FS: 2004 Gillig 35' in NH $5k

Hey out there in the internet...LIfe has taken a few turns recently and I have decided I won't have the time to proceed with my conversion so I'm offering up my 2004 Gillig Phantom 35' to someone who has the time and vision to bring it to completion. Bus has air ride, air driver's seat (Recaro) Cummins ISL engine and Voith trans, yes I know, some are scared of the Voith but it works perfectly and has low miles (under 200k). 2 new batteries last fall, and wired with trickle chargers to keep it ready to roll without issues. I have , included with sale'all service records from day 1 as well as the Gillig wiring, body, engine and operators manuals, it's a huge pile of literature. Throwing in some nice cabinet doors, an RV gas range, vent hood, microwave, macerating toilet, and anything else i can think of LOL! Clear title in hand, I'll post up pics when it stops raining.
Runs down the road 60+ mph no problem and I was able to get a paper temp plate to transport it when I bought it, stripped to the skin on the inside and all excess wiring for the safety switches etc. has been cleanly removed, a clean slate ready to be built to you liking, asking $5000, PM with any questions.

Hi. Nice bus. Its a little early for me, but if you still have it in a year...

Two Quick questions that would also benefit others:

1. Is this a 96" or 102" wide coach, and

2. The Phantom is listed as being 77" (6'5") in the center. The side measurement is never listed, as the ductwork is always in place and you can't really tell. Could you please let us know the floor to (lowest rib point) on yours at the center and along the sides? I am assuming it doesn't change from the front to the rear bench, but if it tapers that would be great to know, too.


Thanks so much. Still camped out (for another year now the way things are going...) in sunny Western Australia.

addressing questions..

Tom, I don't think I'll have it in a year but you never know, life has a way of being surprising and the "place I'm at" now I would have never guessed a year ago...I'll put a tape measure to it this AM and post up the dimensions for you and others, on an unrelated note Australia is, and has always been, someplace I hope to see some day, Scott

dimensions

As requested the interior dimensions are as follows....side to side at floor, mid point, and at the radius where the roof meets the sidewall is a consistent 90.5" at the front, center, and rear. Headroom at the front, center, and rear is also a consistent 79" so it's straight and square, no taper anywhere.
Cadillackid, thanks for the input, you're obviously a very knowledgeable source and you confirm what I thought when this bus became available to me and I was researching them. I had hopes of running it all over in the coming years but a reorganization of priorities is underway so...maybe another one someday, who knows. Scott
