Tailgate special: 1990 party bus


It’s billed as the “ultimate party bus,” and it’s wrapped to celebrate the Houston Texans of the National Football League, but there are other options for the Pick of the Day, a 1990 International SS-29 bus.

For example, for around $5,000, the specialist dealership advertising the bus on ClassicCars.com notes, you can wrap the bus in the colors of your favorite team.

Or perhaps you’re not looking to party but to transport as many as 13 people to church or other events, or to carry your youth baseball or other sports teams.

The dealership also shares the vehicle’s history:

“The previous owner started out with a very clean Model SS-29 bus purchased in 2004 that had apprx 165k miles on it. He then poured a ton of money into it over his 13-year ownership. 

“Features include, V8 diesel powerplant, automatic, power steering and brakes, RWD, dual rear wheels, 3 overhead A/C units, sat DVD, 2 generators, 2 refrigerators, restroom w/ sink, pass side awning (US flag), seating for 13 (incl driver), reclining Prevost seats, custom headrests, diamond-plated floors, interior TV, large side-mounted TV, elaborate stereo system w/ concert-level speakers, train horns, large rear-mounted BBQ pit, and 6 new Roadmaster 10r 22.5 tires.”
