Time for me to move onto another project. This one has been fun and reliable. I absolutely love the styling, versatility, comfort, and appearance, but I’m considering focusing on other projects and/or resto-modding a 30’s pick-up. I purchased this van sight-unseen from the previous owner in Arizona December 2015. Had it dropped off at a friend’s house in Tempe, Arizona soon after. During my spring break (I am a High School Auto Tech instructor) I flew down with a friend with tools and parts. Our goal was to safely make the trip from Arizona to NJ. When I arrived in AZ, the van fired right up, as it does every time I get in! In preparation for the trip, we serviced the cooling system, the brakes, and the steering and suspension (including good tires). We had a hiccup with the steering box giving out while crossing through Missouri, so we picked one up in Arkansas, popped it in and continued all the way to NJ. No over-heating, no misfiring, no fuss.
     Since I’ve had it here in NJ, I’ve gone through just about all of it with a fine toothed comb. I only have one thing that’s left to be done: Rear Leaf springs. I was debating lowering the van, which would require lowering springs, getting the front axle dropped and also notching the rear of the floor to clear the top of the rear axle. I’ve held off doing it due to my lack of time. Maybe the next owner will follow through with a suspension drop or just install new leaf springs in the rear (easiest option).
      I daily drove the car for about 6-7 months while I was working on it, and would take it out every weekend for my enjoyment since. I’ve put roughly 6-7k miles on the car with most of the repairs having been performed within the last 4k miles. I park it indoors during the winters and freshen it up every spring. I am a motivated seller. You will receive my spares as well.

Known History of Car:
      According to the previous owner, the car was originally from Rhode Island. It was found next to a shed where it had been parked under tarps. The surface rust on the roof bears evidence of the tarps holding moisture against it over the years. Story has it that a young man purchased it brand new, piled on the miles. He enlisted in the Army and was going to be shipped off to Vietnam, so he parked the van. Sadly he never returned and the van sat until some guys from CT purchased it and put it back on the road. The PO purchased it from these fellas, drove it to AZ, met his girl and they lived out of it for 6-months. I purchased it and picked it up in AZ and drove it back to NJ.
