Only way to know if it is a good deal is to wait until the auction ends.

I thought the starting bid of $4k was high.
Lots o' rust in that bucket. But the lipstick helps it look better, for now.


The paint job is hideous. It looks like someone spray painted the rustoleum from 10 yards away in high winds! I'd be scared what would be found under that "paint job" with the bus in metal.

The engine compartment is scary. We all love seeing that Ford Pinto carb in place. Laughing

$1400 for both doesn't seem too terrible?

Granted, they are crusty Maine junkyard buses .

man ,if i had the cash id be all over this.


Two things would scare me away-

* Where it's located
* It's a bondo bucket with lots of rust. The rear hatch seal is dried up and oversprayed. I'd hate to see this bus stripped naked in bare metal.

Hard to tell what sort of shape it’s in from the pictures, but looks like a pretty good deal to me at $1800 CAD...


My favorite line.... this is an Alberta vehicle that has mated out here and needs work

Not sure where else to put this. Not so much a good deal as interesting. Delete if necessary. A TVA electric bus. I saw something here some time ago, but could not quickly locate the thread just now.
