This kind of ad with a lot of precious “patina” photography that has no real detail and slang terms like “OG” used out of context do nothing but irritate me. Sorry, but you’re either selling or you’re not. WTF does “testing the waters “ even mean? I’m so tired of this nonsensical term. Either s**t or get off the pot.

I can see this van very easily for what it is... an old project that needs a lot of work and isn’t going to bring some kind of bulls**t Instagram “#vanlife” nirvana. Seriously, is he really trying to say that, “new valve stem seals” that “ don’t leak” add some kind of actual value??! Not only would I expect them to not leak but I question anyone that would think this would be a valuable advertising strategy. OMG, is the glass actually clean? Wow, that is amazing! Oh and you know what you have?? Good for you! Please, save me from this lame ad.

LMAO!

"Cons:
needs a brake booster and master cylinder as well"

One sentence later:

"fires right up flys 90 down the road easy and stops great disk brakes up front drum in rear."

So it needs a booster and master cylinder but stops great? God I hope someone smart ends up with this van...

"Van has a 360 with the 4 speed trans auto"

I seriously doubt this, unless you count reverse as a speed. The Mopar four speed auto wasn't introduced for smallblocks until 1988. Sure, someone could have swapped one in, but I doubt it.

I see a $1500-$2000 van, maximum. The buyer will have to spend lots of time correcting the previous "improvements."


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!
