Brakes on a GMC 6000

My husband and I have just become interested in getting an old bus to live in. A friend of ours is living that way and it looks pretty appealing.
I found something on my local Craigslist:
http://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/cto/1899478036.html

Its free! So I'm skeptical. He says the breaks might need work. What might that actually look like? How big of a project is it? And how might I begin to figure out how to do it myself? Or find someone else to help with it?

Any advice would be deeply appreciated!

Go get this bus and have some new adventures. That bus is an easy fixer. That year usually has self adjusting brakes. Get some insurance and drive the bus home. You can fix any faults. Send me some pics and tell where ya need help. Frank in Idaho
