I've been looking at/for a bus like this for quite a while, now. Wife and I settled on looking for a 5-6 window handicap chevy gasser. Anyone looking at auction sites have probably seen a ton of these recently in New Jersey. We live 2000 miles away, but still very tempted by these because they're low milage and almost exactly what we've been looking for. (I've even seen a couple I recognized from these auctions pop up on craigslist 1500 miles closer and $3500 pricier.)
We may have gotten to the point of bidding on one so we had an inspection done today, and while they couldn't test drive it, this is what they said about it with some pictures they included. Would any of these be deal breakers for y'all?
They also said, "Vehicle has some minor mechanical issue, might need some suspension work right away bar bushing missing
2) Small leak in oil pan possible.
3) Said all the fluids are dirty (oil, break, power steering)
4) Pulley noise and exhaust leak.
5) Transmission and drivetrain: seeping.
6) Brake Rotors: rusted.
