I been buying buses from different states, New York I will stay away from. yes the price may be cheap but there is no cure when the rust has eat up the under carriage of the bus, that's the reason why state patrol will not pass the inspection of this buses anymore not safe to transport kids, therefore not safe at all. I don't know why people will go cheap on the purchase of a bus and yet spend a lot more in fixing then when they break down.

Think I found the one...

2004 International Amtran dt with Allison MD3060 - wants 5k.
Has lift (for motorcycle) - Rear engine - 90k miles.
Should I pull the trigger if he comes down a bit?

Less than $5k.

Unless it is a rust bucket or has other issues I would certainly jump on it. I am partial to RE's and that is a fantastic drive train.

That is a great looking bus. It is one of the very few I have seen in the last twenty years that came from the factory with a green floor and green seat covers.

Considering the age, mileage, condition, and power package I would say you are looking at a terrific bargain. Most dealers would have that priced retail around $12K-$14K.

For some people the lift would be a plus. For others a lift would be a minus. If you are looking for a lift bus I don't think you will find a better one at 2x or 3x the price.

By the way, those front seats with panels are most likely C.E. White convertible bus seats. With the panel folded up it is a normal 3-student/2-adult school bus seat. With the panel folded down it becomes child booster seat with restraint.

Try to see if you can actually verify that mileage.

Ok. Thats what i thought. Seen them for 12k+. Will verify miles and rust when I talk price today. Will also let the group know if all 3 are available. If he still has 3 more and others are real buyers we may be able to strike a good deal for all 3.

I think it's worth that just to NOT have an "E" on the 466! Great combo.
