Says it wouldn't start and doesn't have a driveshaft to the rear axle. But it still looks awesome to me!

These would make some really cool conversions. NOT for the timid.

I ran into a couple from Denmark that converted a similar rig. The did the conversion in Denmark then had it shipped to Newfanland. They traveled Canada, the US and we caught up with them in San Carlos, Sonora.

They stood out just a bit :)

If someone is looking for a BIG bus, Huston TX is retiring over a dozen MCI 45' coaches built in 2001-2003 with the desirable Series 60 engines and Allison B500 transmissions.

I want one....... :(

The B50 on the S60 is 750k miles. One of those MCI's only has 400k miles. I have seen MCI's still in service with nearly a million miles on them. My Eagle had 960k miles on it when I sold it and ran & drove great.

Parts and labor for coaches are much more expensive than for skoolies but the drive trains of these MCI's are as economically maintainable for an individual as it gets in that weight class.

I wish I had a use case for one of these monsters.

Airport Shuttle Bus

Smaller bus, interesting that it looks like they can park it in a regular parking spot with the back end overhanging onto grass. Based on the pictures, it may only have 4 wheels total.

International RE bus with T444E
 
Our local recycler in Northern Maryland has an International bus with a T444E in the REAR.

It was used by a church and has under 40k on the odometer. Engine bay looks like this is true. Did not check all nooks and crannies for rust but it looks solid.

Color is Navy blue. They ask $3000 for it but I am sure it can be had for $2500 or so.

Engine and transmission (looked like an AT545) in this bus are bone stock and the differential reverses the rotation of the rear facing engine/transmission. Upgrading to a MT643 transmission should be easy.

All the other buses they have are Thomas Safe T liners with the dreaded CAT engines and they want over $5000 for those.
