|Years of manufacture||? to ?|
The Commercial Body Builders Tundra was a small cutaway type bus built on the Ford E-350 and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 chassis. The body consists of an all-aluminum frame with aluminum panels that are digitally, pulse-welded into place. An unknown number of Tundras were built on Ford chassis, while a single example was built on a Mercedes chassis as a prototype in 2007. The Mercedes-based Tundra was later sold to BC Transit.
Unlike the Ford-based Tundra, which replaces the passenger side of the van chassis' cab with a door and entryway, the Mercedes-based Tundra retained the van chassis' entire cab, with the passenger compartment's door and entryway positioned behind the front passenger door and seat.
