Searching for the nebuchadnezzar

Hello All, I am new. My search continues for a suitable candidate for the transformation. So far I like everything I've read about the DT466, and I would really like to find one of these engines installed in a rear engine compartment. I'm thinking either 66 or 72. I'm building it for me and the Mrs and perhaps a couple of guest travelers so I'm not sure if 72 is really necessary, your thoughts please? Thanks everyone for all of the good thoughts and info here.

I would get the longest bus you can, ours is 35ft and I really would like the extra 5ft....next time I guess

I don't think you will find too much shorter than 35 foot in a pusher.

Apparently they're out there but I really don't want to go to Indiana for it, I'm in CT.

They are not as pretty as a Blue Bird.

Re: Searching for the nebuchadnezzar

Have an appointment on the 8th to look at a couple of 71 passenger Intl/Amtran, T444E engine, 2000 transmission, air brake buses. I really like the rear engine style bus so I'll concede on the DT466 if you kind folks endorse this model?
Thank you for your thoughts.
