Looking for school bus Chris 1-23-03  
Looking for a good school bus for camper. Prefer automatic, but would consider manual. Should have a big diesel (turbo) air brakes, etc. I am in the western Colorado area. Want to take it to Alaska this summer.

Any advice on type of bus would be great.

Lots of good buses and bus parts pat young 11-5-05  
I have diesel school buses, Crowns and Gilligs with almost all engine types, mid engine and rear engine.

I also have Allison automatics (5 speeds) and fire truck parts, and LOTS of bus parts.

You can come and look at anything I have, put 30-40 miles on it if you wish, watch the water temperature, oil pressure, air pressure, etc. and then you won't hurt my feelings if you keep looking around for other buses.

I don't sell any bad or broken/patched up stuff. Those kind of buses get parted out, or I use them for storage.

Happy bussing

Look at the Crown directory in my Backflip:

Fine looking hunk of hardware

Built like a brick house.

Flat nose, avoid the "hippie bus" stigma of dognoses.

Adaptable driveline. Can equip it with Spicer 4 or 5 speed, Fuller Roadranger 10 or 12, or auto.

Tandem axle models have drive to both axles. 8 drive wheels, 10 braking wheels.

Small underfloor compartments. Not much, but more than other schoolies.

Built on a truck chassis. Uses truck driveline, brakes, wheels, tires. Truck tires are $300 each, bus tires $400 each.

Later ones have turbo, dual air system.

Available at $2500 - $13500 depending on condition.

Re: Looking for school bus Chris 1-28-03  
Sounds interesting, do have digital photos you can e-mail. Can you fill me in a little more on the drive train. Cruising speed? etc. Any rust?

Don't miss the large number of buses on E-Bay! I just checked and there are many. Go to then click the link for ebay motors and the sublink buses and motorcoaches. Careful! There are a lot - enough to get you drooling on your keyboard
