This one's been "lost" since 1990. Michael Moreno told me he found it at a storage lot a couple years ago (before he bought #257) but I never got any contact info.

Thanks!!
Owen

I went and looked at it. It needs everything.

They claim the engine runs but were unable to fire it up when I got there.

I can't see why anyone would think the engine (or transaxle) would be good enough to run let alone rely on.

My overall impression is it developed serious mechanical issues and has been sitting for decades.

The present owner (I spoke with the owner's representative) was fairly uncertain about most anything about it which seemed rather self-serving to me.

The exterior is rough (lots of dents and super bad paint) and the water and fuel tanks are questionable at best.

The interior is is poor condition, long time water damage from leaks, dirty and disgusting.

For some reason the engine compartment was raised so the bed in the back is not flat.

I declined. I think it's bound for the junkyard since making it nice again would easily cost over $10,000.00.

forsale

UltraVan #277 has a new craigslist ad (Thanks Phil!):
https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/rvs/d/1962-corvair-ultra-van/6696332189.html

I don't know if this is the same seller as before, I see that the phone number is different though.
