old ones.

That looks like an awesome deal, but yeah. I'm suspicious as well. Can't hurt to go check it out.

I would also be extremely suspicious of an almost 20-year old transit bus with only 95,000 miles.

I can think of a few different Cummins engines with 8 cylinders but none that would have been in a bus of that size or vintage.

Definitely go see it for yourself. Don't buy a pig-in-a-poke.

It wouldnt be an 8 cyl Cummins. If they cant advertise it correctly, they surely dont care much about selling it.

Pictures aren't all the same bus. Reads like a Chinese instruction manual.

Good catch! That's hilarious.. Yep, the last picture shows a bus with a wall that angles inward about half way up and a rear, passenger side door. Definitely not the same bus. Supremely sketch bag.. If it's nearby it'd still be fun to look into. Sounds like the sellers are real dopes. You might be able to get it for a song (if it's even worth THAT).
