says the auction win was for $2200 that doesnt seem too bad for the OP.. id say fly up make an adventure and drive it home... most likely the A/C is busted but thats not a bad fix.. and it might work, but the ones used in alot of those cutaways were known to leak and the Ford FS-10 comporessor was a PITA..

looks like a pretty decent bus!

I'm flying over to see the bus at the end of the month.
49$ one way per person.
Then renting a car there.
It is 3 adults and one baby. Total came out to be 210$. Very cheap for a fun adventure.

Well this bus is in NJ. So possible rust problems.
But I got a "get out of jail card" if that is the case (wrong maker/model on vehicle description).

I'm okay with dropping money on the bus but will keep the build cheap. I plan on making it a minimal camper build.
I'll fix the bus' front and rear AC and whatever else comes up.

the A/C is pretty simple on those.. usually just a good cleaning of the coils all over inside and out, some new O-rings, evacuate and charge and be nice N cold... ive repaired a bunch of them over the years.. occasionally had to replace the ford compressor because they love to drop a vaslve plate and only pump on half the stroke...
