Coachwork: Thomas 4 window w/lift
Chassis: G30~Chevy cutaway
Engine: 5.7/350 Chevy Vortec
Rated Cap: Just me and my "stuff"?
Any floor or structural rust/rot underneath?
It must have sat most of its life with such low mileage? Check for leaks underneath on engine, trans., radiator, etc. due to seal degradation from sitting.
It appears good in the one pic you show, but close up thorough inspection top to bottom and front to back must be done to know if its good.

Good luck...

"The undercarriage has some surface just from sitting for a year at the school, a light sandblasting and undercarriage spray paint would set her right. The school phased out the bus for use only because the school was downsizing. The bus has been gone through by a mechanic who drove it 40 mins and parked on ours in May. The muffler will need some tlc. All in all she is in good condition and would love to be put to use. A classic and beautiful body design. I havnt jumped her to start but she was running in May."

Now it comes out...
