Recently converted and painted rear engine school bus with DT466E (7.6 liter) in line 6 cylinder diesel engine with wet-sleeve design. Known for achieving exceptionally long life of over 800,000 miles without repairs. Bus has 5-speed MD3060 Allison push button automatic transmission, two driver comfort fans, air ride rear suspension, air ride adjustable seat, air operated front door, air brakes, convex safety mirrors on both front corners, heated mirrors, 4 heater cores (driver, front, midship and rear with heaters booster pump control on dashboard). The bus got two axle alignment in early 2017, new Hankook tires, used polished aluminum wheels and new chrome wheel trim, with Crossfire dual tire pressure equalizers installed to extend tire life by 20% and make tire pressure maintenance easier. The inside rear of this bus has full size bed platform. There are plywood shelves in the front, which are easy to remove as well as a retail store service counter and midship divider wall about 2/3rds back in the bus behind service counter. This bus has averaged between 8.3 and 11.6 mpg for the 3 to 4 thousand miles I have driven it. The steering seems pretty tight and all the grease points have been greased with #2 red polymeric grease from AMSOIL two times since early 2017. All the filters are new, top of the line Donaldson filters. The engine and transmission are upgraded to AMSOIL oils. The coolant has been checked with test strips and is good for continued use. This bus has lots of white reflective pinstriping and looks awesome at night when lights shine on it. There is a magnetic closure screen door in the front entry door way. The bus has been undercoated almost 100% with AMSOIL Heavy Duty Metal Protector, which has a reputation for being extremely effective and lasting more than 6 years typically. The ceiling height is 77 inches from the floor making it easy for a 6 foot tall person to stand up in this bus. This bus has plenty of power to pull a trailer or vehicle and has a new custom built class 5 heavy duty, 14-16k pound receiver hitch with 2.5 inch receiver box and tri-ball receiver. This bus weighs about 23,000 lbs with the contents it currently has in it, and has a GVWR of 36,220 pounds including any trailer and load weight. As a motorhome or private coach in most states a CDL is not required. The length of bus is about 38 feet and the wheel base is 21 feet, making it fairly easy to turn once you get use to it. The tail swing is always my biggest concern when maneuvering this bus as well as the front right mirror swing clearance when making tight area left turns. I have just learned to slow down and pay really close attention to what is going on around me. I refer to the bus as my FULL SIZE mini van... lol, but I drove a semi truck for 7 years cross country. When driving this bus, take up all the available space when turning and learn to watch the path of the rear tires to keep the sidewalls off the curbs. The reason I am selling this bus is to go back to business school to learn new skills. I really like this bus. It does need the intermittent dash gauge cluster repaired or replaced. The dash gauges do not work more than they work, a common problem on older International trucks and buses.
