green bus

came across this bus this morning - owner stopped paying storage fees so storage guy is selling it - high ceiling, looks like it might be the right length, has the 366 I want, I think - standard trans with 2 speed rear end - $600 ($Canadian ) - has a funny little hoist on the back - might lift something with the aid of a come-a-long -- seats are out

Great looking bus. Buy it--if it turns out to be no good you'd still get your money back for scrap. Caveats: back fees? Air brakes? Safety/smog certs required? Actual fuel type, gasoline, propane, related regulations? Wheel type? Rust?

I really like the sliding windows and the high roof.

propane - likely a 366 - air assisted hydraulic brakes - have to check it for rust - it does seem to have some rust - if there are liens, back fees, etc, it won't be me dealing with them - lol - I don't know the wheel type or tire size yet - any vehicle brought in from out of province has to be safety checked, so that would apply to this bus too - not a bad thing really - don't want to be on some snow covered road in the middle of the night, in -35 temps and have to crawl under to deal with the brakes or something that would have been found with a simple safety check - my son is qualified to do safety checks, but not with his own or family owned vehicles

Little rough around the edges but good bones, like the style. Interesting windows, look just like mine if so they are nice quality windows. Think you might have found a good one.

Air assisted brakes? or vacuum assisted?
