Thank you for sharing that. The price does not surprise as I've seen 100 point 23 window buses sell for over $100k by themselves.

Original 50 horsepower engine huh? 63 would have been a 40 horsepower single port, single carb engine. That one has dual Weber 44's on it and I will bet it is also a big bore. Also late model fuel pump and alternator. Definitely modified late engine.

Good catch Rick. I scrolled past all that to get to the auction price.

Not to mention the oil vapor return system, the Bugpack power pulley and oil fill and the header. The alternator means it was also converted to 12 volt.


And this is the quote above it, You got to love honesty in sales! N:( N:( :)rotflmao :)rotflmao :)rotflmao


There’s no funny business going on here. It’s got the original 50 bhp, four-cylinder engine.
