Thinking of the second one.  It will probably go for very little.  The interior looks like it could have been a professional build from way back.

That second one appears to be a 1971 Flxible "New Look". I wonder what engine and transmission it has.

The Flx could have a 6V-71, 6V-92, 8V-71 in a V drive-which this is (they also came with Cummins V903 in straight drive). Judging by the shifter it is a VS transmission. Nice looking conversion though. Good Luck, TomC

This flx was a transit bus?  Would it still have city gearing( of i know there is no way of anyone knowing with asking the converter/ owner)  i mean would it run highway speeds without being tached all out . the inside is pretty nice that windshield would take some getting used to!

Or you could go with this one instead:

For anyone that wants to spend a little less, there are several converted 4106's and other conversions on Inland Empire Craigslist.  Some as low as $6k.

I think that windshield looks so cool, even better than those other "new look"s.  ;D
