Not that I'm looking but if I was I'd be checking this one out further for more details.
Activity bus so no janky school bus wiring to deal with, high roof so raise not reguired. AC, Rear engine shorty 11 window so approx 32'-33' long and body looks decent. And reasonable asking price.
Somebody might be getting a nice conversion here.

I highly doubt the mileage is accurate.

Likely not but always possible. I did a little research and based on the photos was able to determine that the bus possibly came from the West Bolivar High school football team not far from its current location so could be low miles but maybe high hours idling to run those A/C units. What's the rust factor on a Mississippi bus?

Many claim some are rust free because some of those states don't use salt on the roads. But salt sea air is also very corrosive over time. Plus Miss., and La.,Ala, Tex have all seen flooding of salt water, so there's that to think about.

Thanks Marc
That’s what I was thinking, proximity to Coast environment. Forgot about all the flooding, now I remember seeing aerial pics of huge yards of flooded trucks and buses. All the more reason to see in person if you can.
