wondering info on GMC 8.2 liter in a 1990 thomas bus

Wondering anybodys thoughts as to what this bus is worth and some horsepower figures,concerns for this particular make,.....etc. 1990 Thomas school bus,100,000 miles on a GMC 8.2 Liter diesel motor. Allison 545 Automatic tranny.

anybody know how much this setup would be able to tow? are we talking a 4-place snowmobile trailer, a 22 footboat? maybe both at once! ha....any thoughts or comments would be appreciated. Thank you
