Located in Salt Lake City UT metro area. Asking $4800.
Notes: I haven't been able to make the high idle work -- it wouldn't surprise me if the engine computer disables high idle when temperatures are warm as they are now. The locks on the emergency exits operate from the interior only. The main door has a key cylinder on the outside but the cover over the keyway is jammed. Based on comparison to my other bus with 5.38 axle ratio which reaches 72 MPH, I estimate this one will probably reach mid to high 70's. I ran out of speed limit and road so couldn't push it to its max.
I'm interested! This one pretty much checks all my boxes.
What's the backstory? Did you buy this to flip it inside the community? Selling for a friend? Do you have the title and is it in your name? Where'd you buy it, or who sold it? Straight out of service? Do you have the service documentation?
Also, could I ask for date codes on the steer tires? I can see that it'll need 4 drive tires right off the bat.
By the way: odometer shows 277k. I knew I had to forget something in the first post.
I have a habit of fixing things. I picked up this bus from a local school district last summer and this spring repaired the engine: complete set of new head bolts, head gasket, and one push rod. I was stunned when I discovered the ISC engine has 26 head bolts. Holy cow! But I digress. Anyway, it starts quick and runs nicely. I do have the title but haven't transferred it to my name since I had no intent to register it. (I'm not sure whether Utah will charge me sales tax and registration fees in connection with issuing a new title.)
I submitted a request this morning for the service information from the district's transportation department. I'd never talked to this department before; the bus was sold through the surplus property department which gave me only the key and the title.
Didn't get a call back this afternoon, but I did discover that I actually know the person I spoke with, so I'm optimistic it'll work out.
It took 'em a couple days, but I have received a copy of the maintenance log for this bus.
Anybody want to PM an offer? I'm afraid that if I keep this bus any longer I'm liable to do a roof raise on this one too, but I really need to get paint on my other bus before starting something like that! I might be persuaded to pull out seats or the interior sheet metal though.
