Chevy Conversion Van

Seller's Description

This high top van runs great and is mechanically sound, with everything working. Cold and warm air-conditioning, in the front and back, factory electric fold down back seat to bed option. The middle seats easily removable with one hand lever, and then can be used outside while camping. I built this van during covid, and I added a lot of cool stuff. For example a Sony Bluetooth stereo with external hands free microphone for calls. I added two Sony amplifiers with all new 12 speaker stereo system, with subwoofer which really brings the music, on those long roadtrips. This van has added fog lights in the front and back, with Magellan Navigation and Magellan back up camera. This van is powered by a 5.7 liter Vortec 350 cu engine, and i had the 4L60E automatic transmission rebuilt around 1200 miles ago (with receipts). I had alignment,shocks, brakes, and steering components replaced (with receipts) around the same time. Safelite replaced the windshield, so no rock chips. I added Yellowtop Optima AGM starting battery, which helps running exterior lights as well as Jensen rv 12 volt flat-screen tv, and the stock VHS player. I added a 1500 watt pure sine wave power inverter, that's powered by a Renogy 100 ah lithium battery and complete Renogy 300 watt solar setup, which I have also installed several 12 volt power ports from front to back with a Blue Sea fuse box and a Maxx Air Deluxe Fan, with forward and reverse, mounted cosmetically perfect in the ceiling. The roof rack is a hightop Vantech version with the solar panels mounted underneath, so that kayaks or other supplies could be more easily transported. This would block some of the solar input while traveling, if say kayaks were blocking the solar panels, so I also added a battery tender, so that the house battery could be safely charged while driving, as well with a push of a button you can have the solar battery actually charge the starting battery, in case of a dead battery while camping far out somewhere. I added a 110 volt exterior electric plug, with house style GFCI protected outlets, in case you were plugged in to shore power. I added a tow hitch, for a cargo carrier, but i have never towed anything with it, but with the powerful smooth running V8 and the fresh transmission, im sure it could tow a lot, if you asked. Cosmetically the van looks pretty good overall, with the most noticeable paint imperfections being clear coat is starting to chip away from the very back of the fiberglass hightop area (as pictured). I believe that this could be professionally repaired inexpensively, or with a little elbow grease, and a rattle can of clear, I feel like it would be fine. The front seats are super comfortable, but show the most wear by far, as the back seats are in really good shape. The upper wood cabinets look pretty good, as the bottom wood trim areas show sun damage, and should be refinished. All the windows are tinted, and if you are not hip to what these style of van offer, the windows all pop open, or slide open, and have screens, and privacy blinds. I can't find any rust, I mean not even a little bit. I personally drove this van from Florida to Texas comfortably and without issue, a few years ago, and it's been hardly used since then. I put ethanol free gas only, with fuel additive, as well as I start it and drive around town, about every 3 to 4 weeks, just to keep the fluids running through it. Honestly, it's a good van, with not much use in a while, so if you want it or could put her to good use, hit me up. I will make you a good deal, just no low ballers, I spent a lot of time wiring this up, and I didn't cut any corners.
