I'm thinking of buying an older, well really old, wanderlodge - 1965. Should I be suspect of the Ford Industrial Engines (Compared to the later diesel engine)? I imagine the diesels last much longer. ANYTHING helps.

Thanks, Kirk

We are riding in a 1960 Blue Bird bus conversion with Ford engine and she's still doing fine. We have no idea how many miles on it - as 4th owners we inherited a lot of broken bits including odometer and not much history - unable to contact man who originally did the conversion in the '60's but we love her and intend to keep her going if we can. We would appreciate it if you would share any thing you learn about these old babes and we'll do the same

My "68" is the Ford and from what I hear are very
reliable. The other + is parts are available at most
autoparts for most things that could cause problems.
Gas is cheaper than Diesel too. (really wrong..)
But up hills, I get out front and jog and my wife
drafts me to the top.
