Van was built by GM and shipped to california to be coverted to a campervan that sleeps 6. 8 were built the first year 1965. I use it to sleep in at the races. I am a crew member of Ron Cole's Glory Dazed Nostalgia Funny Car. Traded a worn out Astro van for it. Motor is from a evenrude inboard that got a V8 swapped in. Added a Turbo 350 and tall rear gears to keep mileage up. (26 mpg loaded with gear)Astro was worth about $1100.00, Since then I've spent about $400.00 on installing engine,trans, third member,brakes,and adding a power reclining bed/couch, A third swivel captains chair, and a table. Total cost with a full tank of gas around $1650.00 How am I doing?
