Hello with 86 Chevy Bus Questions

HI, my name's Nick and I'm tossing around the idea of a skoolie and can use some help if you mind. I'm still in school and trying to do everything and anything... thus why the multi thought process

So I found this... and was told it has 46k... maybe 146k/ 246k... rear brakes are off and they want $1500 (thoughts)

From what I'm reading it should be a 5.7 if a Gasser (what should I expect gas mpg) or Detroit if diesel?, the cross member is where I need to check for sagging) (have no idea what is under the wood)... and it should have rear drum brakes (they aren't together right now) so any guidance on this/ thoughts on easiness to fix issues/common issues? I do have a tech background just never on buses....

I am needing something for towing/scrapping but I've always loved the idea of a skoolie... so I'm wondering if I could get this vrs a truck/boxtruck/trailer and use it for a bit to scrap out of and then use as my tow vehicle for a trailer..... *does it take a normal K/ hitch from the time period?*

Thank you for your thoughts
