Argosy shuttle bus

I have an Argosy shuttle bus. It has been parked for years. It was running fine when i parked it. I need to give it a new home. I have a few questions- how do I find out what it is worth? Are they desirable? Where would I go to get more information? It is located on the central coast of California.

I saw one for sale on Craigslist in Seattle last summer. I think it was fairly inexpensive, but also fairly rough condition. Just like anything, the key will be the condition. It's kind of a cool oddity, but definitely not for everyone.

Now that might be fun. Can you post some pictures?

I found more information on the Argosy I have parked. It was built in 1978, the DMV paperwork says it is an Argosy and the model is BU. It has been parked and weathering for a few years, the tired are inflated, it ran when it was parked. I took pictures and am trying to figure out how to post them. I need to dispose of this bus, it needs a to be moved ASAP. MY question is; if I sold it for scrap would it be a loss to the Argosy world? Is this something that should be saved?
Thank you,
Mrs. Mueller
PS Any hints on how to post pictures? I'm getting the message that my picture (I tried to do them all at once, then one at a time) file is too large. I am truly a rookie at this.

Once you take pictures, open them in microsoft paint and then save them as a .jpg file. Even if already a .jpg, microsoft paint will eliminate unnecessary details and bring a 1-3mb file down to about 100-300kb which should be small enough to post. Looking forward to seeing the pics.

Unusual and rare, yes, valuable, probably not. Old shuttle busses are readily available and places like churches use them for going to camp etc, but otherwise the market is pretty slim. Rebuilding it to a Motorhome would be very difficult and expensive. You can still get used Argosy motorhomes pretty cheap. 35 to 40 year old motorhomes of any brand are not only somewhat technologically obsolete, but costly to run and repair.

Just some observations. I have owned both an Argosy and an Airstream Motorhome.

You're in a good state to sell it. List it on food truck sites as well. It was built on a Chevy P30 van chassis. The same as a food truck.

FWIW, I'd love to have it, but couldn't justify the cost of shipping it to TN.
