Beautiful, high-end conversion for sale in Colorado. Must sell for reasons having nothing to do with bus. Mostly completed with some minor work remaining. Weighes in at 20,220 lbs loaded. (Well under the 26,000 lb mark for required CDL in Colorado)
Bus is a 1995 International, 71-passenger, Bluebird conventional. Has DT408 diesel - nice engine - runs great! Good brakes. She crossed several passes on her way through Colorado with no trouble, towing a car. Nice clean body - no rust. Was in service in Illinois school, and driven here (1200 miles) following purchase.
