considering purchasing this van... any insight?
« on: March 17, 2017, 08:57:29 PM »
i don't know much about vans/cars. but i've had my eyes on this for a while.
my buddy says the asking price is way too steep and that it's a rust bucket for sure.
but it looks so beautiful and and i can totally understand why one would want to sell it for the price it's listed at.

any insight would be much appreciated.

I don't know much about second hand van values in the US but I can see that $6000 for a 1978 van is way over the top.

No way on earth!  That's a $2,000 van tops.  That guy's looking for a sucker, and that bed certainly isn't worth a grand.
