Default 96 on Ebay, $62

Here is a 96 on Ebay, $62,500, could be a good buy. Pictures look good.
I thought I had seen this coach mentioned on WOG, but could not find the thread.
One thing I noticed, surprised me,, it has a 470HP. I thought all 96 were 500hp?
When did the 60S 500Hp start?

Mallie forgot to post the link. Here it is:

Perhaps it is 470 hp because the engine has been changed out? (It has been) Although that one looks like a later model than 96, so I would imagine it is 500 hp and the seller is confused. But hey, what do I know?

According to the engine tag on our 96, our S60 is 475hp. It is the original engine.
I understood that 96 was a changeover year. Some had the 8v and some had the S60.

I think the 40 footer in 95, 96 and maybe some 97, had the 8V92 while the 42/43 footers had the 60 series.

Essentially correct. The 40 footers had the 8v92 .. officially they were all 95s, though some may have been sold in 96. The 42/43 foot coaches all measured 42 feet 6 inches. The 43 designation was given to those that had the lower mount on the engine (that allowed for the walk-in closet).

The S-60 in 95 and 96 was rated at 470 HP. Later changes to the computer allowed the HP to be upgraded to 500 in newer coaches. (Not sure of the year that happened.) If an older bird with an S-60 had an upgraded engine computer, presumably it could be rated at 500 HP, though I doubt that the 30 HP difference would be noticeable. Since a computer upgrade would be very expensive, I doubt it was done on any coach unless there was a serious problem with the OEM computer.

Since the S-60 was an inline 6 cyl design, it was longer than the V-8 design used in the 8v series engines. Therefore, the coach was lengthened to accommodate the new engine. Some of the length was added in front of the rear axle and some was added to the rear overhang. The longer coach also allowed all tanks and plumbing to be in the basement area, eliminating the water tanks under the bed. (Instead, a huge storage space was created by raising the mattress (on air springs).)
