    Several longtime members of our club are also members of Hy-Rollin Vans. They are very active in the vanner community and a great bunch of people.

    Hello,
    if you’ve read my other posts/threads, not only am I new to vanning but I’m also a newbie to Facebook. Never had a need for it. I’m trying to join the group Hy-rollin vans. When I click “join group” the only option it offers is to “cancel join request”. There’s nothing that says “welcome” or “thanks for joining”. Is there a wait time for approval? Is there some sort of screening process? Thanks g10guy.

    Also when trying to click on the pic of the van it says:


    The page you requested cannot be displayed right now. It may be temporarily unavailable, the link you clicked on may be broken or expired, or you may not have permission to views this page.

    Suggestions?
    thanks much,

    Hy Rollin vans is a closed group, you need to await approval before you can do anything there. No, I'm not a member of that group, so I don't know if it's only for actual club members.

    Question

    Hi,
    I actually found this Facebook group via another van site.
    After searching on vcvc I found this same van again(video) in earlies. Also in another thread in earlies I found the van again(of pics)
    What’s the consensus? Is it worth the $3800.00? The YouTube clip doesn’t do the van justice, the first 2 mins is video of the dash. What condition would you say it’s in? Any reply is much appreciated. Thanks much. G10guy.

    There's something funny going on with the driver side footwell, there is obvious rust out at the front of the wheel well, and the body panel seems to be just hanging with an uneven gap. I would want some good pics of that area with the door open.

    Hello again,
    The exterior, to me, seems doable. To me it looks as though the interior needs the most work. Or are my newbie eyes deceiving me? pics
    thanks,

    That's all the interior that van would have had from the factory. Might have had seats but I doubt it- no evidence of mounting hardware. Only the Deluxe models had the window trim and side upholstery.

    What puts me off is the driver's door step.

    it looks like barely anything is holding it on. When I view the pics on a 32" monitor, there is a lot of questionable areas that look like some hastily done bodywork.

    That said- the price isn't far off. $3000-$4000 will get a driver with body issues, or a cleaner body with a bad (or missing) drivetrain. You gotta pick your poison. Perhaps there's a member in the area that can get an eyeball on this van.


    Just to be clear, I am not saying you should pass on this van. Just pointing out an indicator that it may not be as solid as the pics make it look. If bodywork is not a turnoff, this may be worth a look. Be aware that prices on earlies have skyrocketed in the last few years, and former $500 beaters are now $2500 'rare finds', and a complete, turnkey van is well north of $10000.

    x2 on what greg said. a closer look shows under front bumper to be rough and ready to fail also. add a few dings in the body that were painted over and other areas that are rough but shiny paint and that puts all the body work in question. not a deal breaker, just know what your getting.
