Tom, thanks for the notice.  Phyllis and I have several tie-ins.  The first bus company I worked for had purchased several used transits from Jackie Wilson.  Later, when we bought our 4107, we discovered it had been owned by Wilson Bus Lines.  On one family trip up there, we dropped into the garage -- and were given a gracious tour by Pete.  Quite something to see the 4901 and the articulated Eagle.

Finally, I'm quite familiar with that funeral home, it's the one we used for my Mother in Law about 8 months ago.

Truly a loss for the bus industry.

Arthur

Thanks guys! The adelmans site definitely has some cheap prices in comparison to what I would be paying for the rebuild. I'm wondering why type of guarantees come with these.

It seems that half of you would never buy a used engine, and half of you would, LOL! I'm still over here trying to make decisions.

I'm thinking of making the drive on Thursday to look at the Prevost. I already have seen many pics, I know it's nice, just after going thru this motor stuff, just want to make sure this motor is well taken care of, it has 212,000 miles. I've never done an oil test, so when I go look at the bus, I should just get some oil from the bus and take it with me? How does all of that work? I would appreciate any detailed advice on that LOL. Thanks!

Pete Wilson recently passed away of Stomach cancer .  http://www.wilsonbus.com/       Pete and his family has owned/restored several unique coaches over the years. They had/have articulated Eagles, the "Golden Chariot" PD4901, and a Scenicruiser . Huge loss to his family and the entire bus industry/hobby.

Wow, that's a lot of work..  All that fabrication.   It's sad to see you have to sell it.    The EL3 is still one of the nicest looking buses built.  Good luck with the sale Jim.

Did not, Bruce, but I will since you informed me. Do you have a link to a source?

Thanks for the info.

Jim

I thought Prevost buses never break so you wouldn't need all those tools. Smiley

Hi Sean

Congrats on your Scenic purchase. I get to K-zoo 4 times per year for work. I have been going there for 15 years, and never knew of this bus. I will have to check my serial number roster tonight to see if I have any other former owner info beyond GH. There are a few other Scenic owners in your area: Tim Binder in Saugatuck, and Ron Isenhath has two in Eaton Rapids.

Looks like your bus has been re-skinned? what is that guys, buffalo skin? It looks wider than 4501 or 04.

Good luck, and please stay in touch. Take care

   That is going to be a hot space for batteries, rough ride, and susceptible to damage from blown tire.
Sure seems like a lot of work to do a center door. Passenger can still ride across form driver, but slightly back in normal door location. Most efficient use of space wit it the way it was designed. Be easier to start with city bus. The amount of steps to get to the high floor is going to dictate a lot of eaten space. Just say n....

Sam's Town for us. Especially if you can nab a spot that has a bit of shade. Probably not an issue for a December stay.
