For sale, 1986 Thomas Saf-T-Liner School Bus, 40' rear engine diesel.. Retired in 2015 from the Arlington (WA) School District.
$2500 OBO. I will consider all reasonable cash offers. No trades. I will also take PayPal. Cash in hand offers talk the loudest.
286K miles, fair condition (see pictures). Starts/Drives/Stops.
Would make an awesome starting platform for a Skoolie, Custom RV, Tiny House on Wheels, or Bugout Vehicle! I've seen these turned into Food Trucks, Rolling Businesses, your imagination is the limit!
The bus is located near Marysville in Washington State. Local pickup only.
Bus is sold as-is, no warranty.
Tabs expired August 2017. Tab renewal (at my home address in the RTA taxing district) is $153.75
Clean title in hand.
I strongly encourage you look at the bus before making an offer.
I am available most weekends if you want to meet to inspect the bus (currently parked near Marysville in Washington State). However, it is not insured and the tabs are expired, so a test drive isn't possible. I live about an hour from where the bus is parked and do not get home from work until too late to show it weekday evenings.
I drove this bus from Arlington WA to Everett WA, then drove it from Everett to Marysville WA (where it sits right now) with no issues. It has not been driven since September 2015, but I have started it and ran it for 30 minutes at least once every month. It starts every time with no problem.
I started stripping the inside for a Skoolie conversion, and all of the seats are removed except the very last row (see pictures).
•CAT3208 diesel rear engine. Engine Serial Number 02Z23825
•Allison Automatic model MT643
•Transmission Fluid and Filters were changed at 272,541 miles
•Huge amount of inside space. Once finished, it should net over 200 square feet of living area.
•Large luggage bays under the floor, lots of space for water tanks, waste tanks, solar power battery banks, anything you can imagine.
•I have some inspection and maintenance work orders that were in the bus.
•The bus will not start from just the ignition key. It has to be started from a switch in the engine bay while the ignition key is in the on position.
•The emergency exit open door alarm goes on and stays on as long as the bus is running. Maybe be an easy fix, maybe just pull the alarm fuse. This started when I pulled out the seat next to the emergency exit door.
•Interior and exterior minor rust.
•Soft spots in the subfloor.
