Should I buy this bus?

I think it's finally time for me to buy a bus! I've been searching for buses mostly in my area (WA) because of covid, so I have limited options. I decided on a short or midsize bus 5-7 windows. I know they can be a bit pricier than a full size bus, but I want to make sure I'm still getting a good deal.

This bus is a 2006 Chevy Bluebird. $7800, 5-window with a handicap door, and seems really clean, no rust or anything. However, it does have 230K miles on it already and it's a gas engine - a Chevy 6L V8, which I've heard is a pretty good engine. The number of miles does give me pause though.

Thoughts?

Price seems at least double the norm.
