SOLD!! 1970 V8 UltraVan #549 in Ohio
Posted by: owen ()
Date: August 18, 2016 05:31AM

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.
