Default 1988 BB WL

NO, it's a 1978 SEVENTY eight!
Not sure what the 'conversion' is other than an update to newer front end...
It's not a schoolie... Cheap enough though $19000 (maybe)???

It's a "Schoolie". Take a close look at the area above the windshield. See the two round covers where the wig wag lights were. No Goat Rail, or awnings or genny door. Doubt a conversion mag would allow anything other than a conversion to be on it's cover page. The one picture looks very nice.

That's true about the mag not allowing an RV... ok, scratch this one off the list...

Were BB school buses ever 6V53 or any other DD 2-stroke powered? I think I remember seeing a FC WL discussed on the WOG that had a 6V conversion.

Sure would like to see more pics, just to see the work/ love someone put into it. No goat rails, but does have newer-than 1988 double rub rails.

Edit: Here are a few more pics: http://www.sellabus.com/cole.html

Holy Cow, that bus is nice inside! Thanks for the pics! I wonder if he has all the diagrams for wiring/plumbing? What about the price? I don't think a bank would loan on it would they? Is the bay storage different on a Schoolie - I would think it would have next to none...

Adrain, It would be much easier to put tooth paste back in the tube than it would be to borrow money on this bus.

First ad says 65K miles, second one says 165K.
No mention of a generator......

Interior does look nicely done.

Just based on the photos, Schoolie or not, it does look pretty nice. If I were looking I think I might at leas check it out if I were reasonably close to it.

This one is located in Thomas, OK last time I had seen a craigslist ad. If someone is truly interested, I could probably find time to go take a look at it. I'm about 30-40 minutes away.
