If the transmission is an AT-545 forget it. The MT-643 is best. You might want to see what Greg has for sale on his website. He always has good buses.

Actually, my usual $%^&*box is a Ford E-450 PSD. Our only pusher shuttle is #173, that crappy Spartan. We have 5 other Eldos (including my crapbox)--2 E-450's (1 V-10, one PSD, both wheelchair buses) & 3 big International 3800's.

Other buses are a 2002 & a pair of 2005 E-450's (all diesel) with Glaval bodies (another 2002 Glaval burned a month or so ago), a 2001 E-450 PSD with a ThomasBuilt body, 2 2001 E-450 PSD's with falling-apart Starcrap (Starcraft) bodies, a 1998 E-350 5.4 gasser with a 21-passenger Champion body, a 2000 E-450 PSD with an identical Champ body, a 2002 E-450 PSD with a Goshen/Supreme body (and 150K miles), a 2001 E-450 PSD with a way-too-big 20-passenger Champion luggage-van body (chews up springs, shocks, brakes, and transmissions in a hurry), a 2001 E-450 V-10 with a Turtle Top body and a cool hidden w/c lift, and a 1998 Freightliner flat-nose (5.9 Cummins/AT545) with a Goshen body set up for 5 wheelchairs.

Bigger buses are a 1998 Blue Bird TranShuttle front-engine (Cummins/lockup Allison) 28-passenger, a 1961 GMC TDH-5300 series "Fishbowl" transit (49-passneger), with a 6V71 Jimmy & V730 tranny, and a 1995 VanHool 45' coach (53-passenger) with an M11 Cummins & Allison B600.

And last week, I blew up my favorite bus! It is a 1996 E-350 PSD with a Goshen w/c lift body.

Recently retired buses:
1997 Freightliner snub-nose, 29-passenger Champion body, 5.9/AT500.
1995 E-350 PSD, 25-passenger Champ (2 identical buses)
1996 E-350 PSD, 17-passenger Champ
2002 Freightliner FB65, ISB/OD Allison, Eldo w/c body, dash fire in April
1992 E-350 gasser (351), 16-passenger w/c Champ, cracked frame.

And, of course, we have bus 199: 1980-something E-350 with a gas 300 I-6 & a C6, and over 400,000 miles. Body is a 16-passenger Champion w/c lift.
