Going look at a bus
Iím going look at a 2004 International 6 window. As a first time buyer I just wanted to make sure I get all of my information before I look. Description says 7.3L, Allison 2000, runs and drives great, tires are in great shape. 211K miles
How do I figure out if itís pre-emissions? Is that a deal breaker?
I know I need to get under there and look for rust, itís a TX bus.
Iím assuming I need to drive it around and watch temperature/make sure gauges work. See how fast it actually goes, Iím assuming most are around 55-60mph.
Make sure thereís no obvious leaks/drips after driving. Ask for service records.
Also if you are going look out of state at a bus and decide to buy it, how does insurance and temp tag work? I use progressive for my regular auto, but Iím assuming I will have to call and get commercial insurance for personal use liability until I get converted to RV title (or go thru VT)? Iím in Louisiana.
