August 1st, 2019 Update: The seller’s post expired and without finding a replacement listing, we’re calling this short bus “Sold!”
We just found what may be the coolest short bus ever: a Quigley-equipped 2005 F350 school bus chassis that the private seller firmly wants $20,000 for that we found here on Craigslist in Suffolk County, New York (Long Island). We can’t tell from the description whether this was converted from new or the seller had Quigley do the conversion recently; you’ll need to confirm that directly with him.
If you’re not familiar with the Quigley name, this Pennsylvania-based company specializes in converting full size van and RV chassis to four wheel drive for both commercial and consumer applications. Their work is recognized as OEM quality and consequently tend to demand top dollar whenever they are offered for sale. Suffice it to say that this school bus isn’t some cobbled together conversion in the private seller’s garage. You’re starting with a solid chassis to build your off-road capable rig with. The Achilles heal of this rig is the 5.4L Ford Triton V8. Do your homework on what to look for on these engines before you do an in-person inspection on this rig.
Even more appealing is the fact the interior is currently gutted and awaiting your customization! Design and build it right and this would make a great off road/overland vehicle that’s easily serviceable. Good luck with the purchase!
