We bought this bus just under 2 years ago, spending most of our time gutting the interior and prep’ing it for build out. We moved on to a different bus that had more interior room (flat nose,) otherwise we would have continued this build out. She runs and shifts without issue, passing emissions with no call outs on her way to being registered as an RV. Most window spots are covered by plywood. We wanted to use it for camping this winter and did not have time to reseal all windows in time. All windows are included and in good shape, but suggest replacing the rubber. We have had the bus covered at all times because the plywood still needs caulking around the window frames.

Mechanically, everything is good. No blow-by from the engine. She starts up quick every time. Slack adjusters on air brakes are all good. No movement along driveshaft. New 8D battery installed this week. All running lights and signals work (school flashers disabled.) ready to drive away.

Overall, this bus is in the perfect spot for someone to come in and start their build out, or raise the roof.

Thanks for the update. This was an amazing bus and if I had cash I would have got this. Hopefully the new owner realizes what a gem they have and holds onto it. Can a mod put SOLD in the thread title so someone doesn't read this listing a week from now, feeling like they found it only to be crushed that it's sold?
