The schoolie looks like a nice roof-raise. Hopefully the build quality is as good as how the exterior looks (good welds, thoughtful bracing, etc.).

It seems to be a reasonable price for a partial build out. There is a LOT of interior work left to do. It is not unusual for a builder to become fatigued with a project.

As for horsepower, school and transit busses are often powered and geared for a maximum speed of 55~60 mph, since few of them have lengthy highway travel requirements. That does leave them a bit underpowered, if the axle ratio is modified to allow more comfortable cruising speed on the highway.

What I found especially interesting is that the transit coach next to the schoolie also appeared to be a Blue Bird (if I made out the lettering on the front). Could it be that the owner decided to dump the schoolie and do a transit bus instead? (Probably a wide body....)

Love to see pictures of that one. I sorta lust after a prevost. I am convinced the BB is a much better coach when all is considered but I like the "looks" of the older Prevost coaches, those with the stainless sides. The newer ones don't do all that much for me but I am sure they are wonderfully fine machines.

Totally out of my reach financially. Doesn't stop me from stretching my neck when I see a nice one on the highways or parked some place.

I can't keep my wheels polished that stainless might be a negative if I owned one
