The used item you are bidding on is as follows:

YEAR: 1973



4 cylinder, 4 speed, rear wheel drive.

Hard wedge top with Canvas sides and back with zippered screens, upper folding sleeping cot, folding dinette table, rear bed area (van sleeps 3 - 4 (?) total), storage compartments, woodgrain trim/paneling, chrome rain guards on front doors, headlight trim covers, etc.....

BODY CONDITION: Pretty solid and decent overall but has some surface rust/blistering around door bottom edges, rockers, wheel wells, trim edges, etc.......minor bubbles/blisters starting to show under paint. Some little rust starting around windshield and rain gutters but nothing severe. The two worst spots are on rear by/underneath tail lights.....starting to rust through/has holes.

Underneath: floors, frame mounts, etc....all solid and original!! Solid and original Inner Rockers too!!

Certainly not restored or perfect but a nice original and pretty solid piece to work with......NOT a backyard/hedgerow piece of rotted out junk!

All glass/windows are solid and in great shape.

All doors open, close, latch and lock with key!

Side slide door works good also.

Wedge top works properly and stays up. Canvas and screens and zippers are all good except one small 8" tear in the rear section but very easy to repair.

PAINT CONDITION: Looks decent considering above mentioned condition. Still looks very sharp in general.

****Look at pics!

INTERIOR CONDITION: Front seats are torn/ripped up and need recovered or replaced. All other cushions are dated/show wear but overall fair shape. Headliner is dated as well as the dash area......no longer a new van folks!!

This van also has the factory in dash clock that still works!!!!!

TIRE TREAD CONDITION: Fronts:75% Rears: 75%

ENGINE RUNNING CONDITION as tested: Starts up good, runs ok and although it has not been on the road for the last 5-6 years, it does run, drive, steer and stop good overall.

Should be tuned up, serviced and inspected/gone over before making a daily driver but nothing really major to complain about.

Other Notes/Comments: NOT new, NOT perfect, NOT flawless = it is 44 YEARS OLD FOLKS and has not been restored! However, as mentioned earlier.....it is also NOT a junk yard or overgrown field find!!!

This vehicle originated in Florida and then transferred to Ohio in 2010 where it was parked under a carport until this past summer when I picked it up. Previous owner bought it from original owner and drove it to Ohio, then parked it with the intent to restore it. He stated that he would start it 2-3 times a week to run it and would also drive it around his development @ once a month, just to keep it from going to crap.He has recently gone through a divorce which lead him to sell it......Now, here it is available to the public at a NO RESERVE AUCTION!!!

Great one to go over for a daily driver or a nice, easy restoration over the winter months!!

***Surfboard, beach balls and 2 beach towels are INCLUDED in the sale!!!!

I have done my best to accurately describe and pictureeverything on this bus as I have seen and noticed. If

you have a specific question or area of concern you want me to check out closer, just EMAIL me asap and I

will do my best to get you an answer asap!! ...... OR, come check her out for yourself.....I welcome all

You are buying a USED VEHICLE. You are NOT buying a new, restored (unless stated otherwise), perfect or flawless “show” vehicle.

This used item should be expected to have normal, typical wear and tear associated with its AGE, Miles, Weathering and Previous use: --Dents, dings, surface rust, rust flaking/scaliness on frames and Utility Beds/Tool boxes, windshield chips, interior wear, paint chips, scratches, cosmetic flaws, fluid leaks, rattles, squeaks, vibrations, inoperable accessories/options/radios, gauges, missing/broken trim, swapped out parts, aftermarket parts, etc....Please consider the AGE, the previous USE/Commercial use, weathering, etc….when purchasing ANY USED vehicle…plus:

---Commercial vehicles (in most cases) are used daily, left outside and used 24/7 in all kinds of weather, so rust flaking/peeling, faded paint, chipping paint, tire weathering, chassis/frame/cross member rust should ALL be normally/expected, even if NOT specifically mentioned in the ad. Metal + age + weather = will not be or look perfect or new in any way!!!

****Also, on BUCKET TRUCKS and UTILITY/SERVICE TRUCKS, we do NOT usually clean out tool boxes/storage bins….. so, whatever bags of money, tools, parts and trash are inside them are now YOURS!!

***We are just being realistic and honest by telling you what other sellers WON’T/DON’T!

***No sugar coating or fairytales here folks, so please be real in your expectations!

**** If you have a specific area of concern…..CALL or EMAIL us BEFORE YOU BID! ***Once you buy/take possession of this item, it is YOURS and no longer our responsibility or problem. It is YOUR job to be satisfied and content with the item…..before you buy it!

****The time to come inspect, Test Drive and nit-pick this item is BEFORE BIDDING.....NOT AFTER you win......it is YOUR responsibility to be satisfied before bidding!

*** We give EVERY opportunity for YOU to ask questions, get specific details, come test drive/Inspect items during the auction/before you bid, or hire an independent service to do it for you……..WE cannot and will not be responsible for your dissatisfaction if you did not do this.

FEEDBACK:We obviously, after 20 years of doing this, want to have the best feedback possible and again, will do our best to do so…..HOWEVER…..we will NOT be extorted or threatened into discounts, partial refunds or etc…..We are grown ups, adults and business people so if there is a legit problem or we made a legitimate mistake/listing error, we will hone up to it and handle it professionally with our buyer BUT will not tolerate game players/Liars.

We cannot help with any problem, issue or question if YOU do not contact us first. Unfair negative feedback will be replied to with our honest side/feedback.

*** Email us with ANY Questions or Concerns-----due to limited office hours, EMAILS are often able to be answered much quicker than phone messages.
