I've been reading these forums obsessively but have never had a reason to post until now.
I'm looking to buy a bus, both for myself and a school project, (low- energy heating and cooling! perfect for a bus!) and there is one nearby that I'm interested in.
The description lists:
Running Condition: Good
Transmission: Allison Automatic
Body Style: Transient
And some of pictures of rust are attached to this post (i think i did that correctly)
Here's the link: Public Surplus: Auction #1770110
Is the rust extensive enough to be worrisome (would this scare you away entirely)? How much would an underbody spray cost?
And, assuming the transmission is an mt643 or Md3060, what should I be paying for this bus? I was thinking $2,000 at most, considering tires, brakes, mileage.
Many thanks! I'm itching to get started!
