Continuing on with the Hooniverse Van-Tastic Weekend, here is a van you don’t find anywhere anymore. This is a GMC Handivan, which shares almost all of the sheet metal, chassis, engines, and practically everything else with the Chevrolet G-Series van of the same vintage.
When General Motors brought out the Corvan in 1961, the GMC Truck Division was left out of the equation. This was resolved in 1964, when the Chevy G-Series and the GMC Handivan were introduced, eventually replacing the Corvair Van. The early models could be identified by the flat front windshield, while the 1968 face lift featured a more rounded appearance. The featured Handivan is one of those 1968 models, and according to the listing:
GMC Handivan. Completely restored. Custom interior, white pine paneling, beige carpet on floor and ceiling; 250 6-cylinder, 3-speed on the column, great on gas! Aluminized exhaust, Outlaw II wheels, new tires, brakes. Over $10,000 invested.
Asking price for this rarefied GMC? $6,000, which again seems high…. See the listing here.
