||I found an old hippie bus that's a 1955 Superior Coach. It's impounded and I could get it for a good deal (about $500). It's a flat nose rear engine, the engine runs well, but the brakes need replaceing. It's got air brakes but was made before they were fail safe, so I would need to upgrade that to a fail-safe system, any ideas on cost or difficulty on doing that? I have no clue what kind of motor, best guess is about a 550cu in something (gas) and it has a manual trans. Any ideas on the probability of the project would be appriciated.
BTW, the plan would be to do a simple conversion (beds/couches) so I could gather up a bunch of buddies and go on some adventure (College), so nothing too fancy.
