Oh what fun this would be to make into a live in step van. On Craigslist here . (It has been removed from Craigslist. Probably sold.)
Only 77,000 miles, gas engine, only 10′ long, no re-painting to do, put $2,000 worth of investment in greasing and checking and repairing and venting. Manual transmission.
The only thing it lacks for me is 4wd.
But that looks like a yummy deal at $6,500.
There is a place that does just vintage step vans … https://www.classicstepvans.com/
I will still go with the truck with a shell, but darn, I love the idea of a step van.
