I have pictures and a good write up started on this and it will be pretty well documented.

This sounds extremely promising! Looking forward to hearing more about it. Since the 3.1 liter engines in 388, 404, & 460 all got blowed up, it's nice to have another alternative showing up.

Right now I think the only big bore engine still in a running UltraVan is Chuck's new 3.0 liter.  #292 also has a 3.0 liter but has been parked for many years.

My #500 used to have the convertible dinette:

I no longer have these benches though, I traded them to Craig to use on UV001.

Also, if you have the bookcase with swing up table floorplan (not sure from the pics of #277 that I've seen), then they wouldn't fit anyway. I don't think I have ever seen a bookcase layout with any kind of convertible bed. There were folding chairs available from the factory for this layout, but they didn't fold into anything, they just folded for storage.

I just purchased 277 and it does not have any dining chairs. I was told that there are chairs that fold out into a bed. Does anyone have a picture of theirs so I can try to reproduce them?

Thanks,
Jon Fisher

Hi All!

My name is Jon Fisher and I recently purchased 277. I have Dan Shelby (previous owner of 364) working hard on restoring it. Restoration plans include rebuilding the engine and transmission, installing new brakes, replacing and securing the suspension and interior work. Can't wait to hit the road!
