1990 DT360 with 545
Hi folks, I have found a 1990 Bluebird shortbus with NO rust, 230,000 miles. It's from a school fleet then to YMCA for the duration of its work life. The size/body is perfec for me. I do plan on an engine survey!
My biggest concerns are #1. What mileage can I realistically expect in FL and NC Mountains. #2. Can it even function in the Smokies?? Some posts state that many busses perform poorly in the mtns but the don't state what lenght the bus is. Does a Shortie do better in the mountains?
I know the 545 doesn't have a lock-up function but is that really a deal breaker?
I would really appreciate some knowledgeable assistance here. Thanks!
