Talking 1973 oldsmobile revcon

I am astounded that i came across this treasure and hope that with the help of you all, i can restore it to its former glory.

Also, its got the 455 rocket and ive got it to run and it is smooooooth
I suppose that we should begin at the most pressing matter, there is no brake booster. I have tried the 1973 olds toronado booster and its arm is more than half a foot too short and the bolt holes dont match up. Anyone know where i can find this thing? It appears that this is an issue with these revcons, finding parts.

Also, its got the 455 rocket and ive got it to run and it is smooooooth

It would help is we knew what the car is. Is it a Cutlass, 442, Delta 88 or a 98? It should not be a problem finding a booster.

Ok, so revcon is a motor home using the toranado drive train. The stepson of the airstream guy invented this lineup of motor home. I came across this old link listing some suppliers and owners.

I'm going to guess this vehicle uses some custom and propriety parts. The booster is probably the easy one, but the rod a little more challenging to find. Hope someone can be of help to you, there is going to be some homework on this one.

I remember the motor homes and always thought they were cool. I guess I would never have considered them an Oldsmobile although they were Oldsmobile powered. Good luck with your search.

Well i do happen to have the rod still, is there a good chance i can get one that bolts up and use the old arm? Are these brake boosters relatively possible to rebuild?
