    2 lost GMC earlies I found

    I found these 2 vans today, no clue they were there. A 64 & a 65, need to wait till it dries up to crawl around & check them out better. Not sure how much he wants but I'm guessing not much as he has no plans other than to use them for storage. Click image for larger version.

    No, they both have side doors with no windows in door. The green one has some kind of butchered side windows that were put in. The only windows are the front doors & rear doors.
    They look to be in decent shape. I'll have to wait until it dries up a bit to crawl around and check them out more.

    If you can pull them out of where they are sitting they are worth saving.......

    Nice find. I wonder why they were just abandoned like that.

    Usually because they broke down, and got shoved out of the way.


    There was a heating and cooling company down the road from me that had a 2nd gen that sat in the back corner of their lot for over 20 years. I tried to buy it, but the owner was using it for storage. One day I saw it being hauled away by the scrap man, the entire floor had rotted and fallen out.

    Yeah, you should restore them because the cars are in pretty good shape and can be put in further use.

    These vans looks in pretty bad condition. I think someone left Agoc Travel a long time ago. You can restore these vans and they can be of good use. After restoring they would look fantastic. It would be best if i could buy them.

    I've scooped the green one but the white one is still there. Let me know if you want it & I'll buy it & bring it to my place then you can come & get it.
