Does anybody here own a Angola Prevost conversion ? I looking at one that has a blown 11.1 series 60 Detroit engine. I know they are just a basic conversion nothing fancy and I have contacted Penterra and Pharaoh but they are not much help so I need a owners view of the good,bad and ugly of the coach

Ken Arnold aka Hard Headed Ken here on the board has an Angola Prevost, but I'm pretty sure his came with an 8V92! (he did an amazing 60 series swap into it)

Can't help you, Clifford, but I sometimes wish that my Angola Coach conversion was done on a Prevost shell. . .

Can't fault the workmanship, tho, even if it is 1978 technology.

              Cliff You might try Florida Luxury Coach .Somewhere in the back of my mind I think they were involved with Angola on some level.Anyway,won't cost you anything but a P/C .

Look for a guy named Loc on the Prevost forums. He owned an Angola in the early 2000s.
