Non-affiliated buses for sale - thread
 
I thought I'd borrow an idea from a car forum and start a thread for non-affiliated bus listings. Anything's fair game as long as it's a 3rd party bus for sale (dealer or private seller). So whatever you find on CL, Govdeals, ebay, whatever, feel free to post it here!

I'll start with one I found on Govdeals. Not much information on the drivetrain or condition but I haven't seen too many RE buses with that side wheelchair door in the middle like that.

1990 Thomas pusher with a Cat 3208, relisted but the first time on the block bids were up to almost $4,000 :nonono:

Cheapest Safetliner C2 I've seen yet. Not sure how ideal they would be for a skoolie platform though

2001 Freightliner Thomas medium length bus. This might make a good toy hauler conversion with the wheelchair door in the back. No idea if the MB 906 engine is good or not.

Some agency in Maryland has a bunch of these for sale. 30 passenger International shuttle buses with the DT466. They're all apparently listed as non-running but I'd be curious to see what that means. There isn't many details on the overal condition of each bus.

This would be a nice base for a conversion but $15K is way too much for a '95 with coolant leaks and other issues :blink:

Seriously, I can't figure out why they would think that is a good price.

To continue with the trend of overpriced prison buses, here's a real gem. 2006 Bluebird AA RE with the Cat C7. "Minor cosmetic damage" "164,00 miles"

So what is the price? $70,000. That's right. SEVENTY THOUSAND!! :facepalm: :nonono:

Looks like it already has a lot of the things necessary for an RV conversion and the 7.3 is a defenite plus. The condition doesn't exactly scream reassuring though.

Some of you need to realize what buses cost new.

Anything that can still be run as a bus to make money is still worth good money.

Just for reference, Dog nose full size chassis buses start at $85,000 new for a basic bus with no nice options.

Price of a flat nose Am Tran 300 with a DT466 at 300hp, retarder, Alison 3000 series trans, ect, and your at $145,000.

All the buses we buy here for our conversions are basically wore out junk, sold at scrap metal prices.
