1997 RTS Bus For Sale

Here's American city bus that was built under Nova Bus period, released in 1997 very well-known as the Rapid Transit Series or just RTS is a long-running series of transit buses since 1977-present still produced. As you've seen here is a great looking bus with attractive color, and there is no guarantee about free of rust, it does seem to be largely complete including all seats–the correct Detroit diesel engine with 90,000 miles on it.

It’s too cool to be left just like that, and we’d love to see it converted into RV and livery retained, despite the limited area can be passed by low-floor configurations. Found this one in Craigslist in Phoenix, Arizona for $8500.

Rare Alpine White 1997 BMW E36 M3

This third generation of the compact executive cars produced by Germany automaker BMW, commonly known as 3 Series (E36) and this is a performance variant of the E36 known as M3 models it came in 4-door sedan with a rare Alpine White color released in 1997 excellent condition has 172000 miles on it, ready to go.

Detail by owner
Rare 1997 M3 Sedan. Alpine White over Black interior. Automatic. 175,3xx miles.
Car has been stored indoors for the last year, and rarely driven.

Third Owner car, unmolested stock condition. The only upgrades from stock are stainless brake lines and a Spal electric fan upgrade. This car is cosmetically is in fantastic condition.

Over the last 6 months, I have completely gone over the chassis on the car, and it drives and handles as brand new. I had originally planned to install a manual transmission in the car but got carried away sorting the chassis. I still think swapping the trans in this car would be easier than finding a clean white m3/4 with this amount of maintenance done.

Here is a list of items that have been changed on the car. All work has been performed within the last 1000 miles, using oem parts.
  • Rear strut mounts reinforced and welded
  • Complete Cooling system including water pump, hoses, radiator and a Spal electric fan conversion
  • Complete Front and rear suspension overhaul including all new bushings, arms, hardware, nuts, bolts.
  • Front And rear struts
  • Brakes ,including new calipers, and rotors.
  • Wheel bearings
  • Diff mounts and bushings
  • Subframe Bushings
  • Glass european headlights
  • Plugs
  • Head gasket and rebuilt head
  • Hankook Ventus v12 Evo tires.

Here is what the car needs:
  • Drivers side window regulator ( new parts included with car)
  • The two rear wheels are curbed
  • Ebrake needs to be reconnected
  • Headliner needs to be reglued
  • Smog pump check valve needs to be replaced ( new parts included with car)
  • Small rust hole on rear quarter panel and another one on the drivers side front door. (east coast car)
  • The audio system is high end aftermarket, but was removed to perform the work on the rear strut mounts. The wiring in the car is stock, so a stock unit could be installed if wanted.
  • Car has a few small dents that could easily pulled out by a dent doctor.

Complete Restore, 1997 Land Rover Defender 90

Complete Restore, 1997 Land Rover Defender 90

This awesome British 4WD vehicle offered by Land Rover, as the picture is the Defender short wheelbase commonly known as Defender 90 was released in 1997 has been fully restored looking new home, interested please read detail below.

Detail by owner
1997 Land Rover Defender 90. It has only 79,000km original kilometres, chassis & motor. Completely restored and customized and is in immaculate condition. I personally imported it from Europe (Steering wheel is Left Hand Drive like Canada) and is powered by a fuel efficient 4 cylinder gasoline motor and 5 speed manual transmission. The motor was a select option of European Defenders and is also commonly used in mid 90's Discoveries. It also has a unique added feature of on the fly Propane Injection to reduce highway driving costs (and double fuel capacity). It is all wheel drive with locking diffs. The frame and undercarriage are excellent, due to the restoration and the arid Mediterranean climate it came from (Significantly better than German and UK vehicles. No salt, no winters, no rust!).

More High quality pics upon request..

Gotta see it. The car only has approximately 56,000 miles on it, registered and turn key and drives. AC Cools perfectly, heater warms excellent and interior and Radio works.

The nitty gritty.
  1. What needs to be done for it to truly be a perfect car. It's time for the Turbo to be upgraded, this car is built to handle 900+ horsepower and the turbo is older generation, occasional when you run it hard and long it will put out white smoke which means its burning little bit of oil, typical for older turbo's but the Motor was rebuilt and perfect so no concerns there
  2. The upgraded Tein suspension is getting old and needs to be rebuilt or replaced, the newer kits are better and just like any suspension things get old and need to be replaced. The newer systems work better and are cheap. I have seen great parts anywhere from $600-900.
  3. Couple small door dings here and there but minimal for its age, the car does get double and triple takes and people still stare while parked or at a red light.
  4. Lastly the car is a 1997, its not a brand new car or a $90,000 show car, this is car that is driven and can be daily driven. So please to lowball and don't waste my time or yours. Thanks
  5. Rear bumper was painted because it was Fading from the sun, 2 small quarter panels/vents aas well due to fading. Front Hood and Front Fenders repainted due to some neighborhood troubler makers egging the car and it damaging the paint permanently.
