i recently looked at a 64'greenbriar van.
it had a stove,sink, etc. etc.
900.00 with 2 extra egines and 5 extra doors.
is this a good deal and how much can i expect to pay to get on the road ?

Hard question to answer without seeing....
Does it run now?
How long has it been since it did run?
How rusted/dented is the body?
What are your expectations for the van?
How much money do you have to spend?
Do you have mechanical skills?
If nothing else the doors alone are worth $50.00 each if they are in decent shape, if the motors are complete and not locked up you have a good start on rebuilding one to install.
Any pictures, where is it located?

the other thing to consider is how bad do you realy want a corvan.if thats your van of choice,its restorable,and you have the money,
id say go for it.if your just in the market for an old van,you might wanna concider a dodge,ford or(my van of choice : ) ,the 64-70 chevy vans.the reason i say that is cause you have more parts options.witch can be realy frustrating at times and ruin the fun of having an old van in the first place.
if youve driven the old corvans(or any of the old vans)and you like the way they drive,
handle andvave fun with it,than id say go for it.......as far as how much it will cost to get it on the road....your gonna have to call mrs cleo on that one LOL
good luck,have fun
