It isn't clear from the listing if they are really selling the coach as it sits.  They really want you to have them build out a conversion using this coach as the base.

Yeah, Cody, don't they all?

I marvel at all these low mileage coaches that just got a rebuild, or new tranny or whatever.
If they're so low mileage why'd they need a rebuild?

And why would somebody go through all that and sell the bus at a loss? Maybe they actually do that, i don't know. Just doesn't make sense to me.

It's a rule on ebay, all buses must have a major rebuild before they can be sold for a fraction of what the rebuild cost, just show the documentation lol.

It states that that price is for coach as is only. If you want them to build it out, you have to call them to discuss it. Looks like a nice coach for the money.

Cody,

It might just be worth getting the rig, for that freshly rebuilt engine Cheesy.

Any takers? lol

Still looks like a decent coach.

God bless,

John

I dunno if YOU are missing anything, but it appears that the COACH is missing several windows.  The ad implies that they will do the conversion (for a price), but doesn't say that you can't just hand them the $7000 and roll out of their yard.

They say 400K miles, with an engine rebuild 90K ago.  I find it hard to believe that a 6V would only get 310K, especially with an auto trans.

When the claim is for an undocumented rebuild it makes me doubt what else they say, the window frames appear to be inside leaning on the wall.  The ad does say the price is for the coach "as is" or for a price they will do a conversion, what price isn't said. but if the rebuild is documented then it's a very good price unless the rebuild got botched up somehow.  Another thing I don't see is a guage for turbo boost, it should be right beside the fuel guage just below the air pressure guages.  I emailed them a question asking for the documentation on the rebuild, the windows and the vin number.

Cody, that is a GSA Eagle and they were spec. for bid and the ones I have been around don't have boost gauges along with a few other missing things compered to your std Eagle coach, a way of saving tax payers money by the government YEA do you believe that


good luck

To take that bus home as is for $7000 is right on or a little high. Based on what I see & don't see in the pictures there's going to be a lot of rust issues on this one. Just look at the uprights in the bay picture. It probably has been sitting for a while with those windows out too. Good luck.

John, that is not bad for rust it still has the baggage compartments and the doors hanging LOL and the sides or the front don't look bad even the electrail panel door looks good the guy has some kind of sales deal going on with that bus I believe. 
7000 grand is not bad for a Eagle with 400,000 miles on the torsion they are just getting settled in buy those and your looking at over 12 grand plus labor
 

good luck

I really shouldn't even be looking at it lol, unless he comes down almost 8 grand I can't afford the 7 grand he's asking lol. I wouldn't mind doing another one but really shouldn't be even thinking about it.
