I've been lurking here and decided to register once I picked up my new bus. I spent the whole day checking out a school bus in Lampasas, Texas. It was a deal I just couldn't resist.
It's a 2003, 3800 International DT466E; the chassis has 120,000 miles on it. However, everything under the hood is practically brand new - a new engine was installed less than 10K miles ago. New radiator, tinted windows, new turbo and inter-cooler, with twin AC compressors, new batteries, new tires all around..etc. No dripping leaks whatsoever. It has placements internally for four wheelchairs with the aluminum slide tracks.
As this is my very first school bus purchase, I hope I got a great deal on it, I'd like for you tell me if I did or not. Total price out the door, including tags, title and license plates was $4,500 dollars. I am totally ecstatic about turning it into an RV...
This is a fresh bus, no damage or modifications have been done to it, yet.
So it's time for me to "break it in"...lol
The last pic above was right after I paid for it and was ready to drive it home. Excellent engine, brakes, transmission, and steering systems.
