Long Time No See... P20/P30 configuration options?

Hi... I have been quite busy the past few years trying to keep my business afloat and finally giving up to get my CDL and drive tractor-trailers over-the-road.

Those who followed the misadventures of the previous account/profile I had set up here know that I came into a GM P-chassis motorhome with a 6.2 diesel when I was forced to get rid of my Ford B700.

I still have this thing, and am exploring option on what to do with it, since the roof began leaking and it is ruined. The engine and running gear are extremely low-mileage and presumably reusable. Since smaller buses were built on the P-chassis, I was hoping someone on this forum might know exactly what I have based on what information I can give them.

I know it is a 1982 with a non-EGR 6.2 diesel. The block is painted red, which indicates the early, high-nickel block. Trans is a 3-speed auto (TH400 or TH475) and it is dual-rear-wheel with 16-inch wheels. I am guessing this is a P20, I believe the P30s came with 19s, or at least offered 19s as an option.

I am considering slapping a late-model cab on this chassis to re-use as a box truck, and knowing what differential/gears/transmission I have would be helpful.

Thanks in advance
