1996 Ford B800 Bus

Hi all,
Im looking at trying this again and have eyes on a 1996 Ford B800 bus. Does anyone have a general idea what transmission it may have? Its automatic, has a column shifter displaying R N D 3 2 1 mated to a 5.9 cummins. Bluebird chassis.

Engine: cummins 12 valve

transmission

two ways I can think of...

get under the bus and look and take pictures and work to identify. might even be a tag on the transmission. from the shifter ... i would assume it is a four speed of some kind.


take the chassis serial number, not the bus serial number, the one that ford attached to the chassis when it rolled off the assembly line. go to ford dealer and see what was in the bus when it rolled off the line
