FOR SALE: 2002 Thomas Freightliner FS65

Known here as the "Murder Bus" my 38' 72 Pax bus is for sale.
$3500

178,400 miles

No hidden story here -- you can search all my posts to see what was done.
All the maintenance I did was with the idea of building and keeping a nice party bus.
Pandemic took the fun out of parties in small places so...
And now I'm moving out of the country so...

It's a reliable running/driving bus to start your project with instead of one of those tragic auction stories you read here every week...
Clean title: registered/titled in Vermont as a Motor Home (one less hassle for the buyer)


This is a high-roof Thomas. Ceiling height is 6' 8" with the plywood deck removed.
ENG: Cat 3126 running excellent
Tran: 5sp o/d Allison 2000 series automatic
Axle ratio 5.13 drives 65mph no problem on my local county roads.
100 gallon fuel tank (It's full, that's worth $300 right there!)
Hydraulic brakes
Two Freightliner truck batteries now one year old.
All the tires are Michelin X in safe condition for summer driving but they are also near their age limits.

Plywood floor has been removed revealing some rust -- pix below show the 3 worst spots. Between the battery box and the drivers seat and the wheel cover.

I have 4 of the bench seats if wanted.
I have the rear heater and hoses if wanted.
Too much other stuff to list if wanted.

The Murder bus has been sold to Eric & Sara.
I don't know if they'll spend any time here researching their build plans but if they do, I know they'll appreciate all the support and info I found here along the way...
