1973 Ford B-Series Short Bus in ST. LOUIS, MO

Hi there!

Selling my 1973 Blue Bird B-500. Its a short bus with a lot of style, measuring 24 feet bumper to bumper.

Runs and drives fine! It drove from Kansas City to Springfield, MO, then from Springfield to STL with no problems!

Brakes are a little squishy, but you just need to bleed the master cylinder.

Gears shift fine through all four gears. Has high and low gearings.

Set up to be a Skoolie conversion and a lot of the hard work has already been done. We have removed all interior panels and the old insulation. We've removed the seats and coated the floors with rust proof paint. Also, started the exterior painting. The roof is a rust preventative paint and the body is an exterior oil based paint, so it'll hold up. It's an amateur job but it turned out pretty good with some touch up spots.

The bus doesn't have a title, but there is a way around that - we just never got to that part. Details here:

Other than that, I'm an open book. Ask any questions you've got.

Would make a perfect small mobile home or a small mobile business... hell even a food truck.

Open to offers!
