I would bet the B500 is destroyed if it is as bad as the engine looks.  It is probably a rebuildable core at best.  The rims could be questionable if the tires popped due to heat.

It looks like some of the bay doors are salvagable, but that is about it.  The rest appears to be scrap metal.  I like how the rebuild cost is listed as zero.  The only way to rebuild that bus would be a call to ABC Companies to order a new Van Hool.

What an easy conversion!  The interior is already gutted, the skins are mostly removed for a roof raise, all the old air conditioning lines are gone, easy access to the engine... Grin
