This is a 2006 Ford E-450 Handicap Bus Conversion with 283k miles on a 6.0L diesel engine (bulletproofed). I've been getting about 13 miles a gallon, give or take. I am the second owner, the first being a school district in Suffolk, New York. It was retired in December of 2017, and we picked it up in March of 2018. It was maintained meticulously by the school district and we kept up with the recommended maintenance as we've had it. It is registered as a house car in the state of North Carolina, so you don't have to worry about converting the title. It passed inspection in May 2019.
I put a dent in front of the rear passenger tires when I swiped a truck in a full Walmart parking lot, but it's purely cosmetic and could probably be beat out. It has the rust that you'd expect from a vehicle that lived its life in a place that salts the roads, but this hasn't led to ANY problems for me. The bottom left panel of the swing doors also has a spidered crack of mysterious origins, but it's not getting any larger than it already is. The radio isn't hooked up because it started acting wonky and I was planning on popping a new one in there.
We did the interior ourselves to meet our needs. It includes a bed frame that can fit a full-size mattress (You can even have the one that's in there if you need it). The bed frame has four deep drawers and space along the wall to fit milk crates or things of similar size. We kept the front bus seat and rotated it around to serve as a "couch" and as a place to buckle in a car seat. There is 8 feet of counter space, half of which is open underneath. The other half includes a cabinet to install fresh/grey water tanks if you want to put in a sink. There is also a drawer and another cabinet with shelves for storage. The walls are mostly wood paneling with 2 inch foam board behind them. The floors are vinyl.
The only reason I'm selling it is because it is too big for the type of travel I'm getting into now, but don't let it's size sway you. It has power and can take you down the interstate, back appropriate forest roads, and everywhere in between. It is move-in ready, and I wouldn't hesitate for a second to hop in and drive it across the country and back (again).
I'm asking $8,000.
