Don't know what drive train you're looking for, but this one was an activity bus in North Carolina, should be pretty free of rust.

To save you the trouble of researching, because I already have on this one, it's an AT545 transmission.

545's are a fact of life for most of the good shorties. Mine has one. It is what it is.
Hard to find a pre-2003 with anything other than a 545.

That NC bus looks great - is the age a consideration? How would you go about checking it out from a long distance away?

Something to thoroughly check on before considering a NC bus is the gearing. MANY NC buses are geared/governed for 45-50 mph.

The slow speeds aren't such a concern for me. NC is below the rust belt, too. How's that International 3700 model for dependability and repairability?
