I bought this and another bus with the intention of selling 2 buses and using the money to convert a third. I didn't win the 3rd bus - it sold for $4500 and was deemed by the mechanics to be in the worst shape of all 3 for sale. Tires on that bus were showing a lot of wear and the clutch was in question. Brakes were due for service as well.
Now I've got two to sell unless this '66 goes for enough to convert the '67. I have a budget including a 10% overage of $6000 for my conversion all written up so help me put another schoolie on the road and buy this one for 6K!
This is a 1966. It is freaking awesome. Really nice. Sides are straight and no rust whatsoever. I don't think it ever saw salt. I will photograph anything you want to see on it and take cell phone video of it out on the road if needed.
Located in Jackson WY
Runs and drivers awesome. Retrofitted with a turbo pushing low boost for a little extra on the mountain passes. Top speed is about 60mph. Cummings 220 should get about 10-11 mpg @ 55mph. Said to have about 10K-15K on a new clutch assembly AND pressure plate. Cost for this service was $5500 alone!
Serviced by the same mechanics since new.
Owned by the same company since new.
Tires are very nice in rear, decent in front.
Everything works - The motor has been ether trained for cold starts. Its cold here in the Grand Tetons most of the time.
Stored 6+ months each year with coolant drained and refilled each spring to prevent seepage through the heads.
I have plates and insurance on this bus and will drive it to your location for an agreed upon amount.
