I'm looking at govdeals and surplus public auction. Any other websites?

Thanks for the response.

keep a look out on the firums here too in the busses for sale thread... often times people post links to auctions or crsaigslist ads of various busses they see for sale... if in an area where forum members live, ask nicely and someone might go inspect a bus for you that captures your interest..

I'd gladly take it for the current price if I didn't have to drive it home from IL.
Would make a killer landscaping work van.

I'm guessing that thing will go for 2k+.
What you think about the rust under it?

I'm just saying that if it were a grand or less and close-by it would be a decent deal for a beater work van.

This is a 1986 short bus in good condition. Runs, drives, and shifts fine. It has a 350 cid chevy gas engine and automatic transmission. The engine was replaced in 1995 and has just over 37,000 miles on it the bus itself has just over 93,000 miles. This has been used for classroom field trips the last 10 years.

Condition: GOOD

Well, I just don't trust anything in the description. My last bus said good tires and all 4 rear were dry rot when I picked up.
I might go for it. I need another road trip.

If you think your last bus needed work you'll be aghast when you see the project I'm undertaking.

I wouldn't go across the country for a beater work van, but I'd trust a govdeals description over any CL or Ebay ad.
All I need is something to pull a utility trailer with a mower and some yard tools around. I'm high bidder on an older GM flatbed one ton truck right now, we'll see how this one goes. I bid on about three vehicles at any given time. I've won two of them in two years of bidding but with my method I've scored two really amazing deals on great vehicles. And a few other doodads from the local university.
