VIN would help determine what it is. Did the listing say "T2(NOT TC2000)"?
I think it is an uninformed seller.
Stats show that engine was not available as an option after 98, nor was the 3060, 643 was the exclusive trans in the RE in 99.

Pros: Big engine, good transmission type, likely can cruise and climb well, not loaded with emissions controls like 2004+. So far, so good.

Potential Cons: Need to look at tires (check date codes) and climb around looking for rust. How far away from you, where is the bus (as in, "rust state" or not), and what do they want for it?

Others will add better advice, but this might help get you started.

Unless you have really deep pockets or just like throwing money away, run from that bus. Do some more research here and you'll find that any bus before 2004 regardless of trans or engine can be had for less than $4k. There is nothing on that $12k bus that you wouldn't get from the same auction the guy trying to sell it to you paid $3k for it.

www.govdeals.com is how many here get their buses. They currently have a dozen in Georgia, though many have either Cat engines (expensive when they need repair) or T444s (not as much power).

Use Gates VIN decoder to see what engine a bus has (click on the 'details' link and it will also tell you if the bus has air brakes).
