Long term skoolie fan and super recent auction winners. My partner and I are impulsive, and all of a sudden we have two busses in Texas (We're in CA). Flying out tomorrow to pick them up and get them spruced up in prep for the journey home.
Why two busses? Well, we're just crazy enough to buy both sight unseen. Hopefully we'll know which one we want to keep mid-way back to CA
Plan is to sell the other once we have that figured out.
Both 8 window conventional dognoses
Both 74" inside height
Both from a school district hardly used and well maintained
One 1996 Ford Crown w/ 5.9L Cummins, 120k miles, & hydraulic brakes
Other is a 2001 Bluebird Int. w/ 7.3L IHC T444E, 94k miles, and air brakes
The 96 is a bit more rough on the outside, and the 01 is shiny as heck.
Any thoughts/feelings right off the bat which one we should keep? Sell?
Would love to hear opinions and advice from any and all!
Last thing.. if anyone has any recs for roof raise contractors (around the $5k range) anywhere from CA to TX, please let me know. We're 6'1" and 6'5" so thinking a 10-12" raise (below the windows, with that nice lil' up slant above the cab would be gravy!)
Thanks for reading! Happy (and so nervous) to finally be here
