I like the 4106 better than any other, they drive like a dream and are very fast, also I got better mileage as well, 12 to 14, and I have ran the speedometer off the end. also the body has no hump so clearance is nice. it has a 318 and is a great engine. just my two cents.

I know of a local H8H649 with standard trans. removed interior. Been sitting for some time . Could most likely get a good deal on it. In central Pa.

Thanks for lead Chessie.  I think for this project it'll need to have an auto tranny.  I'm still looking, I'm sure there's one out there somewhere!

I agree!  The 4106 is a great driving coach, great power, handles well, it does everything really, really well.  I love driving mine!

Have you by chance put your coach on a chassis dyno to see what kind of wheel HP it's putting out since you rebuilt it?

FWIW & HTH. . .
