looking into purchasing bus need help

Found a 1992 bluebird 30 passenger bus sitting outside a house. Does anyone have experience with this type of bus that can give me info? I searched for info on it while i was there personally but couldn't find anything. Only thing i found was Body number, capacity, model year, axle number. Nothing on engine size or length of bus. Title said it weighs 14,400 lbs. Would like to know how to find out what engine and transmission it has. I have a video of walk around and glimpse of engine if that helps but don't know how to upload it on here.

If you've got the VIN number you can at least get the engine from that on the Gates VIN decoder. https://www.gates.com/us/en/ymm/search/landing/vin


Not sure if you can get the transmission that way though.
