The owner, Matt sounds like a straight shooter. The bus is in southern Illinois. I have more pics if anybody is really interested. No body damage, one cracked side window. Adjustment rods look like they have never been touched.

Looks like the auction closed today, bidding went to about $10K...don't know the final outcome but since it didn't meet the minium it may not have sold

Hello All,
I am new to the board. I just recently purchased the aforementioned '88 Model 20. Great running bus! Suspension looks great and has not been touched. She's rusty in the usual places though (wheel wells and such).

Unfortunately I only made it an hour away from where I purchased her and she threw half a blade from the radiator fan. Thankfully it did not go into the radiator and I was able to remove the belt from the hydraulic pump so I could "limp" her another 180 miles into Nashville, TN to Eagle Nest Coach. A tall kitchen trash can cut longways and capped over the radiator door as a scoop is a lifesaver! It took two hours longer to get to Nashville but I made it WITHOUT a cooling fan! Temp never got above 200F. At 200F I would pull over and let her cool down for 15-20 minutes. I powered up hills and coasted down the other side. A nice thundershower 50 miles north of Nashville provided some "natural" cooling and I was able to run a decent speed to my destination. She is still there in Nashville.

The radiator was unharmed by the incident BUT it has so much fin rot that the shop is leary of removing it to repair the fan. They feel that it will leak after it is re-installed. I am now searching for a good used radiator OR a decently priced re-core.

I would consider selling her. LOL!
