Remember under that aluminium is a steel frame like all other buses that rusts just the same. Sometimes the aluminum can be hiding things, but you have that risk with any cladding.

To answer your question you can add YMT and YNT bedfords to your list. I'm currently converting a YMT, was a railway service vehicle and has been fitted with a V8 Cat Diesel.

Also remember that if there is any contact between the aluminium and steel that you WILL get a galvanic reaction. This causes corrosion of the aluminium and subsequent bubbling etc. Make specially sure any repairs or modifications have had a rubber strip or copious quantities of sealer installed between the two different materials.
