Looking for bus near South Dakota
I think I finally have my wife convinced that building a schoolie is a good idea so now I can find a bus! I haven't found anything locally that would meet my requirements so I thought I'd ask the community. I'm looking for a conventional 60 to 66 ish passenger (10 or 11 row). For drivetrain I would like a dt466 mechanical injection with a manual overdrive transmission or a dt466e with a-2000 or MD 3060. I'd like to stay pre 2004 or 05? to avoid EGR.
I did find a 99 Thomas 65 pass with dt466e, 7 speed manual and 160,000 miles in Colorado. May be priced a little high at 7500? I might be able to negotiate down a little. What do you think?
