Looking for some leads on buses for sale, TN/KY

Hello!

Just checking in. I flew down to Florida this past week to buy a bus and it fell through due to hidden engine issues So... back on the search. We really want something with little to no rust and, being from Michigan, this is rather tough. I am headed to Tennessee and Kentucky from Monday to Thursday next week to do some concerts. If anyone knows of any school districts off-loading some buses or some for sale, I would appreciate any leads. I will be spending my off-time looking for a bus. We would really like a flat-front, preferably Bluebird. Cummins 5.9 or 8.3 preferred. FE or RE doesn't matter to us. 28-35 foot is preferred too!

Thanks!

Jeremy

Gilligs are sweet, but I would prefer something that isn't that old... unless it was a crown

EDIT: I do love that bus though... you got me thinking

Re: Looking for some leads on buses for sale, TN/KY

when in TN just call the local bus companies, MOST schools don't run their own buses or drivers, so stuff is for sale all the time

what part of TN?

I will for sure be in the Nashville area. I'd be more than happy to drive down to Chattanooga as I have friends there. Really I would drive more or less anywhere in the state to find the right bus!

Hi Mary. I called the phone number you gave me but it has been disconnected. Do you know if it was a conventional style bus or a flat nose? Thanks for the tip!

White, it is a snub nose. I got the number from the front of the building, have to go to Memphis tomorrow for a couple of days and will get you a good number when I get back. It is pretty long, guessing it is 35 to 40 feet. Will also try to get you some pictures.

Re: Looking for some leads on buses for sale, TN/KY

Well… I am on my way home to Michigan now. My four-day search for a bus in Tennessee and Kentucky was unsuccessful. Had a few leads but nothing. We also lost out on a really nice low mile bus in an auction. I will post a comprehensive list of what we're looking for when I get to a computer. We are looking for a 28 to 35 foot flat nose bus. Preferably a bluebird or Thomas. The search continues… I will be in Virginia West Virginia and Pennsylvania next week for some concerts and will be looking there. The only thing is… I would really like to get a bus from the state that doesn't salt The road so much. We have been searching for a year and a half... I feel like we are getting close and the search has intensified in the last two months. The search continues…

Mary… I am still happy to hear about The bus in western Tennessee. If you could snap a picture or two that would be awesome. We are written willing to fly or drive for the right bus!
