2001 blue bird 3126/md3060 combo

Been looking for DT466/2000 bus for a while now. Found a RE blue bird with cat3126/ md3060 with under 100k miles and Skoolie conversion started. What would be acceptable price and thoughts on this drivetrain??

That's a decent motor that is well liked by people on this forum.

As far as price it heavily depends on location, type of seller, tires, other features (headroom, chassis length, understorage, AC).

I wouldn't take the mileage as gospel. That era of Bluebird had very crappy VDO gauges that frequently broke (like mine ).

The only motor that would be better would be the 8.3 Cummins ISC.
