Here is the text from the ad:

1985 Silver Eagle bus ready for your conversion!

These buses are very rare and sought after!

Detroit Diesel 8v92 power plant with an Allison automatic transmission. Has aftermarket Alcoa stainless steel rims all the way around. All the tires in good condition with the exception of one. All of the glass and exterior are in excellent shape. Very rare aftermarket windshield visor / baseball cap. The interior boost, a stainless steel bathroom, all functioning. Most seats were removed but about 25 seats remain. Otherwise, the interior is in original condition.

The bus is not all stripped out, leaving a fresh canvas for you to start your conversion.

It has 380,000 original miles.

This bus is known for its entertainment coach conversions due to the rear suspension being totalistic giving a very smooth ride.

This is a 40-foot, tri-axle bus.

Fully operational except it will need batteries. Will also need new windshield wipers.

Title in hand.

$15,000, obo.

This has been on Craigslist for 20 days.

Mason,   and...wonder what those Alcoa stainless steel wheels weigh?  Might allow better handling on curvy roads.  :shock:

I think it's pretty well established that the owner does not have much knowledge of Eagles. Two four inch exhaust pipes, stainless wheels, very rare visor, triple axles, original interior with non-Eagle seats, and "totalistic" suspension, wow.
