SOLD!! 1970 V8 UltraVan #549 in Ohio 3/22/19 307 SBC big car PG

This is on State Route 416, about 5 miles south of downtown New Philadelphia Ohio (~50 miles south of Akron). Unfortunately the previous owner seems to have passed and I can't quite read the phone number on the sign.

Safe travels,
Owen

Why not? At least 39 of the 47 factory V8 coaches were sold in 1970, they didn't close until June 25, 1970. The last serial number sold by the factory was #556, so #549 was very close to the end.

There were also 3-4 Corvair UVs sold in 1970 - they still had new Corvair engines in stock when they auctioned off the remaining inventory 5/4/74.

Is it a V-8? Are they identified by the grille? Does the radiator sit in back?

Yes, all coaches numbered #510 thru #556 were delivered from the factory with a 307 cid Chevy V8 engine, 2 speed Powerglide, Walters V-drive, and Corvette axle & rear suspension.

The radiator for these coaches is below the rear hatch (which is smaller than on Corvair coaches), with an expanded metal grille. This is actually the first custom grille I've seen.

I wonder why the buyer would care about the seller's phone number being in this thread?

Because the seller doesn't want to be bothered any more, and asked him to request its removal.

I want it! Does anyone know anything about it? Seen it recently? I'm wondering about the condition in person.

Apparently the eBay auction didn't work last year, now they are trying again on Facebook Marketplace:

It looks pretty nice but the paint is probably terrible in person by the looks of the fully painted windshield gasket. Has anyone seen it up close?

Agreed, and rust showing. Look above the passenger windshield drip rail. Bad place!

If it don't go, chrome it!

They are aluminum and fiberglass. Hard to rust any of that.

No it won't rust but it will corrode! That is aluminum's equivalent of rust.

If anyone wants it looked at I am not that far away from it.

So true Ken and maybe worse.
If this is really a turn key unit I may have to buy it.
The rear fiberglass looks pretty rough on the drivers side near the tail light.

If it's not Corvair powered I don't see any attraction to it. The things are fugly especially this one. I would be ashamed to park that thing anywhere.
