You will likely find quite a number of coaches available in your model and size range. Janet has enumerated a good selection of the items to consider. Another good source to consult is to check out the Price vs. Condition
page on R. J. Dial's website - - this page will give you an idea of the critical features to examine on a Vintage coach as well as provide you with some guidelines regarding values for a coach in a given condition.
Good luck with your search!
