Just on the seats issue - have you asked whether the seller would prefer to keep them? If you're buying from a coach operator or coach dealer, the seats in your bus may be better than those in one of their other vehicles.

I did just that with mine, and not only did the seller remove and keep the seats, but he 'paid me' for them by delivering the coach several hundred miles for free too. In fact 'my' seller was particularly sensitive about seats, as he told me a story about how he had once swapped the seats out of an accident damaged vehicle into one of his other coaches. He wasn't trying to pull a fast one - it just seemed a sensible thing to do. Later he got in trouble for re-using part of a vehicle on which he had received a 'total loss' insurance pay-out.


A shameless plug for my business - visit for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.
