It has a lot of auction time left to give a "is it worth it" answer since we really don't have the most important information. It was delivered in 2002 to the school system. Being a 2002 I would have expected at least an Allison 2000 but the build info shows an Allison AT545. The engine is 190 hp and I know that these can have a 205 hp like I have. I paid just a little more than what the opening bid is here. The 190 hp is probably as much hp as that transmission can handle. Research the AT545 to better decide if that is what you want.

There is enough visible rust to give me pause.
