And it's got the obligatory Cummings engine  -  I guess that's better than a Goings engine.   It's even got its own on-board source of fresh penicillin growing on the bedroom wall, so handy if you get an infection from lying in bed there.   And what the hell is that strange little horned animal in the fifth picture?   Some sort of demonic manifestation?   And you thought Halloween was bad enough . . .

I appreciate the seller's honesty when he says "The bus will still coast".   Does this mean it will only go downhill without any trouble?   I think it's already gone as far downhill as any bus can go.

This bus should be called The Antichrist, like that old Landrover in The Gods Must Be Crazy.

Happy Halloween, John

No joke. That thing is a mess. He couldn't GIVE it to me.

That is totally nasty. Weird little rat, or whatever creature that it comes with.

And he is asking $7500. This guy has a problem smoking things he shouldn't. What a pipe dream.

Wow I guess you haven't seen my sons cruiser, the price is out of his league, but please don't let him see this bus!  Here's a little clip of his and his friends buses coming home after a trip from Alabama to Vermont.  The first bus made the trip with no problems, the second lost the harmonic balancer around Utica Ny.  The bus did not come with any demonic entite's, but it did include a black cat that adopted him, he named it Two Stroke.

I kinda like the color. Notice he he leaves out the part of weather it runs or not. Maybe MEGABUS cold buy or lease it for a PR boost since most of the color is in place. Smiley

I like the fact he's asking $350 per mouth if you want to rent it.  That could get expensive for a family!

FWIW & HTH. . .

This is PD4501-597. This was for sale in 2010 for the same $7500. Not sure if same owners or different. Listing back then stated fresh 8V-71 and allison auto. ??

Maybe I'm blind, but I see a diamond in the rough.

It's still a Scenicruiser ! well sort of.

If you know of the whereabouts of a PD4501 Scenicruiser - I would like to add the serial number to my registry of surviving Scenics.  www.tomsgarageonline.com

I like scenics, even scary ones.  The interior of this one just needs a little dumpster love.

However, my favorite CL ad is for the "1884 MCI Bus" see http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/rvs/3361616007.html

As someone who is looking at a lot of on-line advertisements, I believe that someone should teach a bus staging seminar.

What, you mean we should flush the loo before taking a picture of it?   Nah, who cares?

Well, if the seller has been living in it for a few years, I guess it must be a functional pad.  Whether it runs and will go very far is another question.

Personally, I have a disgust of someone else's squaller full time living quarters.  I also dislike entertainer buses for the same reason.  I also dislike hotel rooms for the same reason.  When I use my bus I know that me, my wife and son are the only ones that have ever used it.

Hey Geoff,

Don't you think that if someone were to buy this (doubtful) they would be interested in it purely for the potential that it could present, and not to live in it.

I agree with what you say, I am the same way.  But I looked at it with the idea of what "it could possibly be" and not what it apparently was (not much).

Back in the late 90's, there was a gentleman that bought a Scenic-Cruiser and did so much work to it it didn't look anything like a PD4501 when he was done, and had all new running gear.  Bus Conversions magazine did a feature on it.  It was an incredible bus and one to envy.  However, the owner was in ill health and died shortly afterwords.  I guess he believed in "you can't take it with you".  Does anyone remeber this bus?
