Nice... and welcome! Is that a California bus, too? If so, it's probably not ever seen road salt...bonus!

Thanks! Yes, San Jose. She's pretty darn in-tact, aside from a big dent on the rear. Doesn't bother me too much. I think I got a great deal on my little runt ;)

Right on! And you can't see the big dent in the rear, unless you're following behind...and then, who cares? Your fold-up rear deck will cover that anyway!

Nice bus. Looks like you'll be able to stand up with plenty of headroom, that's a plus.

Cool!

Do you have a name for her?

Any details on the engine, tranny, miles, etc.?

No name yet. I'm NOT taking any suggestions from my kids!
Soooo many miles, I don't even wanna say!
No info on the tranny... It's a 7.3 diesel engine though.

Yeah, no name suggestions from kids, especially the 8-12 year old range (I'm a school bus driver, I know kids!).

If you're taking suggestions from others, since the bus came from San Jose, I was thinking Dionne for Dionne Warwick who sang the song "Do you know the way to San Jose".

The 7.3l is a GREAT engine. There's the 7.3l Ford version and the International T444E 7.3l version. Since your bus is a van cutaway, I'm assuming it's the Ford version. If so, it will have all sorts of aftermarket items for it. You should be able to tune it to dance a jig if you want.

How many seats are out?

Amazing! Thanks for the encouraging words! Still working on those seats... I, um don't really have a lot of tools yet (don't laugh)
My youngest wants to call her Sticky. Not happening

You can have mine if you get 'em from Georgia. They are *NOT* full width seats, since mine was a wheelchair bus and needed a wide aisle for the wheelchair spot in the front. I have 2 for the right side and 4 for the left (as the bus was built.) PM me if interested.
