Information on selling an old bus

Hi there,

We have an old GMC C5 Cab 25 seater diesel bus from 2007 that we're looking at selling, moving on.

It's currently just sitting there collecting time and has done for several years now. It doesn't run atm and would likely need a fair bit of work to get her road legal again.

Wondering what the market is like for that kind of bus as maybe a restoration or project? Or are there other avenues to go down?

Any info you can fire my way would be great.

That's the kicker right there. It not running takes it from being worth 5-10k as a shuttle bus to being worth virtually scrap price. You're at the mercy of what someone will pay who is willing take on such a project, knowing it's a blank check and time card to get it going again.

This thing might just get scrap price, which is a grand or two.

Being an 07, it's not old enough to be viewed as a restoration project imo.
