asking 3000.00, it runs great and even has a few extra parts to go with it

78 IH School bus. Runs. Good shape. Put new tires on front when we got it and rotated best tires to back four. Recently replaced brake lines and other components on braking system so that's in good shape. Recently replaced spark plug cables and distro cap so that's in good shape. We used it for camping in so we added a pull out step to the back door. We have a ring and pinion set that we'd throw in as part of the deal in the event you're interested in changing the gearing to be different from the standard school bus gearing. Would help with the already good mpg of 15 and give you a slightly hirer crusing speed. By law we had to change it's color so we painted it dark purple with a white top. I have a picture of how it looked a few years ago but that's the only pic we have. e-mail me if you're interested. We'd like to get $1800 out of it but will entertain offers.

The bus is in Ft. Wayne Indiana.

We've removed most of the seats except for four at the front, two that are two rows back from that. I installed two plywood platforms over the wheel wells to allow them to be used for storage easier. I'm sure I could give more details if you can think of any questions to ask. I'll leave it at that.

This is to Jim Marton, I know its been a long time since your post but Im interested in your bus, if you still have it. Please email me if you are still interested in selling it. sorry to hijack this thread. Anyone else with a simple bus, dont care if it has seats or not, just would like mechanically sound. Thanks in advance.
