As has been mentioned already, when new, a front engine dog nose bus with a 5.9 cummins and a AT545 trans cost over $40,000 less than the HDT rear engine flat nose bus with a Cummins 8.3 and MD3060.
So $2000 for a old TC 2000 with the basic engine and trans, would make the big bus with the best of everything cost $6000 and up.
I would have no issue paying up to $10,000 for a nearly perfect bus with the best of everything.

Are you made of money?
If not you best skip the Cat engines and the Detroit's.
Cost wise the Cummins and the DT engines rule the fleet.
