Now I've gone and done it!

I bought a BUS!!
I've done my due diligence to the best of my ability thanks to all the great info here and on a few other FB pages ...
I started October thinking I wanted a dog nose mid size bus but as I learned my idea of the "perfect" bus evolved to a RE bigger bus.
I semi impulsively bought a 2001 International (AmTran) RE, 11 row, storage bays below, air brakes, DT466. I do not know which transmission it has -
Totally STOKED and a little freaked out at the same time!
I have not picked her up - gotta do the title work and get the insurance on her. I expect to go in a few weeks. She is only 200 miles from my home so manageable in a day.
I'll try to post the photos from ebay.
Thanks for being such great people and I look forward to sharing my journey with you all and of course asking a bazillion questions. bus mine 1.JPG

Is the shifter manual or electronic?

If it's a manual shifter, it will be a AT545 or a MT643.

If it's electric, it should be the MD3060.

not always... I've seen YouTube vids of 3060's with manual shifters. Some districts wouldn't buy the push button ones.

It's a push button - 5 speed. Thanks for the info on that.

Thanks for that info.

However most MD3060's do have the electronic shifter.

One thing we do know is if it's a electric shifter, it's not the AT545 or the MT643.
