Bluebird Mini Bus

My wife is currently looking to purchase a Mini Bus that is probably around a 1994. It has about 50,000 miles on it. We are planning to convert it into a mobile dog grooming business. We have heard the 6.2L diesels are slower, which isn't a big deal. Most clients would be within 5 to 10 miles, with the occasional freeway drive. We originally were looking to get a 7.3 powerstroke shuttle bus, but we really like the vintage look of the mini bus. It's very unique and nothing like any of the dog grooming buses around.

What are your thoughts on these buses and the 6.2L diesel? Problems to look out for? And I also believe this one is from the army so it has the 165HP motor.

50,000 miles in 24 years?

There are mini school buses with 7.3's if you really want one.
