Buying Advice

Hi there! I’ve been looking into buying a skoolie/coach conversion for a while and stumbled upon this recently (link below) I wanted to get your guys thoughts on the engine/trans for the price and generally your sense of if it’s a good deal. Fell in love with the interior myself but don’t know much beyond that! Let me know ASAP please!

If you've got the mindset and patience to maintain a "classic" then it's a cool bus. It should have a DD 6-71 which is a well known engine used in everything from buses to airplanes to boats to tanks and has a reputation of being reliable. It's a steep price compared to what most of us spent on a newer/more modern bus, but if it's what you're into and you're mechanically inclined enough to deal with with it then it looks pretty cool!
Keep up with us and our build!

That is a good price for that beast! I am contemplating something similar.
