runs, ~150k on it. 6v92 with Allison 740. 22.5 Alcoa wheels. 2 - 3 of the tires just have a few miles on them. the rest are good used & road worthy. new upholstey inside last fall. 47 passenger. engine leaks oil. I must get back home to WA state and do not have time to have it repaired. heck, I'm already 3 days behind schedule. called around & can't quite find a place that takes busses. if anyone just wants to buy it, or has info on where I can take it, CALL or EMAIL me.

I just sent Dennis a PM, with someone that would probably take it and scrap it out.  He said time is of the essence, so if anyone's interested in buying the coach, saving it from the scrapper, you might want to move quickly.

I don't know Dennis, nor do I know anything about the bus -- so I'm mostly a bystander in this.

Art,
I have called Dennis and spoke with him about it.
I have also called Sonny and asked if he could look it over for me and if I could store it there for a bit. (Sonnie said yes to both.)
I have emailed Jeff asking the location of it and am waiting to hear back from him.

I'm not actually interested in the bus itself but rather the engine/interior for my 96A3.
But I'm swamped w/biz right now and it would have to wait until I can go after it.

The body, wheels, tires and other parts would be available if I buy it.

Bryce, our storage space in Carrollton (just north of Dallas, I-35 and State Highway 190) would be available for a while if you need it.  The 4107 is in Hutchins, getting its new transmission, and it'll then get a paint job. 

Let me know if I can help.  Nine Seven Two Four Six Six Four Six One One.

Thanks Arthur.
I got the location of the bus and I'm fixing to email it to Sonnie and see when he can go by and look at it for me. (Sonnie said I could store it at his place, but it might be easier at the moment to use your)
I'll get with you as soon as I know anything.
