Re: Newbie -> Questions about a Bus
You don't say where you are located. I happen to know where a bus is located of a similar vintage and of the same size locally. It has a DT360, 5 speed manual trans, 2 speed rear, and some maintenance records to go with it. It's no longer in service, but the owner says it still has a current inspection sticker. He's asking $800....
I was thinking of buying it and just bringing it right to the scrap yard. With scrap at nearly $200 per ton I should be able to get $1400 for it at least. I'd rather see if go to a good home though.
The best bit of advice anyone on this board can give you is one I received as well. Take your time and don't buy the first bus that jumps out at you until you're really sure. There are plenty of other buses out there and a good foundation is key to any conversion. Just take your time and make sure you're really sure before you pull the trigger.
