4 Sale - 2006 30 ft Thomas FS65 / Whl Chr Lift-Rear Side / Mercedes MBE900 Diesel / Allison 2500 Auto Trans

Things I know:
- 2006 Mercedes MBE 900 Diesel

- Dog Nose - Thomas built body / Freightliner Chassis
- 30 feet in length, Handicap w/ chairlift at rear side
- 102,ooo mls +/-
- Air breaks and Air Ride Suspension
- Runs the Freeway at 67-70 mph, then governor kicks in, 60 gal tank – it is currently full
- Original factory Cruse Control working
- Bonus Feature - most of the bus, inside and out are Screwed Not Rivet Fasteners
- 21ft behind driver seat, no wheel humps (flat run), two ceiling hatches,
- Tinted window with black frame coating, 8 windows deep with 4 emergency windows
- From Parma, OH school district (told it was a first student "backup bus" for the district, for past few yrs)
- Was OH State Highway Road Certified for service year 2020-2021
- Should be able to camp at most National Parks, as I could see
- Ceiling is at 6’ 1”

Work that has been done:
- Paperwork for deemed Motorhome via Vermont has been approved and processed, Email confirmation
- Painted Tan to cover the “Ticket me Bus Yellow”, other updates can easy remove to start fresh
- Bus side stop sign and arm removed
- Two rows of seats remain, with drivers seat – seating for 9 / all passage seats are child restraint
- Started labeling as disconnecting wiring for unnecessary bus lights/equipment
- Shut off gate values to rear and front floor heaters. Did not close off lines as may yet have use
- removed and reset several inside screws for ease of removal testing – most without issue

Mechanical/Auto Needs:
- Tires have good tread, not certain about date coding.
- Light rust along rear bumper line and each bottom of doors
- Had spoken w/ assigned mechanic and last oil change at 97,151-oil,filter,greased and fluids topped
3 newer batteries, started right up w/out jump, after full summer of parking

It drives and handles great with 21 feet of flat floor plain, due to wheelchair design. Originally purchased for Skoolie Motorhome and Mobile Office/client meeting area. Selling due to new long term family health issues, life balance (family 1st) and I need to keep project lists to a reasonable number. This is an AWESOME bus, but would not get to it in a timely manner and I know you will complete it sooner then I.
VIN for your reference: VIN 4UZAAXDG37CX70800

Priced to sell at $4,490, PM if interest

I will work on additional photos if needed
