Was driving through Alamogordo when I saw this van at a used/consignment business. It’s been there for a while. Perhaps it would become my fishing van although it is lower and heavier than I’d like.
1996 Chevy Van G20. 3500. V8. 5.7L. (Gas mileage will suck). Inside looked good. Underneath not much rust.
The inspection gave me a chance to step into a van with this type of roof. I couldn’t stand upright. Needed another 5″ or so. But it certainly helped the ability to move about and it made it feel roomier.
Look at that awesome color. Kind of a cross between blue and violet. I loved it. I also loved the cubby holes trimmed in mahogany. Even had an awesome cubby for tissues behind the driver’s seat.
The engine purred. I was on the last part of my inspection when he started the van so I could hear it. It was musical. I’d decided I would drive it over Monday to my mechanic. But as I’m taking a last front on look I see a drip-drip only a couple of inches behind the front bumper. I realized we hadn’t started the AC so it couldn’t come from that. I touched the gravel upon which the drops fell and rubbed it between my fingers. Oily. I’m not wanting to do leak repair. Probably pass.
But it had some awesome features unknown to me who has never been in anything other than a commercial van.
I shall keep looking.
