Is it a 40'? or 45' as the link says? - Longer than I wanted but your Thoughts about this bus greatly appreciated.  Why does it say 2000? And what is with the old freezer box?

I don't see where it could be a 45' stretch.    This came from the factory as a 40'

The number of bays and the rear overhang look like a 40'

 It looks like the coach is a 74, converted in 2000, it will be a 40 footer at this age and also a 96" wide body, not the 102" as they were in later years. It would help the seller if he/they would include things like the estimated engine mileage, tire age, and other items that would directly effect the price.>>>Dan

Thank you both.  I did look up the model year but the link had 45' in the left column vertically.  Thought that was strange.  Any idea what that ice box is all about?  Looks like rust along the lip of it.

1974 bus, I couldn't see anywhere it said 45 foot, so it's a 40 footer.  Fiberglass beauty update on the outside, who knows what is behind it.  Update was in 2000, so it's 13 years old and shows a little dating - not an era I remember fondly for artistic or decorating excellence.  Basically it's an old bus, dated party bus interior, and an outside beer fridge that they seem to be quite fond of.  Very pretty on the outside, might be great, who knows?

It doesn't look like a very good deal to me. Just me, but I would pass.

Cheers,

Yep look down the right hand side and they did put Length(45' In the middle area) in the underlying drawing and over-sized measurement on the bay door drawings I guess to show if you added them up maybe it would be 45. No I didn't add it up. Just saying.
