Here is the craigslist listing in Seattle if you would like to see pics!
I am selling a 1982 International Bluebird School Bus in fantastic running condition. S-1800 Model. It is partly renovated to an RV home and is ready to be finished pretty quickly as is, or it is in a great place to easily strip it further for a much more in depth renovation. This bus is very worthy of a renovation to a home. It has been very well taken care of and runs perfect. I purchased it from a guy who was a diesel mechanic and auto enthusiast. He put a lot of love into cleaning the engine and adding some unique features. It runs fantastic, starts every time, and drives like butter. I purchased it about 4 months ago with the intention of finishing it into a part time travel RV, but life and work has taken me in a different direction so I just do not have the time to put any work into it, and no time to travel. I put months into trying to find a quality bus and I really feel like I hit the jackpot with this one. If you are interested in scaling down your life and traveling and have been searching for a quality school bus worthy of making into a home, i think you will be very pleased with this one. I had an RV mechanic look at the entire thing and he had nothing but good things to say about the condition of the engine and all mechanical parts.
