here's a professional opinion... and yes for free..so put your own value here..
I would steer away from a coach with a ford 460...they have a bad head design which is prone to manifold leaks/broken bolts / and busted heads...
the problem is so bad we refuse to work on them at our shop..
they depleted the head supply and for a time all you could get if replacement motors
the egr system is an other time bomb...
there are so many of these with exhaust leaks that the old timmers just can't hear
I'm batting 1000 on finding the leaks and broke off in the head manifold bolts so far....
