At least I think so.
Are you going to strip it down or use it?
I think an earlier post sayed it had a 454 with 14 bolt rear th400, did it also have an overdrive?
454, TH400, 14-bolt rear. No overdrive. Came to $723. Wasn't supposed to spend the money on this, but I'm immediately yanking the 16" rims off and the generator to try and sell them real quick to get money back.
I have some split rims to throw back on to keep it mobile for now. Next year the motor will come out and get a different cam and gaskets and probably go into my Suburban, and I'll sell the 2wd TH400, and the hulk will join the other motorhome and campers/trailers at my place.
Hell you could probably cut it down behind the door build a new wall and use it as a hauler/sleeper.
Didn't you rip your last one apart and go tearing through some mud pits?
I thought about doing that with the last one...
But we did that instead.
Dude, lift it and convert it to 4WD. I could see it with a 4" or even 6" lift and 35's.
My "good" motorhome I use and stay in has a solid front end and leaf springs. This one and the other Chevy chassis one are independant fronts, so it would be a major project.
On my good Chrysler powered one, I could probably bolt in a Dually Dana 60 4.56 front, and add blocks to the rear to make it sit level, and a divorced dodge 205. The rear in it now is a Dana 70 Dually with 4.56s. But if I lift it at all, it won't fit under the shed anymore.
Had the same problem when my grandfather wanted a bigger boat. We raised the shed
That's what I thought >:P
That thing is dying for the shark style rattle can makeover.
It's going to get a face like this one: http://www.mountainexplorers.50megs.com/images/scary_motorhome2.jpg
And what do you suppose an older generator like this is worth?
