might be fun

"1975 10 window Bus has totally rebuilt motor has 3600 km on it 454 LS 7 400 Hp - drive line is totally redone, new brakes all around new drums on back end - also drive shafts re balanced hanger bearings u joints, also 2 speed axle - new Bridgestone Radial Tires 3500 km on them - interior also done to much to mention over $16,000 invested call or text for more info" - ( no question it will be a gas hog, but with the split rear end, it wouldn't hold up any Volkswagen vans on the hills - lol ) ( 3500 KM = approx 2200 miles ) - asking $5000 - tires and motor has to be worth more than that - 'corvette powered bus' - lol - it already has some of things done to it that I was thinking of doing, and more - haven't seen pictures of the interior yet, but I'm sure most of it will suit me fine as getting to where I'm going and back again is the important part of the journey

Would that 454 be high compression? I'm thinking so.
At fuel prices in BC for higher octane could be expensively thirsty for my blood. I heard low test is $1.72.9/L out here this week.

Might be worth a look though.
Good luck, know you want/need a gasser.

I'm certainly going to talk to them about it - I would rather it was a 366, but 400 HP also sounds good to me
