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.

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:

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.

Bunch of RTD buses about to hit the auction block this Wednesday here in Denver.

Don't quote me, but these Orion V's tend to sell in the $1500-$2500 price range.

Word of caution, don't buy these sight unseen. Some are okay, some are really rough, and mileage doesn't seem to be the indicator of condition. I would definitely go to the Auction's physical site, kick the tires, see if you can hear them run, etc.

10.8 liters HAS to have great fuel mileage, lol. I don't know what their top speed/cruising RPMs look like, but I see them on the highway all the time. They'll do at least 55, probably governed around 62mph, but they're not the planetary-driven buses like the mall rides use (max out around 40mph).

If you give this a shot, good luck to you!

Just found out that the price was lowered on the bus that I mentioned earlier. The asking price is now $2000. I found the link to it on craigslist.

Pretty pricey for what it is. And its got the Cat 3208.
For the asking price, I'd think the tires shoudn't need to be replaced.
