Note: This is not my bus, but there's too much information for this to fit well in the "non affiliated" bus sales thread.
Our local small school district here near Flagstaff, AZ is selling 3 buses which they're no longer using. They asked for my help in evaluating them and I gladly volunteered to do so. Two of the buses are not running and are either parts or scrap buses. But one is a full-sized Blue Bird activity bus which started right up after I loaned it some batteries and found the unmarked battery cutoff circuit.
I made a video of the buses, showing all three but focusing on the Blue Bird. It shows the bus running and driving. The 2000 Blue Bird has storage bays, a Cummins 24 Valve 5.9L diesel engine, an Allison World Series transmission (so, not an AT545), no rust at all, and seems to be in good overall condition. It's got a bit under 174K miles on the odometer.
Here's a link to the video: https://youtu.be/zmBgI1jDOHc
The school district is obligated to sell these through a public bid submission offering, with bids submitted by mail or in person. They listed the sale in the local Williams AZ newspaper. Bids must be submitted by July 14, after which they'll be opened and the sale will be awarded to the highest bidder.
While I'm not affiliated with this sale or these buses, I do live nearby and am happy to support our local school and the buyer. If someone from Skoolie.net buys the BB, I will be available to jump start (if needed) and help get them on the road.
The address for the bids is: Maine Consolidated School District, 10 North Spring Valley Road, Parks, Arizona, 86018
