  1. As far as I know the guy still has the bus. He would not budge on 25K and I am not comfortable over 18. knowing as little about bus values as I do. I will take a drive on Saturday and see if he still has it.
  2. Well it was an interesting day, the number stamped in front of the engine serial number is a 9 so it looks like it is the bigger engine. I gave my best offer today and he is going to let me know by Monday. It is 24' long and mechanically soud It is a flxible and the title says Buick and the model isTourmobile. I will let you guys know the out come in a few days. Bill
  3. Thanks guys for all the great information. I am fortunate enough to have room to work on it and a way to transport it. I never have enough time, but I do have a great support crew (wife and Kids) Saturday I make the decision on if I want to tackle it or not and If we can agree on the price. I will let you all know how it washes out. Thanks again, Bill

  5. I did find the engine number today,it is 4232801 and I found out some more history. It was owened by the Red Ball Bus company and it primary route was between Phoenix, Globe, through Salt River Canyon which was one of the most dangerous roads in Az to Show Low and back. We are still going back and forth on the value of it. The drive train is in good shape and there is no rust.
  6. It has a straight 8 with two carbs.
  7. Wow, Thanks for all the information. I have not pulled the trigger on it yet. We are still negotiating and I am thinking it will be in 10 to 12K range and hope it is worth that. My past passions were with vintage motorcycles.The engine is a straight 8 with 2 carbs. here is a shot of the inside and engine. Thanks!
  8. I am not sure, I do know it has hydraulic brakes and colum shift.
  9. Here is a picture of the front and back
  10. I do not have the history. I am just starting my research and hope I can find as much info as possible. Thanks, Bill
  11. As far as I know, The title say 1930 and the serial numbers match. i did not see a id plate on the firewall. Where is it located?
  12. I live in Tempe, here are some shots of the inside and back and front.
  13. This may be my next project. I have not seen another one, Any ideals would be welcome
  14. I have searched the internet and have not seen another one like it. It is a 12 passenger with wicker seats. It runs good and I can't wait to start on it.
