Is this worth it?

It's a Ford B700 36 Passenger School Bus with no engine or transmission. How much do you think that will cost? And could I put in a gas engine instead of diesel? Thanks!

My first bus was a 40' 1985 Thomas CE on a Ford chassis with a Ford gas engine and 545. It ran great, had only 80k miles on it, and was rust free.
It was free, all I had to do was go get it. That was 2002-ish.
I bet there are still a few freebies out there though.

I've seen a few freebies, all of them they would have had to pay me large to get them off the property.That's why they were being offered for free, owner was looking for someone else to remove his chit.

I just gave an old motorhome away for free. I just wanted rid of it and was thankful to see it go!!
