School bus bodies within a given year range are sized according to standards (which change every so often). Since it's only three years older than my 66-pass. Dodge/Wayne, I can tell you that you'd get about 25 feet behind the driver. Sixty-six was the top capacity for most conventional ("dog-nose") buses of the era. I don't know when they started building longer ones: the one I drive on my job is a 72-pass. conventional Blue Bird, 2014 model.
If money is your top priority, I agree with EastCoast and Tango. (I may get a Cummins for mine down the road.) If you have your heart set on that specific bus, well, that's a much more devilish thing to quantify for value.
