2001 Freightliner 3126 $3195

Eight window, Cat 3126, 5 speed manual trans (Eaton-Fuller?), 203,347 miles.
Bought early spring, started and drove home (32miles), and had filters and fluids serviced. Have decided to concentrate on the ‘98 T444e since I can’t really afford two conversions.
Price reduced $2,875

I prefer it to the other but someone else likes the ceiling in the other.
On a side note, I charged the batts today and this one fired right up. Made sure the boss was listening to it run and told her mine sounded better than hers, lol.

You mentioned windows, But how long is it in feet? This might be suitable for my truck build.

Damn I'd love a 3126 with a manual transmission. 8 window is the popular size everyone goes for too. Why so cheap?

Can’t seem to give them away around here. Received dozens of offers, the max offer being $2K. ��*♂️
Was offered a whopping $400 for the 10window I had started converting, but it did have some kind of issue.

Dang I wish I lived in your area you're still in the pricing from like 10 years ago.
If I had an 8 window with a manual sitting here in my yard I'd be asking at least 10 grand if its not a rust bucket.
Maybe that's why so many Floridians are moving up your way- cheap prices.

It’s definitely different, when something is hot it’s hot but right now, here, it’s big van time.

prices on busses are coming back down from the highs..theres a lot of partially finished conversions for sale on various social media platforms and they are sitting.. alot of times getting re-posted with lower prices.. a ton of people got in thinking it was easy and cheap.. then when they realize how much work it is to convert a bus, maintain it, and even drive it.. they doint drive like luxury RV's they are still bouncey noisy school busses.. im starting to see good deals on busses again.. scrap metal prices are coming down too
