Title in hand and in my name since 1978 when I bought this bus and drove it all over the western US in the 80's. We've moved several times since the new engine and I just never got around to finishing the interior and driving BetterBlue again. It's been nearly 20 years and looks like I won't get around to it.Serious buyers only thanks, $500 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit due within 24 hrs of auction end.
This vehicle is sold as is, where is. I have done my best to describe and show in photographs the condition. As such, there is no offer of warranty in any form for any aspect of the vehicle. Purchaser is advised to arrange for transport of vehicle rather than driving it long distance, it has not been on the road enough in the last several years to know it's road worthiness for a long drive. I have dozens of photographs and am willing to take more of specific areas.. contact me through EBay to request; likewise, if I have left out pertinent information, just ask.
WILL ALSO BE FOR SALE ELSEWHERE, SO AUCTION MAY END EARLY FOR LOCAL SALE
Thanks for looking!
