That is a perfect bus.

Make the deal happen.

Don't let it slip away.

We will help you with the rest.

Bus

Depending on the price that looks like a good deal. I have a Blue Bird 83 passenger and it is 38 feet long. Your space will fill up quickly so in my book the longer buses are better. You do have to watch the overhang when turning but the shorter wheel base helps. If you can do it financially I would say go for it. I know I would love to have it. Welcome to the best Skoolie site there is and good luck.

Thanks for the responses all. Here is a little more information on the bus. I'm going to see it early next week.

1993 bb all american
8.2 cummins re
md3060
70,000 miles
40 ft x 8 ft. approx 78 inches floor to ceiling
new tires (not brand new i dont think)
air brakes

Not sure when it was last in service. The owner is an engine mechanic who got it from a dealer about a year ago. He said he put tires on it and cleaned out the fuel system. Hes asking 8500 which is out of my range but he said he open to offers. I agree with nat, It seems like the perfect bus. Just hoping he'll come down enough that i can afford it. I'll keep you posed, hopefully with a new thread in the conversion section!

Definitely grab it if you can haggle him down to your price range.

I'd not pay anything close to 8500 for it.

I was thinking 6000 would be close to my upper limit on that. Even that is more that i wanted to spend but it seems to be a gem. What do you think a fair price is?

right now scrap is at about $6.10 a hundred, when I bought mine it was $12.75 a hundred

that is what drove my buses price up to $3500 or $4000 dont remember

Alot of places know what they can scrap/and part out for and use that as leverage...have fun and stay safe

look up how to read tire date codes the 4 digit...wait ...be right back....I'm back

I posted this last week

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


13th week of 2009

if the tires have only 3 digits they are too old to run safely, they were made pre 2000

only the date code applies on our tires

Here are some retread FAQ's
Tire Retread & Repair Information Bureau

just info in this thread please



7 and 8 year old tires are pushing it to me
