Default 1971 SP 35 has arrived at the warehouse!

My buddy Rodney showed up here at 10am with my new to me 1971 SP on his landoll.
We stared the coach up and drove it off the trailer,and i drove it around the block!
Its a 534 ford,runs great,and sounds better!
It has twice pipes (dual exhaust) with glass pacs and a Holley Projection fuel injection system,and electronic ignition.

The exterior paint is flaking some around the rivets,but the inside is awesome!
It has the blue box,and all kinds of records and notes from the owner.
It was bought by the last owner in 1975 from Custom Coach Corp. for $40,000.
I have the sales contract!
Theres all kinds of spare parts and the bed was made and it even has pillows on the bed.

The shower is small,but i can stand u in it just fine,the ceiling is tall enough that my head clears and it has quite a bit of storage.

I have plans to install an 8.3 Cummins engine and 3000 sries Allison transmission.
This will be a cool bus with diesel power!!!!

I'd like to see pictures of that fuel injection system and exhaust. Wonder how a 531 Ford would do in a drop tank or early Fiat?

Not much to see there. Is it a large aluminum body with a single butterfly? Could it be a Ron's system? Is there a large cog belt driven fuel pump?

no,i have a Rons system i ran on the fiat.
This looks like a GM car system,early 90's stuff.
It has an electric fuel pump,and nozzles in the throttle body.
The air filter is big,but it has a 3'' hose going to a 3'' hole in the side of the coach,with a small scoop.
3'' intake for a 534ci engine?
