FOR SALE: 2010 International 3200 - Less Than 25k Miles!

Hey all,
I am helping my dad sell a 2010 International 3200 that he purchased for a business opportunity that fell through due to Covid. He doesn't have space for it and I am already converting a van into a camper which is about half done. Here are the details:
  • 2010 International Model 3200
  • Less than 25,000 miles (We think it has less than 23,000 miles but the bus is in storage so I couldn't go check)
  • MaxxForce 7.6L Diesel Engine
  • 5 Speed Allison Transmission
  • Air Brakes
  • Air Suspension
  • Wheelchair Ramp
  • Front Bike Rack
  • Goodyear Tires in Great Shape
  • Working AC and Heat in Front and Back
  • Located in Athens GA

This bus is in fantastic shape and is ready to be converted to a really cool camper. It is bright red so we affectionally call it Clifford! We are asking $20,000. Please let me know if you have any questions or are interested in taking a look.

Hey Guys, not getting much action on this post so if you have any input on a way I could get this bus sold then any help would be very beneficial. Is the price too high? Is there any information I can add to the post to generate some traction? Any and all comments are appreciated.

The maxxforce is going to scare off many folks. I wouldn't touch one. GLWS, though man.

Has your dad had any work done on the engine, or was anything done recently or prior to him taking ownership?

Since it's still setup as a bus (seats intact, etc) might be worth more to try selling it as such, maybe a private school or college or civic organization, anyone who still needs passenger transportation in spite of COVID. Actually. With the wheelchair lift maybe a nursing home could use it, not sure if there's any other special requirements they look for in senior transportation. In my community the nursing homes have this type of bus then also the county sponsors a bus service so seniors who still live at home aren't homebound. I'm just worried the price and style is going to be a very hard sell in this community.

Thank you for the response. When you say you wouldn't touch one, is that for any price at any mileage or for the price listed? I am not that familiar with these engines but have read some things about the MF engines. Seems to me that the miles are so low that engine issues wouldn't be of a huge concern at this point.

Nothing has been done to the engine and it runs great. No smoke or issues related to the engine. The previous owner used it as a shuttle for taking his grandkids places in town so that is why the miles are so low.

Thanks for the thoughts. I will look into that and see if that is a possible selling route. When you say that the style of the bus is a hard sell here is that because of the many windows or some other reason?

That engine isn't a very good one especially for an owner/operator. They're notoriously falure-prone and the ones that do last cost many thousands in maintenance and repairs. They're essentially THE worst emmissions era medium duty diesel engines of the major manufacturers.
I wouldn't touch one at any price/mileage. If it were free and running I'd sell it, but that's as far as i'd want to take ownership of a maxxforce.
Sorry, man.

I do think on FB marketplace you'd get the most $ with the least amount of scrutiny. FB skoolie folks will buy that era a lot more than folks on here.

No worries and thanks for the honesty. I will give it a shot on FB. Not sure if you have an idea about pricing or not since you wouldn't touch one but do you think a $20k asking price reasonable or way out of bounds?

On newer lower miles stuff like that its sort of a crap shoot. On FB someone may be more likely to be dazzled by the newness and low miles.

For price I'd have to look at similar rigs and compare. I don't usually look at buses newer than about 2006.

The 'hard sell' was only in reference to the nature of this forum which is almost exclusively yellow school bus conversions. The community isn't opposed to other types of conversions but this usually isn't the first stop for someone who's not already looking at a school bus conversion first even if they do end up with something else. (Raises hand). There's also a little bit of frugality (read cheap) within the community which often discourages any moderately priced bus purchase so while that's not to say yours is not appropriately priced but there's just too many dirt cheap buses at auction for anyone to seriously look at yours. Not trying to discourage, just being honest about the chances of finding a buyer here... But who knows! That's why I tried to offer realistic alternatives and not just shoot it down.
