Hmmm......$14,000 starting bid, only 4 pictures of the outside, and no other info or description?   I don't think that this one will get any bids, i know i wouldn't bid on it as is. Seller needs to have a lot better presentation if he wants to sell it.

  Lot of newer fully converted Buses in that price range. If its just a Bus with seats its not worth anywhere near what hes asking.

Looks pretty good for a 45 year old 5A. Of course you want to see more pictures.

"This MCI Challenger 1966 Bus is Customized by Factory and is being sold as is.

A GREAT DEAL!

Great potential. "

A GREAT DEAL? For whom at that price?

I'm hearing that more and more.. I can't understand why a seller will go to the trouble of advertising a bus and then not want to answer questions, respond to emails, or return phone calls. Back when I was searching for a bus, I know of 3 different sellers that trying to get any info out of them was like trying to pull teeth. If a seller doesn't want to respond to you then look elsewhere.. Usually there is a reason a seller doesn't want to answer a specific question. There are lots of buses out there and alot better buys than what this guy is offering.

I just had a friend buy a $25000 boat over Ebay but advertised by a broker of some sorts for the seller. Limited pictures and such. Advertised as an 8 of 10. When he drove 700 miles to complete the transaction it was more like a 2 of 10 and a total pos! The owner couldn't understand why he didn't want it. Luckily it just cost him time and gas. It takes all kinds.
