reliable make and model Mini Bus with 6 foot 6 clearance

I'm 6-3 and researching these short buses in some ways I'd rather have an older one that is carbureted seems like it's easier to work on but probably more realistically will find one in the early 2000s I've been eyeballing the GMC's and some of the Fords my friends 2001 GMC box truck radiator just blew and it's a real pain to change out for something with decent head clearance what do you guys recommend generally GMC or Ford or is there a specific model people tend to go for thanks in advance

Year: 2006
Coachwork: Collins
Chassis: Chevrolet Express 3500
Engine: Duramax
I don't think the chassis itself makes a difference for this. I do know that Collins does tend to offer more interior height. Both of the ones I've had offer ~6'4" in the center and a flatter roof profile than other brands.

Also, I know everyone has their preferences, but I would go for a 2003+ Chevy/GMC or a 2001-2003 Ford from Collins. Just be aware the 7.3L in the Fords is louder than the GM options
