FOR SALE: Want a 5-Ton Mega Monster Bus?

Carry yourself and 28 friends just about anywhere.

Who hasn't wanted a monster bus? Aside from parallel parking, we can't think of too many reasons to not have a 5-ton monster bus. Let's dig deeper.

This monster bus was seemingly built to transport crews around oilfields north of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada. You might be familiar with the 1994 Bluebird bus body and its capacity for moving people. Looking underneath, however, is where the fun begins.

Inside the monster bus, you'll find a 5.9L Cummins 6BT turbo diesel engine coupled with an Allison AT-545 automatic transmission. We assume it's the stock powertrain available on the Bluebird TC/2000 buses. There's also a two-speed transfer case with power takeoff capabilities to get power to all six wheels, and power additional implements.

Speaking of the wheels and tires on the monster bus, they're 49.5-inch Michelin XZL rubbers, commonly found underneath military tractors.

Underneath, there's the standard fare for 5-ton military trucks: the glorious Rockwell axles. Known to come with 6.44 gears and 2-inch-diameter axleshafts from the factory, these brawny hunks of hardware are ready for anything.

Interested in the monster bus? This could be a fine party barge for the next trip to the bud bogs, actually used to transport a crew of workers to hard-to-reach corners of the woods, or outfitted with the fixings of a modern RV. Your call. For now, here's where to place your bid: CLICK HERE
