I got a vin number, and know its 2006 INTERNATIONAL 30 Passenger School Bus. 7 window Mini Bus with a handicap ramp,

I believe that traditional mini buses dont have an internal height greater than 6 feet, but I have heard that some can be more? I'm trying to NOT raise the roof but would like to stand up inside, 6'2 is my height.
I think Cowlitzcoach is right about the ceiling height if it's an IC Coach, given the model year. I'm more familiar with last century's buses

Even if your able to stand, Scrubbing your head on a roof gives the bus a much smaller feel.

Agreed. I can stand (pardon the pun) my low ceiling for what little time I've walked around the interior (I'm just getting into my project). My '76 Wayne is about 6' 1" at the center aisle and I can add a foot of headroom without scraping bridge overpasses. Less claustrophobic that way.

No one thread containing them all.

Threads discussing roof raises are a waste of your time.

The real gold of info is in the build threads.

Pictures and real life doing it.

There are a few in the process of their roof raise
