Fell in love with the interior myself but donít know much beyond that! Let me know ASAP please!

If you've got the mindset and patience to maintain a "classic" then it's a cool bus. It should have a DD 6-71 which is a well known engine used in everything from buses to airplanes to boats to tanks and has a reputation of being reliable. It's a steep price compared to what most of us spent on a newer/more modern bus, but if it's what you're into and you're mechanically inclined enough to deal with with it then it looks pretty cool!

That is a good price for that beast! I am contemplating something similar.
