Should I buy this bus!

https://m.publicsurplus.com/sms/auction/view?auc=2203852



What do you think the overall length would be ?
Probalay under 35 feet or so.
Trying to get info about the transmission ?
I know dt466 are the BEST.
Thinking of doing a roof raise?
Can anyone give me there opinion to pull the trigger on this?

How hard would working in this engine be compared to dog nose( conventional ) ??
Donít know if that was right or not.
Iím going to bid on it .
Trying to get in contact to see if thereís more pictures and info about the transmission.
Thinking of doing a roof raise.
I wanted a mid size handi cap bus and I think this is it. Maybe itís just over 30ft?

Did you bid on it? Went for $3k, fair price. Again, I doubt the mileage, and tranny info would have been nice.

I drove up and looked at that bus last week. It's about 31 feet long. Interior is 25 feet from back of driver seat to back door. Has a AT545 transmission in it. Runs good. Didn't drive it. Tires have lots of tread depth but are old, especially the front tires, which have a lot of weather-checking in the sidewalls. Didn't see any rust under the bus, but the plywood under the rubber mat floor has some really soft spots in the rear. It was taken out of use over a year ago, and several of the windows don't close. When I was there it was raining, and there was water standing in the bus. Has AC but it doesn't work. They have basic maintenance logs all the way back to new, including every time fuel was put in the bus. Other than oil and filter changes, there were a few notes, but not a lot else has been done to it.
I didn't bid on it, but they still have it and will probably re-list it. They originally had it listed at $4500, and dropped it to $3k when it didn't sell.

I think it didn’t sell no one bided.
What got me to not bid was the at545 transmission but... I’m starting to reconsider just getting something like this and dropping / learning how to put a 5 speed 3060 in it. Where are you located ? I would of had to come out from Houston to go see it. So tires, roof raise, flooring , insulation , ac , and possibly do something with the transmission .

Oh yeah I called international and gave them the last 8 of the vin.
They gave me a lst (line tracking information )
And I asked if they could see what transmission and rear end it had. They said at545 4 speed but also I’m wondering about air brakes and air ride seat or anything like that
