short blue bird

our local school district has 2 or 3 of these 3/4 sized blue bird buses. they are flat nosed simualar to the tc 2000 model only they are probably 27 or 28 feet long.they also sit up off the ground (high ground clearance) fairly high. they are not 4x4. they look like they would make good rough terraine runners. do any of you blue bird fans know what model these b.b. s are ???

19.5" wheels (should have 265/70R19.5G tires) & a flat floor probably means a TC1000. Expect a 5.9 Cummins (probably 175HP) & an AT500 or 545 Allison slushpump. I've never seen one without air brakes & rear air suspension.

Rear air suspension. Man that'd be nice
