    The paint is a little curious in the door jambs. Hard to tell from a couple photos, but it looks like it may have been painted over nearly blistering rust. Still a nice van. Asking price is a bit...

    I have no production info on Canadian-built vans, but the US production numbers I have show that some were exported to Canada. I'm interested to learn where they were built, in Canada.
