The Van has just under 100K miles on it, 5.9L 360CI V8, 3 speed Automatic, It runs and drives Excellent, The motor is strong, trans shifts nice, drives straight down the road, the brakes are solid, exhaust is quiet, Mechanically it is ready to go with recent service work done including timing chain, water pump, fuel pump, belts and hoses. It also has a fresh oil change and 5 brand new Firestone Tires. This is a very well taken care of unit.

The coach has seating for 6 and sleeping for 3. The rear is a permanent double bed with a brand new custom built foam mattress. I am 6' and can lay down in the back with comfortable room. It has a full water system with pump, fresh, grey and black water tanks. A 3 gallon Water heater that does not work and is currently bypassed, refrigerator, kitchen sink, 2 burner stove with exhaust fan, full wet bath with shower, toilet and small sink. The original propane furnace is there as well but it does not light. There is no roof top RV AC unit currently installed, but there is a roof vent.

The interior is in beautiful shape, it is clean and must/smell free. The cushions are in great shape with original material. All of the wood looks great with no water or use damage. The Shag carpet, (and there is a lot of it) is all very nice as well, no stains or bad odors involved, We did steam clean everything as well. It all is in incredible shape and very original for a 47 year old RV.

The exterior looks great as well. While it is not show room perfect, it is beautiful for being un-restored. The paint is original and very shiny. The chrome is nice and straight, the body is not all beat up. It does have some fading paint and imperfections here and there but it just adds to the character of this original unrestored unit. There was some fiberglass damage on the right rear corner of the vehicle that was repaired by our body shop, and it was fixed, repainted, and not even noticeable.

Problems with this unit is the cab AC is currently not working, we are going to recharge it with R12 and see if it comes to life but are not holding our breath that it will fix it. The gas gauge was working but it is now not. Most likely will need a new sender in the tank or a ground wire came disconnected. All of the other gauges work, as does the radio, heat, wipers, washers, cigarette lighter lights, turn signals, etc.

So overall it is an incredible time capsule of a Class B Camper van that is mechanically sound, and very usable as an RV, or take it to shows and show it off, Either way we hope this goes to a good home where it will be appreciated.
I am sure I am missing some things but please feel free to give me a call anytime at 616-318-0118 if you have further questions or want to see anything specific on this unit. I would be glad to help

Thanks for looking and happy bidding!
