Looking at buying a 2001 Ford International

Hey everyone!

I'm looking at buying a bus and I found a Ford 2001 International with 130,000 miles on it for 2,500$. I haven't looked at this bus in person yet but the one problem with the bus I already know is that there is a broken brake line. It looks like they have taken care of the bus otherwise and seems to be a good deal. Would the brake line be something I could fix in their driveway and drive it off or would I need a tow and take it to a shop to get it fixed?

Any help is appreciated! Have a great day!

Could not tell you Not enough info air brake? hydraulic brake? is it lucas girling?if it is lucas/girling I would run away from it even at $25.00 as it will eat you alive in repairs over time.
Its hard to be wrong when you live in Wright City!
There is no mechanical problem that cannot be overcome by a skillfully applied combination of brute force and ignorance!
