This beautiful 1976 Chevy school bus was originally converted in the 80’s. I redid the entire interior with brand new flooring, fresh paint on all walls, new bathtub and bathroom expansion, updated kitchen cabinets, hand-built bed and couch frame with reclaimed wood, and beautiful tiling on the kitchen counter.
The bus comes equipped with a fridge, oven, stove range, two-basin utility sink, bathtub, toilet, working AC and electricity, and a brand-new propane hot water heater. The propane tanks need to be switched out and the lines need to be tested for leaks. The fridge is not currently working and the oven/range need to be tested (I never hooked up the propane). The bus has a generator installed underneath but it needs to be replaced. There is a brand-new 17-gallon water tank and working water pump. The plumbing is copper but it works and all the interior lines are insulated.
The engine runs well–we just replaced the water pump and repaired the hydroboost system. The tires are in good condition for their age. The spare tire will eventually need to be replaced.
What’s left to work on:
- Install a table/countertop (if wanted)
- Repair or replace fridge
- Test and fix propane lines (if needed, like I said, I never tested them)
- Install light fixtures (electricity works and there is existing wiring for outlets and lights)
- Repair headlights (some driving lights work but there is a short with the blinkers that needs to be repaired)
This bus is already registered in the state of Arizona as a recreational vehicle. You’ll need to sort out your own insurance! This is the perfect bus for someone who is looking to primarily stay in one place and live out of a skoolie, or for someone who has experience working on old buses and doesn’t mind having to troubleshoot on the road.
