    Am I being realistic in thinking I can find a van like this one in the $5000 price range?

    Is the van below in as good condition as this one. When the thread below posted it was going for like $4800.

    Itís fairly unlikely, in this instance, at least. This van is heavily modified for functionality. That costs a lot of money. Iíd imagine Terryís got well over $20k into the van. What you will find in the $5k range will be vans that are running and look ok, but they will not have been given this level of attention.

    Yeah, Iíll need to stay within my budget. $12000 is way out of my league.

    thanks,

    Having seen this van up close, don't let the primer fool you. There is a lot of top quality work on this van that even a veteran vcv fan could miss. For instance, it was 3 days before I fully grasped what was done to the dash, and having replaced mine in my 68, I know how much work it was to do this mod in a first gen.

    And to add to that list of hidden mods...... Terry asked me to sit in his van (when I met him at Johnís memorial service) and see if I noticed anything special. I saw way too many modifications to pick one in particular, when he informed me that he centered the steering wheel/column to the front seat. I can imagine that took a lot of work. It has so many little upgrades like that, I couldnít even begin to list them.
