I've seen two for sale recently. One in Tulsa (close to home) for $30k, and it's a wreck. The other in California for $75000 ... a full rebuild.

They are not really suitable for Skoolie conversions without significant engineering changes.

They are, by the way, the buses I rode daily as a child.

I'm thinking the old greyhounds were Detroit diesel 8V-71 and Allison of course.
