Thumbs up Off Grid 34 Bluebird Bus Conversion

Selmer!!

Bought in 2017
1991 Blue Bird TC2000
60,xxx miles
Cummins Inline 6-Turbo Diesel
34-foot, Front Engine
Right before me it was owned by a church that used it as a mobile classroom (run every week). Before that it was owned by a hospital as a shuttle bus.
Asking $83,000. Please see below for details. Willing to do video tours for serious inquiries.

Most of the entire build was completed in 2017. Slowly over time more of the little things were done. The main alterations to the bus itself include a roof raise of 1ft underneath the windows to raise them up. The inner ceiling is now around 7ft. The front and back windows were left low so the front and back integrity was held intact. A deck was also added to the back of the roof with the later with welds and deck wood.

what engine and transmission does this bus have?
where is the bus from originally? AZ?
where do you have it listed to see pictures etc?
do you have pictures, and or videos of the build process and all the steps that were taken?
can the bus be test driven and taken to a skoolie expert for inspection prior to purchase?
