They say the old Toyota Coaster was great repowered with a Holden engine 186 or 202 I have heard about Toyota Coaster power with a Ford in-line 6 or Crossflow 6 or a 302 V8.

Here's one dating from 1960s.It was ex Riverside Bus service,Murray Bridge.

There was an article in "Custom Vans & Trucks" where they did an article on a Ford 351 Windsor into a Toyota Coaster,an 80s model.
There were kits available from Dellow Automotive in Sydney around the time.The article was in one of the last editions of the magazine.
