Opinions on 2001 Chevy Blue Bird Short Bus? Help!


I'm fresh to the forum and would love some advice on a bus I'm looking at. I've found a 2001 Bluebird 15 passenger bus (V8, 5.7L, gas) with 140,000 miles. Previously I had been looking into short buses with diesel motors, but came across this one and thought I'd ask around. Any advice on this one? Preferences to gas/diesel for short buses (any mileage descriptions)? Also, what is a reasonable price for something like this? Any comments are greatly appreciated--thanks in advance!

as far as cost

That is going to be the least expensive to buy parts for. Decent power. should go another 40,000 in my experience of truck engines. Lots and lots of places should be able to work on the chassis/driveline.

Thanks for the tips, William. Any ballpark parameters on how much this bus should cost?
