1965 Chevrolet Other
1965 Chevrolet G series sports panel van RAREChevy 350 v8 5.7L engine with T-350 auto trans.. Had over the shoulder seat belts installed. Engine runs cool, has an edelbrock carb and an HEI distributor, and all new exhaust 5 years ago, the trans shifts smooth, but the motor burns oil while driving. New manufactured leaf springs and new coil springs and shock absorbers installed a few years ago. Smooth going down the road. New updated fuse box installed. Has a Lo Jack anti- theft police tracker system if it ever gets stolen. New felt and rubber installed for windows and doors a few years ago when I got this. Tires are good- Coker radial wide whites ( never got new ones in the 5 years I've owned it-only 4 miles to work). All lights, headlights, wiring etc work and have been replaced when I first received it. Hazard lights flasher installed. Back up camera installed that works in conjunction with back up lights.Has been my daily driver for the last 5 years to and from work, plus a little here and there around town( avg. 10 miles a day- joy riding/errand running 20 miles). Unfortunately the mileage gauge doesn't work- I got it like that and have no idea how many miles are on this engine. I've never washed it since owning it as can be seen from the pictures. This was a rat rod style paint job-brown primer painted on top of the original blue. As can be seen in the photos, the original paint is beginning to show which i think makes this look all the more bad ass. There are a few nicks in the paint being chipped, howver the body is in AMAZING shape without any rust or dents. I'm in the northwest, however this van to the best of my knowledge spent it's entire life in the southwest desert. Only selling because I just got a "new" 1962 Falcon on a deal ). This van was a mess when I got it ( the body was the only redeeming quality). No seat belts, seats weren't bolted in, shifting gears barely worked, brakes were backwards, no lights, the leaf springs were lowered which damaged them, etc- basically it was not driveable. After the purchase price, Lo Jack instillation, modifications etc( I put a 1965 chevy Nova bumper on the back, and a 1956 unknown bumper on front) I've spent a total of 36k on this thing. Crazy I know, however I'm not a mechanic by a long shot and payed for everything done on this. I have all the paperwork saved. Here is your chance to cruise in style. These vans are getting so hard to find, ford econolines are everywhere but the Chevys are RARE. Scooby-doo van, surfer van, weekend camping getaway, swapmeet cruiser, HOME, the possibilities are endless. Perfect to advertise your business, just add your name to the side- it's a rolling billboard that gets lots of thumbs up everywhere you go, and people love to take pictures of it all the time. Will definitely get you noticed. Got a tattoo shop, barber sho, hot rod shop, here you go, just add some gas and your off. Thanks for looking!
