'95ish MCI 102D3= $35 to $40 000. Is a Prevost worth more than that? I don't know.

You need to give us the right model number I never heard of a H-35  they have h-40,h-41 and h-45 fwiw a friend of mine Cole bought a 1996 h-45 in Vegas at a Riche Bros sell for around 25 g's it worth what ever you pay


good luck

The Bus in the pictures appears to be a mid 90's H3-45 model seated coach.

The bus still has the quad windshields where as the newer models have dual windshields.

It still has the square quad head lights where as the newer ones are small and round.

It has the rear fenders that are molded into the side body where as the earlier H3-40 model has a small compartment above the wheels.

It could possibly be a H3-41 but I doubt it because of the year. The H3-41 was developed to accept the 60 series a little easier after they installed a few of them in the H3-40 a couple of years prior.

Due to the year you state I would guess it has a 60 series engine and possibly a 750t auto trans.

As for a tire suspension sensor? Never heard of one but that's not to say there isn't one. I have a 92 H3-40 and it does NOT have this sensor!

You can always call Prevost and give them the vin number and they will be happy to give you every detail about THAT coach free of charge! Call Prevost Parts and talk to any of the people that answer the parts phone!

As for pricing? I am guessing in the neighborhood of 30-40,000 in good running condition for that year in THIS economy!

I think I found that bus, if it was owned and maintained by Dept of National Defence, it got everything it could have ever wanted in terms of upkeep.  they do a good job, and they don't skimp.
