When this bus came out it was Called the Sports Car of Busses because it had such good handling qualities.  Google it and you will find out why it was so appreciated.  Greyhound had many of these buses for cross-country coaches.

The plan for the bus was to live in it and travel to music festivals etc. and I was planning on keeping the bus for ten or twenty years.  I have now lost a good portion of my vision and cannot drive it. So, I will sell it.

I’m using it as a recording studio right now.

In another listing, I also have many spare parts including another engine (but the engine in the bus is very good.)  8V71 Detroit and standard trans. Parts include a spare door, windows, cargo doors, radiator, etc.  These parts are not included in the bus sale. those parts are in Coolidge AZ.
