1969 Chevrolet G20 VanI have relisted this van as I got no bids last time I had it on. I lowered the starting price and the reserve price. I am selling my late husband's 1969 Chevrolet Van. We are the original owners of this van and it had been run during the summer months until 2003 when my husband passed away and has since been sitting in our garage attached to the house, with a cement floor. My daughter nor I drive a stick so we would not drive it.Last month I had a mechanic work on the van, he put on a new water pump, rebuilt the Holly carburetor, put new gas lines in, a transmission seal, changed the transmission fluid and other things to get it running. It sounds good.I The mechanic also told me the undercarriage had no rust or holes in the floor boards that he could see. The last time it was painted, was 1999. My husband painted the van but for some reason he did not do the roof, it is still white but not as nice as the rest of the van. The battery is one the mechanic brought but it is not new. It needs to be charged for the van to start. I did not want to spend money on a new battery in case the van did not sell. It has seat belts on the seats in the front.My husband and I were married in March 1970 and shortly after we bought the van new. It was a leftover from 1969 at Nick Chevrolet in Tarentum,PA. For some reason the title says 1970, but it is a leftover 6, not sure why they did that, as you can see, the engine is in between the seats. 70 started with the engine in the front. We are the original owners of the van but the title was changed 2 times, the first time it was in my father in laws name because he had to sign for my husband because he was not yet 21. Then my husband had it changed into his name, then when he passed away in 2003, I had it changed to my name in 2005. I have the original sales paper and it states on there the vehicle was new when we bought it. It was never used for a work vehicle. Only a pleasure vehicle for our personal use such a camping and vacations.This van started out green, it has been many colors through the years but is now white with blue trim. It has had many different motors too, but the one that is in it now was special built by a friend of my husbands who was a master engine builder. I called him to get all the details. It is a 355 engine .030+ balanced and blue printed with a 530 hydraulic cam and gets between 330-340 horsepower. He also said that it had 3.73 gear ratio in the rear end that he put in for him. My husband put in a bigger fan and an electric fan. It has a standard transmission . It is not on the floor, it has 3 speeds and reverse. I am not sure of what kind of transmission but I am sure it was some kind of heavy duty one.My husband was a fiberglass boat builder and repairman. He built and put on the flares and the wing. The van was last inspected in 2005, my husband died in 2003. I didn't have the heart to stop running it and since it is a stick, I won't drive it so I had my nephew come out and take it to have inspected for those two years. I eventually couldn't afford the registration and inspections so it has been sitting in my attached garage since then. I took my blazer to be inspected and my mechanic told me it is totally rusted underneath because I have been letting it sit out all those years during the bad winters and wet springs. So, I decided, I need to sell the van, get a newer vehicle, and have a place to park it in the winter.We only ran it in the summer in later years mostly on weekends, so there were not many miles on the new engine. It has never been driven in the winter. The tires are up but not sure how good they are. From the pictures you will see he had some insulation under the hood, that looks like it will need changed as will the rubber around the hood.The interior still looks good. There is a little ice box with a cupboard above for storage and storage box on the side. The bedroom fits two easily and there is lots of storage underneath. I know there has been body work done on it through the years and I think some was metal but not positive and some was putty. The mattress in the bedroom is a piece of foam. and the floor is foam padded and carpet.
He saved all the emblems that came on it and two say 108, pretty sure that is the wheelbase. There is a blue canvas awning that was special made for the van that we put on while we were camping. He built a console where the sun visors were, there are two compartments for storage. Also in the middle of the van on the left of the ice box and cabinet there is a little storage area. He made a snap on naugahyde piece for there. And to the right of the ice box is a little storage bin that holds quite a bit of stuff, it has the fur lined lid. Under the bed is a secret compartment to hide valuables while traveling or camping. He spent many years getting this van to where it is now. He cared nothing about original, I guess you can see that. There is also an Alpine radio with cassette player with two speakers in the back of the van. It has the remote and the book that came with it. This is a big deal for me selling our van, it was such a big part of our life. The van has always been garage kept with a cement floor. I also forgot to say it has dual exhausts and no power steering. I hired someone to do a little body work, mostly on the fender flares and a little under the two side doors. I checked the lights, turn signals, dimmer switch, windshield wipers, horn and they all work.
