Another Greenbrier saved.

It was too good to pass up. The seller's father was put into an assisted living home. The Greenbrier and spare engines needed to be moved. Before the property could be cleaned.
It is in surprisingly good shape. It has all of the seats and a ton of parts stored inside.

Once it gets home, I'll clean it up and decide what to do with it.

No offense but that van is circling the drain if you ask me.

Who in their right mind would "save" that mess?

Why put yourself through the headaches, time and expense if you can find one running & registered for only a few thousand bucks?

Well Ralph, a person might reserve his judgement until it has been cleaned-up, and cleaned-out.

You might be surprised at just what is under all of that mess. thumbs up
Or, we might be shocked at what is under all of that mess! thumbs down

The truth is, the pictures do not tell us very much at this point.

Some of us like a challenge and some of us don't. To each his own. Personally, I either like a challenge, am a glutton for punishment, or have mental illness... I can't figure out which.

We also might might be surprised what is in that "mess" (of parts).
Nice find Mr. Morton. Looks to be cold there though.

Congratulations on what will hopefully be a great vehicle.

Remember people.....There are NO Mistakes in Life, only Lessons. The Lessons are repeated until they are Learned.

In my opinion, simply by looking at the photo's provided, it appears to be something I myself could have drug home if it were local to me and relatively complete and Solid Looking.

I am sort of looking for PG Window Van. Preferably a Solid turn key daily driver example that does not need to be perfect.

I absolutely don't want something I would be afraid to actually use.

At the moment Shade's Classic Cars has a 1964 that with the exception of a hole in the roof, looks like something I could easily own.
I am afraid to inquire about it simply because I might not be able to say no at this point. The timing is wrong for me.

Cut and paste from the ad"

"Price: $3900 (Stock #2260)

This 1964 Greenbrier 95 van has literally spend its entire life in Arizona and is virtually rust-free. It has a very good running 110hp, 164ci engine along with a power glide automatic transmission.
Drive this Greenbrier unrestored or you could have a great platform for a restoration."

Nay sayers are entitled to their opinion........ My belief is to keep your negative opinion to yourself. Be encouraging and give sound advice.

The Greenbrier was just one of those things I couldn't pass up. I won't miss any meals or loose any sleep.

It has been sitting there for several decades and was going to have to be moved anyway.

Like I said "Once it gets home, I'll clean it up and decide what to do with it." I never said or intend to restore it.

The floors are solid, the glass is intact, all of the seats, PG transmission, clear title and 1 previous owner. 4 extra power packs and a ton or old spare parts.
I'm sure it can a least provide some usable parts for an 8 door that I need to retrieve.

Caraholic4life:

Have you looked at my Greenbrier? 3 seater. It is a real Deluxe van. Closing up on getting shrouds ready to install and other engine items completed. Hope to run it in about 6 - 8 weeks (if other projects allow me). Mine will at least have a going through of the engine. Road required items will be repaired/working.

64 is a great year! That's a nice find. The moss will wash off. The grime will clean up. Looks like a 66 - 69 exhaust grill inside! But I'm not sure about all that White build-up stuff all on top it! Looks like it's really heavy and stuck on! Don't see that kind of stuff much here on the coast of So. Kalyphornya. Could be a real challenge chiseling that stuff off!eye popping smiley

Funny thing. We only get the white stuff here in the Boise area a couple times a year. It’s gone for now
