$10,000 obo

~ The interior floor is welded, sealed metal, to meet health department standard.

~ There is also water hookup modifications, again to meet health department requirements.

~ The refrigerators have hardly been used and can be powered by industrial lithium battery, or plugged into external power source.

~ The only thing that I can see needing some replacement (or new rubber sealing around its edges) would be the ceiling emergency hatch.

~ The back door is also welded shut, as are windows on the drivers side.

The A/c would need replacing as well (I have tried it a couple of times and just couldn't get it to function).

The passenger side opens with school bus doors, handicap access door, and a large concession window with removable shelf -- it feels very open to the outside.

She is in great shape for her age and mileage, however I do believe she will need a rebuilt transmission in a few years (5 or so). So, for the rebuilders and fixer-upper mechanics, here's lookin at you ;)
Most of the interior is bare bones, so easier to work with, if you're wanting to modify further.

A little backstory:

I bought this bus this way, already modified for a woman whose intention was to vend organic electrolyte drinks at her son's basketball tournaments.
I don't know what happened to her endeavour (or if her son graduated school), but thinking I would turn my microbakery business into a rolling sort of snack machine, (which I still think would have been so amazinggg!) I purchased it! However, life is leading me in a different direction, and I am happily moving abroad! So, maybe someone here can make their dream come true with this gal. If it was reasonable for me to keep her, I would. It's really such a joy to have the bus. I'm hoping she'll have a good, long life with another family!

Vehicle is located in Los Angeles, in the Sunland-Tujunga area.
