Newbie looking at couple short busses

Hello all I'm Jeremy I live in yoop of Michigan.
I'm a veteran. Looking at a couple short busses with not many miles on them one is a 07 with international motor Allison tranny with brake sensor issue in transmission not sure about fix. The other one is a gasser with a 496 big block thinking about same year needs some brake line repair. Both less than 70000 miles. Any input? Thanks

I think I'd avoid both. The 496 is likely to guzzle gas on the road - in the 4-5 MPG range. The 07 IH trans/brake interlock issue is known for these buses and has been a *VERY* difficult and expensive repair for those who have had it.

I was trying to research brake interlock but can't find much on it. Is it actually a sensor or something more of a pain? We got tools and a place to work on it. Thanks
