What is my bus?

I am completely new to this scene and I don't know how to "describe" my bus . I've heard/read terminology like "international" and "bluebird" thrown around but have no clue what that means. I believe I have a Ford E350 Super Duty Diesel engine, in a short bus built by Thomas. So, my question is, if you had my bus and someone asked you what you have...how would you answer? I've attached photos that hopefully will help you identify what it is. I can take more specific photos if necessary.

The effort here was to figure out what engine you have.

It's certainly a cutaway bus and an E-350 super duty diesel. I'm not familiar with the Ford cutaways.
