That seemed strange to me also. It could be the fly in the ointment. I've done several engine and drivetrain retrofits in classic vehicles and have seen many more. It can be done very eloquently and reliable or an unmaintainable mess.

Easy to torch these engines if you don't know how to operate them.

Diesel pushers are rare. Last year four were on the market and sold. The one in California for 100k, shinned up solar, inverter. One in the south east for 70k, reupholstered and custom tile. Other two were stock, but didn't get the final prices. With only 27, four on the forum, and those four, plus this one that leaves 18, assuming more are not rotting.

I think a lot of it is hype with regard to the price. However for this particular one I would offer 10k with the statement. "I will offer you 10k, and can have it to you this weekend." Then I would order a Cummins 6BT crate engine. Get good same towing. Then you have option 1: find reputable mechanic, or option 2: bring your tools to install yourself. Then you could have an aesthetically "meh" diesel pusher for around 20k... the exterior aesthetics could be taken care of with about 40hrs of prep time and some clear coat except the vinyl pinstriping. That would require a removal and re-application. I would suggest removing, and then coming up with a custom one.

I was toying with the idea of buying that classic pusher and renovating it to sell today. Realizing I had no time to do so, was the sobering part, but while I was looking at the advertisement on craigslist, I did notice it is missing all the small awning options.

Also very concerned there are no interior shots. Based on the outer delamination from what I can only assume is the Arizona sun, I would expect the following:
1. Faded interior
2. Sun damaged woodwork
3. Drooping ceiling vinyl
4. loose mouse fur

Overall this could be a great find, but without the interior pictures and time to work on it, I passed on this very bad, yet fun idea.

as u can see by the pics #1 cylinder is the problem head is off and needs redone valve seats and valves on # 1 it was overheated interior is very nice tire are 3 years old 27 airstream classic diesels made leatherette headliner thruout 60k miles open to offer call if interested

I need another project like I need....

I'm betting the engine damage is beyond what can be done in the chassis to yield a reliable engine. If it spent its life in Arizona it could be very clean from a corrosion and rot standpoint.

I see engine deals like this one all the time. Just something to ponder. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1996-Cummins...d=321444333629
