Which ones are the hardest to find and most valuable? Obviously not the new ones, but I remember seeing a White Activity one on eBay, was that a real production one, or a custom? What others are worth anything?

Obviously the older the model, the harder its going to be to find. I think the model that replicates a 90s All American are most common, however the 80s All American models seem to go up pretty good on ebay. I can't tell you if they made custom models but there are certainly a lot of customized versions of the BB models where individuals have painted/ applied decals to them.

Thanks for your reply.

Was the activity bus actually produced with the school buses?

^ That looks like a normal AA FE model. Either it was taken on a camera with poor color quality, or the model was left out in the sun and its faded off yellow.

Yes, they produced the white activity style buses just as they did the yellow ones. I bought one about 10 years ago from my Blue Bird Dealer. You may want to check with some dealers, they may have some. They do turn up on ebay occassionally.
