Seller's Description

1999 Grumman Olson step van bread truck / dwelling unit for sale, functionally built out and adaptable to any use. Ready to live in, take on the road or operate a business out of. Add solar panels and a water tank for a fully off-grid mobile tiny home, or simply park near existing facilities and start using as-is for an AirBnB, vacation cabin or guest unit. This is a rare find mechanically, with the classic '90s Grumman aluminum rustproof body on a Freightliner MT35 chassis powered by a 3.9 L4 Cummins Diesel - both highly regarded and dependable, and seldom seen as a package. Manual transmission. The box is 18' long by 7' wide x 7' tall; overall vehicle length 26'. 265k total miles, almost entirely from the original owner while fleet maintained and garage kept (low for a diesel work truck), and completely overhauled in 2015 (new engine, transmission, brakes, steering, tires) with less than 15k miles added since - practically new. Engine rebuild by Jasper, to OEM specs with upgraded parts and seals. Frame is rust-free, in excellent condition. Recent work includes new battery, regular maintenance, repairs to fuel lines and electrical, and a full inspection a few months ago. Truck is generally in great shape and runs well. Minor body dings, see photos. Clean title; records of all service and repairs are included with sale. Professional buildout designed and performed by an architect and carpenter in 2018: Rear box sealed off from cab with insulated wall and latching door. Removed and replaced rear rollup door with custom fabricated 270 degree full-outswing insulated aluminum security doors, with double glazed window units. Installed two double glazed thermal skylights on aluminum curbs. Installed closed cell spray foam insulation at floor, roof and all sides; R-13. Solid tongue and groove maple cladding over plywood decking at floor, roof and all sides. Integrated with the cladding are full length built-in infrastructure channels for future electrical and lighting (or any other purpose required). A Dwarf wood stove with insulated waterproof chimney (roof extension detaches for driving) provides instant and ample heat in winter, properly installed with a noncombustible hearth and wall protection. Also included is a small kitchenette with shelving, storage and counter. Interior is clean, tight and daylit. Doors can be swung fully open to disappear and bring the outside in, and the main skylight is operable for ventilation. This is a one-of-a-kind vehicle: a stylish classic van box and top-notch diesel-engine chassis, both workhorse builds in great condition, and a well-designed and constructed interior fit-out that's prime for further customization. Spacious, comfortable, cheerful, dependable and ready for scheming. Additional photos and info available upon request. Furnishings / interior items can be included in sale.
