Actually for a PA bus it is not bad rust wise 

on a brief inspection it has some bubbling of the paint in the beltline (letterboard area) but nothing seemed to be soft.  also on the cub side the vertical support between the 1st and 2nd compartment had cancer pretty bad at the bottom, this was the worst of it I think.

it has one small problem: We think the compression seal is gone on one of the heads as it will occasionally blow off a radiator hose.  I don't think this has happened since it was double clamped....but I don't think it has been thoroughly tested either.

Stan took a look at it last week when he was staying with my folks.

price?  there is a scrapper in the Baltimore area that's paying 5000.00 for 40 foot coaches to scrap out.......I think less cost to get it there.

Might be a good parts bus for someone as well as I understand Silver Eagle is among the missing......has a brand new radiator core

looks like it is going to the scrapper.  Ashame that someone does not even want it as a parts bus......they will kick themselves when they need something off it down the road  :(
