V drive or T-drive setup in rear?

Manual or power steering?

Route55,
I believe it would be considered a v drive.
The front of the engine faces the rear of the bus with the transmission in front of it.
Manual steering, but it steers very easy!
Hope this helps.

That is actually a T-drive, which is a "conventional" layout, only mounted backwards. In vintage busses this is a more desireable setup, as automatic swaps, and engine work, are much easier. A V-drive setup has the engine sideways in the back with an angled transmission, special angled rear differential, and is tight to work on like a front wheel drive car.

Desire. It would be a little large to tow my car to the races with.

Bones, you need this. Mount a disco ball, add some wood floors and shag carpet walls...

That would be a nice hauler for your sidexside. Lots of extra room for when it rains. I really like that thing but just not in my budget.
