This bus has lot against it without even looking at it.

Inquiring minds...
The batteries look relatively new delco batteries they had charge as the end of January. Tires I got to date yet allready planning replacing rears,fronts are pretty fresh. In Indiana around here they dont put busses out of the sun to save the tires. The bus was hit in late dec and was a route bus still inspected by state through the year. It has few things against it,emissions being one and a fix was factored into the buy. Also it being 8 yrs old with 7xxxx miles played a part in how long it should last me. I have no problem with a wrecked car this is how I generally buy them to get what I want at a price I can swing without putting me in a bind.

That Webasto heater is worth half of what you paid for the bus.

Looks to be in good shape,got the manual for it in the but havent fired it. Sucks think the high flow pump bad as they had it unplugged. Was going to bench test it. With all the heaters in it without the webasto it will run you out.
