Muni Bus for Sale

Got a spare $12K laying around? If you do, check out this steal: a 1969 GMC Fishbowl New Look bus with a rad orange Muni paint job is up for auction on eBay. You read that right: There’s a Muni bus for sale. We’ve told you about New Look buses on Muni Time Capsule before. Check out that post if you’re thinking about making a bid.

This isn’t the first bus on sale — the guys at SFist spotted another bus for sale last year. We’ve also seen a Muni fare box for sale on Craigslist. If you’re the one who bought that fare box, why not buy a bus to keep it company? Or maybe this is perfect for the kind of person who’d buy a Muni shelter?

We’ll do our best to keep up with the auction and get in touch with the winning bidder.

  • Bring these buses back and get rid of the current ones!

    I think a few should be restored and put into regular service for the retro appeal. Bring back the 7 Haight and only use old, restored buses.

    I’m surprised that the gang at NorCal Bus Fans haven’t noticed yet. This might be right up their alley!vegsti

    Mmm, the 7 Haight was a trolley bus line, not a diesel…

    It is sad 2 see old vintage buses not getting the same public appeal as say streetcars, cable cars, or trains. If I had the room & money, I’d purchase it. It is a hobby though one needs a little deep pockets 4 though!

    There are efforts by SFMTA to restore a few more vintage buses though tempered of course based on donated money & volunteer time of the Muni Mechanics. Last heard the Mack & Nee Look Flixible are the next 2 in the restoration list! Hopefully by the next Heritage Weekend Festival we’ll get to see another vintage bus back in service!

    Sadly requirements for vintage bus service would be prohibitive due to ADA laws. I wonder how New York does it though during their Holiday Season service.
