1978 Bluebird for sale in Austin, Texas

For sale, really amazing 40 foot school bus once featured in the Austin-American Statesman. Has been partially converted to an RV, but not currently used that way: RV converted school bus for sale

Runs well. Has RV electric hookup with circuit breaker. Comes with $1,000 worth of equipment to create a bathroom if needed, and two air conditioning units worth $600. Must be able to drive it away yourself, or hire a driver to move to your new location. Has storage bays underneath.

Would be great to convert into a food trailer.

You should really come check it out. Let me know if you want to come see it!.

Cash only, no trades. $7,000 or best offer. I am very flexible on price, very motivated to sell.

Here is the link from the newspaper: Couple create cozy home aboard bus |

159,000 miles. I am not qualified to speak to the condition of the tires or engine, but it starts up and runs well. I only move it around the driveway. It has 8 tires total, each one is doubled.

It has automatic transmission. It is an old bus, in good shape for its age.

I am very flexible on the price. I don't really know what it is worth.
