I'm brand new to Skoolies
And wondered about your opinions on this bus:
This is a 1989 Ford B-600, 24' Ward body, 54 passenger, retired school bus. Powered by a 6 cylinder diesel, automatic tranny, power steering, new 8D battery, really good Goodyears on all corners, brakes are excellent, all seats removed save one and the driver, good exhaust, no rust, rear heat, all windows intact and working, solid body and frame.
This cruiser is ready for a camper conversion or set up as a tailgaters dream! Smoke the windows and you've got a rolling PARTY! With the sale, I will throw in a brand new motorhome, high security, entry door and frame that will easily replace that old, noisey, bi-fold door up front. It has keys for the lock, screen door and a full window (DOT compliance) and costs $1800 new! It is high quality and heavy.
$2700 as is.
Okay, to answer the obvious questions. What does it need? The fuel in the tank is old and burns more like oil than diesel, so the tank needs to be drained and fresh fuel added. It needs a normal service, i.e. filters, oil, antifreeze flush. It needs either a fuseable link at the starter or a solenoid. You can start it, but not with the key. You can drive it anywhere the way it sits or for a sale price of $3000, I'll take care of the items listed above.
