1975 MCI MC-8 40 Passenger Bus ProjectThis is a 1975 MCI MC8 40 passenger bus.
I started the project to convert to Motor Home but am unable to continue the project.
The seats and overhead luggage trays have been removed.
The bus runs. It is PRE-DDEC. Which is important. This diesel engine has no electronic controllers to go bad.
I have purchased over $10,000.00 in parts and supplies toward the conversion and they are in the bus, ready to go.
A partial list of the parts on board:
I have begun parting out the items inside the bus. SOME ITEMS LISTED are not going to be there. I will try to update, but what is there is what you get, and, with the exception of the Solar system, missing items will not lower the price. I am selling this at less than half what I have into it for the bus and parts alone.

Floor tileThe original bus A/C system does not work. I was planning to rely on the R/V Roof System
The bus has two mechanical issues.
1. Needs the alternator rebuilt/replaced
2. Needs the Air Compressor Rebuilt/replaced
To tow the bus, one must hook the tow truck\\\'s air system to the bus auxiliary input. I drove the bus from Denver to Mesa to park it where it is now. I used an auxiliary air compressor for the trip. The alternator problem only comes into play in that it is not putting out a full 24 volts. It\\\'s putting out about 18, not enough to boost the batteries.
I believe in full disclosure in selling. I will answer questions to the best of my ability. Contact me for more info.
I am located in Hawaii. The bus is with a friend in Mesa, AZ.
