The movie was apparently only shot in Mexico. So a Dina bus seems indeed to be logical. But did this make use US bodies, as supcoach's identification suggests it? Could it be a used US bus imported to Mexico, all the more as all filming location are in the Baja California, near (when not on) the Mexican-US border?

If the Dina make is used here, all bus identified as made on the Dina 500/600 basis (Mexican built IHC Loadstar) are for now identified as Dina Capre or Dina Capre Conventional in the IMCDb (except this one). But as Capre seems to be a coachbuilder, it should certainly only appear as complement?

In Mexico, in addition to yellow school buses seen from the United States, various other types of buses are used in the role of student transport. As in the United States, many schools own their own fleets of school buses; school bus yellow is not a government regulation, so most buses are painted in individual school colors. Depending on capacity needs, vans, minibuses, and midibuses are also used. Among retired American school buses, some newer ones are imported into Mexico and put back into school service.

Based on the above statement-and the fact that it is/was yellow originally-it was a former USA school bus imported into Mexico< I still say International Harvester Loadstar - Superior Coach..
