I wouldnt mind a second bus but with me driving all over cities no way a 40 footer would happen..
as for the post that talked about the maxxforce 7 and Maxxforce DT...
the maxxforce 7 was a short-lived engine that was terrible.. it was a V-8 electronic diesel... read about the failures on schoolbusfleet.. I wont say its as bad as a VT-365 but its no prize to take home..
the Maxxforce DT was a newer name for the DT-466E with the later emission revs on it.. I think 2015 was its last year or maybe 2014...
as for this bus i thought all the mechanical DT-466's were gone by 1994 or 1995... sure this isnt a DT-466E?
Mechanical injection was being sold till 98 on a few. I checked. Its an NGD DT466 with 250 hp.
Looks like an E because it has the later style intake that's built into the valve cover. But its got mechanical injection. The later, high mount pump.
Last of the really great buses here. Its got all the goodies.
