Ford c series combos

I was wondering what kind of engine,transmissions,brakes,axles,wheel bases could one have with their C? I would love to find a very short wheelbase dump truck with a gas engine,(CARB and their diesel crap) automatic transmission,air brakes, be heavy duty but be right at 26k lbs so I wouldn't have to get a class B license(medical reasons,I would get my class b in a heartbeat if I could!) and on top of that which engine and transmission combination would be best for my thoughts?

They were a 4 speed with a low tho!
started low then 1 2 3 4
Bigger trucks had another transmission,
you shifted L1234, then shifted the 2nd trans into 2, first trans back to L,1234. that was a 10 spd
15 spd had a 3 speed aux trans. there were also 13 and 20 speeds.

there was also a 2 speed rear.......
