1970 Ford E-Series Van HAVE SOME FUN THIS SUMMER

INTERNATIONAL AND OVERSEASBUYERS WELCOME! PLEASE CALL ME AT (76O) 8O5-8038 TO BUY IT NOW!SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY PLEASE. THIS IS NOTA GAME AND IS NOT CHEAP.THANKS AND GOOD LUCK! Pictures do not do this van justice. This is an incredible and very rare 1970 Ford Econoline Van Camper that was originally producedasa Western Wagonby Chinook based out of Washington. It has been beautifully restored and is not your typical van. The paint and body are gorgeous. This was restored from a verynice original paint example. It has zero rust and has never had any. The floorpans and undercarriage are excellent, as you would expect from a lifelong California van. The body is excellent and extremely straight. It is powered by a strong 302 cubic inch Ford V-8 mated to an automatic transmission. It has factory air conditioning. It blows cool but not ice cold. It needs to be charged. It runs well, shifts well, drives well,and has plenty of power forcruising up themountain on your adventures. This van draws a HUGE crowd anywhere you take it. It is ready to be enjoyed but will also be ideal for your business. Whether you are an artist or a vendor at Street Fairs in Southern CA, this can be used as your interactive showroom. People love to get inside, climb around, and smile. You will lose count of the number of people that want to take pictures with it. It has an original Pop Top that is great since it gives you a ton more head room inside. Plus, it is just really cool. It pops up easily and can be done in seconds by one person. Retractable step that goes up and down in sequence with opening the side doors. Pop-out side windows. Most of the camper stuff was removed and the interior was custom designed, one of a kind,and professionally done. Custom surfboard style skimboardtable. Beanbag chair and all of the pillows are included. The upholstery is still like new. There is plenty of storage underneath the benches for all of your gear or your products. It is an excellent example but not perfect either. The dash pad has a few minor cracks. You can easilyget new reproduction dash pads but it has not been done. The air conditioning vents have some minor cracks.The front passenger area has not been carpeted. It is easier for the beach and cleanup with floor mats that can be shaken right out. Nothing big but I want to be upfront and honest about everything ahead of time so the only thing you think about when you get it is how much you love your new van! Like newMoon stylewheels with good BF Goodrich Radial T/A raised white letter tires. This is an excellent example of an early Fordandwould be difficult to find another one like it. It is not a perfect Concours example either so please be realistic with your expectations. I do not believe anybody will be disappointed with it.It would cost a fortune to have this van built today.The vannin craze is huge right now, especially here in SunnySouthern California where they can be driven year round. Prices have gone through the roof lately especially on the vintage cool stuff, Chevy and Dodge included.I already have another 1967 orange Shorty named the General Lemmy with all modern drivetrain/suspension and my dog Johnny Cash likes it better. I am also selling my red 1964 Econoline Shorty Show Van for the same reason. Plus being therocket scientistthat I am, I just bought a one of one 1963 Econoline Motorhome that is going take up a good amount of my time and FAR more money when I restore it. Clean, clear CA title in hand with current CA registration. No smog ever needed.Tow your vintage Airstream across the Great Old US of A in style! I am located in Cardiff, California in North County Coastal San Diego. Thanks!
