    "Pro-pain" conversion?

    Why would you convert a car like this to propane? What kind of mileage does it get? I guess the better question is, how often do you have to refill the tank?

    Is that “new interior” correct? With that engine bay, the special little details on the paint, and the happy hands at home “pro-pain” conversion, I think I’d be tempted to move on were I looking for one of these. Pro pain seems to describe the effort to redo the handy work.

    Not factory correct at all.

    The propane conversion doesn't worry me ( gas prices in BC are nasty), but the surface rust on the firewall plus the door jambs and inside of the front fenders are different colours make me want to closely look at this car on a lift if I were interested in it.

    That's roughly $6.53 US gal.

    Propane has been a popular commercial conversion in canada since the late 70’s.
