Earlier model Autosleeper body showing signs of water ingress (e.g. around skylight opening) may turn out to be a marathon to fix if the frame timbers have rotted. Nice body though, better than many of its contemporaries for weekending and touring.

Converting a Vauxhall OHC engine for unleaded petrol (or LPG - much the same job) won't be cheap especially if all valve seats and guides need attention - expect to pay up to £350 just for machine shop work on the head.
