The Chevrolet Venture van was introduced in the autumn of 1997, and was the more traditional follow-up to the plastic “Dust Buster” Lumina APV. The Venture actually sold a lot better than the APV, offered both a short and long wheelbase version, and optional driver-side sliding doors at introduction (later to become standard). Ok, blah blah blah blah about the Venture, and yes it was a rather boring minivan, but one of the television advertisements became memorable. Make the jump to see why…
Now that particular Corvair Van can be yours. Well, at least its more exciting than any Venture you could own. According to the listing:
1962 CHEVROLET HIPPY VAN GREENBRIER VAN. WAS FEATURED IN A CHEVROLET VENTURE VAN COMMERCIAL. NICE ART WORK, PERFECT FOR ANY 60s EVENT. HAS REAL GLASS BEADS, TYE DYE DOOR PANELS.
I HAVE SOME PAPERWORK FROM TV COMMERCIAL AND TWO CHEVY HUB CAPS THEY USED. THE UNDERNEATH IS CLEAN WITH NO RUST. MOTOR RUNS STRONG AND DOSEN’T SMOKE. THIS IS A MUST HAVE FOR ANY EVENT OR PARTY YOU WILL BE THE TALK OF THE TOWN. NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I HAD SUCH A VEHICLE GET SO MUCH ATTENTION I’VE HAD NUMEROUS PEOPLE REMEMBER IT FROM THE COMMERCIAL.
I know, there isn’t much information about the van, but this is where I can fill in a bit. This van is equipped with the 2-speed powerglide automatic, and it has a custom exhaust system, with both sides exiting in front of the rear wheels. The Buy-It-Now price for this rather interesting van is $11,900, which I think is a bit too rich for what you get. What do you think of this van?
