Bus International

Helping my son get his bus loaded and on it’s way to France for a new life. No engine, transmission, or brakes! 🤪 Well there was an engine/tranny laying in the back, Lol.
He has sold several buses and every one went overseas.

Nice! Depending on the model these busses can score between 20 and 40 k€ when properly restored.

Those old buses are still popular.

Interesting niche market your son has tapped into!

Sonja,
yes. It's crazy isn't it? This one is the roughest one he has had. Literally dragged it out of a field. He wanted to restore it himself, but he is returning to college, so no time for it. He has another that is in better shape and running that he is keeping.

Hi Richard,
Yes they are. They are completely unreliable, underpowered, so many negatives, and yet we love them. (Maybe a little like Urals?) They just put a smile on your face when you drive/ride in them.

Hi Dom,
It is interesting, and he has made money on every one he's sold. This last one is a basket case, yet someone wanted it enough to ship it overseas. Crazy!

Yes, like Urals. Sometimes I think I should have kept the ‘82 and ‘83 buses I had. One ran and one parts. Both Westphalia campers.
