great info from all, thanks much!
regarding length, and this could apply to all busses
do wheel bases stay the same? and the manufacturer just chops off the rear of the body or do they build on a shorter frame/driveline?
the info on the ride is helping plan the floor plan and where to put the weight. thanks
also, is length measured bumper to bumper? same for dognoeses?
now, i just have to find one

Check out this bus I just stumbled across on ebay.

It's a front engine flat front bus like a TC2000 but it has the DT466 & allison MT643 trans which I've read (on this site) is a good combo. Also looking at the pics it must have air brakes.

I have never seen a Ward type-c bus before ANYWHERE. I like it a lot.....looks really nice and with that combo, you can't go wrong. If I had the money I'd jump all over that. Of course I would expect the price to go up signifigantly in the next few days, but I will be keeping my eyes on that one. The only scary thing about it is that transit usually means low (numberically high) gears which wouldn't be so hot on the highway, but the locking TC should make up for that somewhat.

Also....where are you seeing the air brakes? I don't see the universal yellow p-brake knob, but I'm really quite blind sometimes. I'm sure it has them, but I can't see that stupid knob.

It's just to the left of the shifter, also the brake pedal is huge.

I also found this bus, but I'm thinking it will go for quite a bit.
