    Offered here is a 1951 Brill 35 ft passenger bus. Yes this bus is a runner and a driver. The short history on this bus is as follows. It was originally purchased by the Rockford Il airport and used as the transit bus for the EAA Museum. This is why the bus is littered with all of the old airline stickers and memorabilia. When the EAA decided to move to Appleton Wisconsin, they held an auction at the original location in Rockford. A close friend of mine purchased the bus, as there was no way he could pass up this piece of history. He removed many of the rear seats in the bus and layed down a dance floor in the rear. The front seats were turned towards each other and 2 tables were installed. The party bus was born. He used it for camping expeditions as well as parties for years to follow. The bus has made its way into Canada twice and the break waters once. In 2002, buried in work and business the bus started getting used less. He planned one last trip which ended in a blown oil line which destroyed the motor. Not wanting the bus to be scrapped, the motor was removed and rebuilt completely and back on the road again. To current date, the bus has seen a little over 900 miles from time of rebuild. I purchased the bus 3 months ago. After sitting for 2 years with no attention paid to it, we were able to fire it off and drive it out of storage ( stored inside the whole time my friend owned it). We barely made it home due to clogged fuel filters and a gummed up carb. We were able to easily find a rebuild kit for the carb and rebuild the whole unit. It is back up and running like a champ now. The engine is the very well known 450ci Red Diamond International gas motor. From what I have been told... this motor is worth pretty tall cash as it was used in many tractors and implements and is well known for being one of Internationals most reliable motors. The transmission is a 3spd manual which runs the bus down the road at 55mph. Since I have owned the bus, I have rebuilt the carb, changed the fuel filters a few times, replaced the fuel pump, changed the oil and worked on getting some of the lighting back up and working. There is still a ways to go to make it a reliable runner but for now it does run down the road. The air system works properly and the brakes work very well. I do know that the brake system was addressed when the bus was used on a regular basis and still seems to be in great working order. The horn, wipers, and many of the lights work but all systems should be gone over and cleaned. The tires all hold and maintain air pressure but are very old. All of the windows in the bus are the original windows which slide correctly and are not broke. All of the stationary glass is in good shape, but the windshield has 2 chips in it. They could probably be filled and fixed by a glass repair shop. In closing... I purchased 5 vehicles from the previous owner of this bus and wanted nothing to do with the 6th which was this Brill. To close the deal, He insisted that I purchase this as well. Now, I am glad that I had the opportunity to own a great piece of history and have enjoyed it immensely. With the large amount of vehicles I own, it is time for me to move on to the next project and let somebody else enjoy all that this bus has to offer. I am not selling this bus because I need the money or need the room. I am selling it because this bus deserves to be in the hands of someone who has a vision for what it can BE. Please feel free to contact Adam Kottke at 815 222 0644 with any questions. I am not totally knowledgeable on old busses but will do my best to assist in any way I can. Emails or text are ok as well. For those interested for any reason... I just ran the bus over the scales tonight on our nightly cruise and the bus weighs in at 12,740 pounds.
