It's for sure at the upper end of what people here would be considering, but it looks pretty nice. The black paint is unfortunate and will need to be corrected ASAP!

That's a sweet looking bus.

I'd be interested. I may try to haggle a bit but if everything checks out, the price is not robbery.

Indianapolis salts the crap out of their roads. I'd go see it, but be sure to check all of the vulnerable areas really well. (Notice the rust on the front-door steps?)

An RE bus with a lift, a DT466, and an MD3060 is one of the least common spe'c's you will ever come across. If you choose to get rid of the lift and install an entrance door in the middle of the bus you have a lot of the work done for you already.

That vintage may or may not have had rear air ride as standard. All of the RE buses got rear air ride sometime in the early '00's. Since it does have quite a few other options it may have rear air ride which would be a real nice option to have.

My concerns for it would be in regards to rust. Depending on how much and/or how bad the rust might be would be the decider for me.

As for price, since the seats are already out and the bus is no longer all yellow the price is not outrageous. I would be more comfortably at $4500-$5000 but $6000 is not a bad price.

Not a bad deal
Air ride would be the deal sealer for me.
New exhaust there is a some money
The fact it met dot is good the rust can’t be big monster holes. Even on a truck plate.

i went and looked at it yesterday, and it looked pretty good all things considered. Very little rust except for on the paneling around the stairs and on the dash, but that was to be expected. Rides and drives very well, and the current owner (who uses it to haul pool chemicals) tells me there has never been any major spillage. He also said he could deliver it if need be, since i live fairly close. ill be out of town for a few days, but ill keep in contact with the guy and work something out. ill keep you all updated.
