WTB: <1995 ~30ft flat-nose, w/ DT466 + MT643

I've been lurking for more than a year now and just can't seem to find 'the one'. I'm hunting for a +/- 11 window, flat nosed bus with an all-mechanical DT466 and a MT643 trans. Closest I've come in months is this.

Anyone with a bus for sale or leads? Thanks a million.

thomas made a bunch of 8 and 9 row short flat-nose busses in the mid - late 90s.. I see them on bus-dealer sites all the time.. but you'll pay a bunch for those on a dealer site.. seems they commnd a premium for some reason... not sure why..

Maybe because those specs make the perfect bus?
I'll keep my eyes peeled. Thanks!

FWIW, any DT466 younger than about 1995 will have the DT466e electronic engine with the HEUI system.

Other than that minor gotcha, I like your shopping list and will keep an eye out for ya.

$5400 would be a dream for some of the prices i see.. now these are much newer busses and they are cats and look really clean but are also Spendy!!

Correct, although mechanical engines were making their way into school buses until as late as 1998.
The 96-up NGD's were available with mechanical injection for a while. They can be spotted by their having a mechanical pump but the "e" style intake manifold/valve cover.

That's why I put <1995 in the title but now I realize that it could be read either way. Whoops

I have a 95 international with the t444 in it, so does that mean it's all mechanical or could be either. Sorry just bought it a couple weeks ago
