Best places to look for medium buses for sale?

I've been looking at local school districts, and they tend to run to shorts and longs.

I was wondering if somebody knows of auctions or listings that lean more toward mediums.

Tx ahead of time.

The auctions are going to sell everything and not really specialize in anything specific. The mid size buses are out there, just keep searching.

medium bus? full size chassis, like 6 to 9 windows? I am sure every school district utilizes these for various routes. they are not as popular as the van cutaways, or the full size 40ft busses. I have an 8 window and the search took me 7 plus months until I finally found my bus. keep up the search.

Looking for something like this (there are 5 of them), or something with a bus nose?

Didn't realize all those are already over $5k with a week to go. Dealer bidding for sure.

Do you know where it might be possible to find a used seat like the type in that bus (with the shoulder belts and the fold-out child seats)? Or what they're even called? I can't seem to ever find something like that in searches.

I want to re-mount a single bus seat in the right front of my bus for passengers, but I'm running into issues with getting proper three-point restraints on it.

Here's some older ones for $.99. Don't have adult belts, but have the child belts. I think with a welder and a grinder, harnesses would be easy to install for grown passengers.

Found this, only one left though. Seems they had them in black and gray also but are sold out.

Start watching build threads on that type bus, you find someone letting them go free.
