What am I to do when I already have two Scenicruisers to work on and this pops up down the street(i.e. 20 Miles from home).  A true Bus nut would think, how can I add this to the uncompleted bus fleet with out the wife finding out..

As always, I do not have a thing to do with this seller, My brother found this listing after seeing it at a business he stopped by.

That is a nice looking bus, but . . . .

(Broken Arrow) is an accurate, concise description.

"Needs a rear end & head gasket" - that tells me that to put it back on the road it will cost enough to make the $2000 selling price irrelevant.

Dallas you are correct it's the same MC-7 needs a 3rd member and engine O/H due to water and or antifreeze in the crankcase.
If it were me I would run the other way real fast. Tongue

But it is soooo close and soooo cheap........ maybe use it for parts or parting out or an extra storage shed for bus parts or a greenhouse  Wink

Well, it does say $2000 or make offer. I would try $1000.  If they want it out of there and nobody else is interested you might get it for that. Grin

That is the bus Bryan and I messed with. The pumpkin is in the middle bay drivers sidewith a few teeth off the ring gear. I wanted the stainless skins for my bus but they are all dented. I think it also needs a clutch and throw out bearing. The price was $1500.00 with 2 new 4 D starting batts. It might have enough parts to pay for itself if you could get it for around $800.00. You can get a rear end from Sam in Kansas or Bryan knows a guy there in Tulsa with one for $700.00 however that one will not fit. Good Luck
