Do you know if Chassis was rebuilt along with the power train? If so, by who?

I wouldn't know the specifics of that stuff, but I have seen some units at MTB. Wouldn't be surprised if they've done some of that work for them.

Not sure if they'd make a good commuter bus or charter service with those KM's but at that price they'd make for a great RV Motor home.

For 10 or 15 grand more, you could get a professionally converted from factory 1980s vintage coach with lower overall mileage, hasn’t spent its entire life in the salt belt, no emissions devices to maintain, and only needing a decor update.

The rebuilt power train has over 200,000km, it can go for another 1.3 million KMs before needing to be rebuild again. The Greyhound US units of this Model year are probably worse then Northland's units. They want up to $50k for each bus.

The MCI Looks to be in good condition. It will need a paint job.

It depends on what you would use it for.

Actually since it was brought up, does anyone know why MCI doesn't dabble in the factory motorhome market and compete with Prevost? Surely the J4500 is a suitable vehicle for a market like that.

Actually they do. Just not in the volume prevost does.

Has anybody seen any of the 35 foot MCIs that ONTC supposedly ordered? And what is its number?

I have seen a photo of only one and it is number B1910. That appears to be the only one that they have.
