In my opinion a partial conversion lowers the value to some extent. Its not far enough along to say "its saving me a ton of work" but in some ways I'm sure is going to handcuff you to courses of direction you may not have chosen for yourself.
in its favor a Gillig is a somewhat unique and desirable bus but on the other hand converting a more unique bus opens a few cans of worms in the since that you will inevitably hit roadblocks and have a smaller community of wisdom on how to navigate past the issue. Most parts should still be pretty standard however.
If they weren't friends of mine Id leverage the negatives for and start potentially at $3500 (depending on my own inspection of course) (if there are mechanical issues or rust issues id go under that for sure) and work to common ground from there.
