All, I just found this site tonight. I run a summer youth camp that has grown (over doubled from last year) and I need another 66 to 71 passenger bus that our non-profit camp can afford. Ideally, it'd match our 91 Thomas/Int Diesel Hyd brake conventional, or could be a year or two newer. I will drive virtually anywhere to find one under $5k that's got some good miles left in her. I have cash and camp starts June 6th!!

$50 finder's fee to hook me up.

Thanks everyone.

Go to - Doing a blind search for IL, I find two buses that look promising (?) - asset numbers 460975 and 485120. Blue Bird bodies, but Hyd. brakes and 71/65 pax, International chassis....located in Glennwood. Narrow the search down, 65-71pax, Int., automatic, all states (regions are not available) - 248 results to look through.

Happy bus hunting!


Edit - 509074 in IL also looks promising - a bit out of the price range, but not that much.

Give me a yellow object. Yes. Right now. I need my yellow chocolate, for goodness sake!

In Illinois, there's also Midwest Transit at Large selection in your state.

Spicer is nicer.

kd4jfd has a bus he's wanting to sell. He has an '87 or '88 Blue Bird Chevy with gas engine and air brakes. I'm not sure on the price.

Call me on my cell (you will probably have to leave a message.) (deleted)
I'm asking $1,500.00. Clear title, high headroom, luggage racks.

You can try Taylor Bus Sales @ (800) 222-1500 - they typically have a large number of used buses available.
