|Re: Ford Bus Info? by Pat Young|
I have a couple of Ford buses I am parting out. One has a Carpenter body, and the other one I forgot. They aren't great buses, especially the Carpenter. It is one cheaply made machine.
Why don't you consider a Gillig or Crwon? They cost about the same, and are three times better than the Fords. I've driven all of them, and generally am not impressed with the Fords, although I do like their pickups a lot, and have owned an
F250, an F350, and an F600 Uhaul.
The Uhaul got 2 miles per gallon around town, and about 5-6 onthe freeway.
So if you have a gas powered Ford, it will eat you alive in fuel costs (but they do have rugged engnes) and will not have anywhere near the torque of a diesel, and get about half the fuel mileage.
I can offer lots of bus advice, I've owned about 50 buses, 90% diesel. The diesel is not any harder to maintain than the gas engine, and will make you a lot happier in the long run.
