Another find, input if you would
Here is another one I found. A little bit of a haul. and I assume it's a older gentlemen who isn't tech savy, he said he didn't have any pictures to send. Was a bit rude haha.

What do you guys think on this one? Has everything I need included but a bathroom. And I don't mind finishing

heres a few pics, the ones the guy posted are really bad angles.

i would see if there is a local if its a trip for you. the guy made it a big point that it has no rust, and it has low mileage so it is definitely a good start.

If anyone is local I will pay you $10 to go check it out for me

Great looking platform. Most of the dirty work has been done. Rust Free wow.

It looks like a pretty good platform in pretty good condition.

I don't know of any FEMA bus fleets in OR. The GSA has quite a fleet of buses used by the Job Corps centers in OR. Those buses get quite a workout every weekend shuttling kids from the centers to and from the I-5 corridor. The rest of the time those buses those buses don't get used very much.

Since they generally only put on 200-300 miles a week the mileage sounds about right for a bus of that age.

I would say that if everything the seller says is true then that would be a pretty good purchase.

4.78 gear ratio

Trans will affect speed, overdrive ratio or direct 1 to 1? With 22.5 tires 4.78 seems good, but my 5.9 with OD 2000 Allison and 5.86 runs out about 73 (no headwind, no hill).
