A lefty engine would be great if you like backing up a lot. :-)

Wouldn't it be cheaper just to pull the engine and then scrap the remainder?  Of course, you might not have the resources to pull the engine where it sits.

Scrap dealers want you to deliver or they charge you more than you can get by selling if they pick it up.The bus being made of Stainless would be a major project to cut up for scrap IMO

The pictures show the engine and trans separated from coach on the engine subframe. Just need equip to load. That, and maybe tires and wheels, although I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't radials. Bias play transit tires are very common due to their much better ability to handle curbs and such. If you could leave the rest, (save computers and at least some harness with the plugs for ecm and trans,engine), it maybe a good deal. Not worth the effort to cut up the rest, since body panels are of little scrap value and a plasma cutter is going to be needed to cut the ss. Plus,who knows what local regs are to cut it up. Are you allowed to take a DDA two cycle out of California?

" Low mile recently rebuilt 6V92 LH Detroit Diesel engine with V731 Transmission with value of $3500+ alone. Have receipts for rebuilt engine. Original engine on site, rebuildable, included if you want it. "

Pretty sure that is a picture of the engine/trans that came out of it when the "rebuilt" one went in!
