'68 must have been the big year for Ultra Vans, there's quite a spread in the numbers and a lot of them for sale seem to be '68s.
It's got the Corvair sort of steering column with the Impala sort of instrument panel. 420 has a Signal Stat turn signal, I don't think it cancels but seemed nice and robust.
Did someone change the parking brake? It looks like a pretty nice arrangement compared to what I remember with 420.
I don't see a shift lever.
I think I could sit in that driver's seat for quite a while.
It's got bumpers.
The front end seems like the logical place to mount the spare tire but I've always thought it messes with the aerodynamic looks.
There's another one in the pictures. I wonder if he's got another one or was at a rally.

He's also got #510 V-8 in another listing to answer my own question.

Norm Helmkay put that parking brake lever in several coaches. There is a Tech Tip about it I think.

The big window in the door is also a mod. And I think it originally had a long kitchen window so that is a mod as well.

Gearshift is mounted sideways on the right edge of the panel.

Did '69s have to have a smog engine?

Jim, where is 510 for sale?
Found it. The main UV page redirects to a .club site that doesn't have 510 listed.

The FS page for #510 is here:
http://www.corvair.org/chapters/ultravan/used/used510.html

I also posted it to another thread here at CC. If you missed that, just search for "forsale" with sender "owen" and it should come up.


ultravan.club is the new official Club website. They have a hard time keeping up with all the changes I make to the FS pages though. So I keep the top FS page updated at the old site: http://www.corvair.org/chapters/ultravan/used.html

Safe travels,
Owen

Because the old site gives me more space to work with.
