This is the Sunday Edition of the Hooniverse Weekend… Did you miss me when I wasn’t on Weekend Duty? I’m sure that this weekend’s theme will make you glad I haven’t been around much… Just kidding! Anyway, let’s continue with this Wretched Theme with an actual “Art Car”. This is a Van
Gough Gogh Van (Say that 10 times fast…) and it is actually used as a working van instead of a Parade Piece. So, do you think you have what it takes to Van Gough Gogh get this thing and call it your own?
According to the listing:
I’ve decided that with all of the vehicles that I have I should sell my Van Gogh Van. I’ve had it advertised it before but someone keeps flagging my ads I guess out of spite since they couldn’t afford it, dude get a life.
I am an art dealer so when I found this van sitting in a warehouse in St Joseph MO I knew that I just had to have it. It was painted by 5 artists over a 3 day period as part of an art car competition at the Trails West Art Festival in St. Joseph in August 2008 then used as advertising for Brown’s Moving & Storage. If you do a google search for it you’ll find 80 or so pics of it being painted.
I’ve put about 2,000 miles on it & boy howdy does it get attention! He’s got some rusty areas. I’ve replaced the brake lines, hard & rubber, battery, solenoid, rear door seals, flushed the fluids & it just passed it’s Missouri Inspection this spring. There are 2 large areas on the sides for your company logos & this is a whole lot cheaper than a stationary billboard. This is NOT a vehicle wrap, it’s the real deal & there is not another one just like it anywhere.
Basically this is a good running $1,500 van with a priceless paint job featuring several works from one of the most famous Art Masters of all time, Vincent Van Gogh. It is a 1992 Ford Econoline E-150 Cargo with the 4.9 liter 6cyl & automatic transmission with about 179k miles & gets around 15 mpg. Located in Lone Jack MO, just 9 miles east of Lee’s Summit.
Cash, credit or debit cards only please, NO checks of any kind, I may consider taking a nice 12′ or 14′ enclosed cargo trailer in as a partial or even trade depending on the trailer. Clean & clear title in hand. I really want this to sell to an artist or art collector/dealer who will appreciate it as a piece of artwork, but………..
Asking price for the Van
Gough Gogh Van (I just love typing that…) is $2,300. So do you think it’s worth the asking price, or should the owner just Van Gough away? See the listing here, and let me know if you should Van Gough Gogh and get it.
