What is it worth

I recent got a bus from a friend. When it got parked it was running but Iím trying to figure out what is it worth and what year it might be? Iíve looked it up and canít really find anything helpful but it has international 1700 on the side and maybe a v8? Any advice would be helpful.

I agree. That's not a project bus. It's not worth saving.

Sorry for the snark.
From the front configuration, it appears to be a Loadstar, '60s vintage, with a 345 or a 392 V8 under the hood.
This might help you a little in digging up it's truths:

Good luck!

Late 60's > mid 70's, likely a 345 gasser v8.
If you can get it running good, the engine might bring $400.~$500.00 the rest is scrap weight.

While anything can be resurrected from the dead with enough cash, unless you're really hooked on this particular bus, best to find one that's been sitting less...

I finally got to get the plates off of it and itís a 64 and it says on the plate itís a 1704 what ever that means and it does have a gas motor Iím not sure which one Iíll post some pics maybe yíall could tell me? My plans not sure yet thatís why Iím try to get some advice on what there worth? Or what else the parts are going for I donít want to just scrap the whole thing but itís not worth getting towed or trying to restore or anything like that to me. But thanks for everyoneís help and advice.
