So, it has a worn out motor, blown transmission, does not drive and the pictures you posted are not of the bus you are trying to sell. What is the status of the registration? How new are the tires? What transmission is in it and what Bluebird model is it? Front engine or rear ? Is it an all American? TC 2000? TC 1000? So many unanswered questions.

the motor will run without the tranny working.
with the motor running and the type of tranny its mated to it might be valuable to someone with the tranny wasted.
a 300g motor with a bad tranny isnt worth the asking price but if the seller will answer questions and has the knowledge to do the leg and arm work to part it out then he might get closer to his asking price after taking the body to salvage.
i am interested in 360 parts as well as what tranny you have with your 360.
please advise us.
5000$ for a non moving bus?
