Interesting. Thanks. It says the original Ultra Van sales price in 1962 was $9,500. In today's $ based on inflation that would calculate to over $78,000. Quite expensive back then.
The base price of a Corvette in 1962 was $4,038 plus options ($33,000 in today's $) .The 1962 Corvair was about $2,500, ($20,500 in today's $)

That was the ACTUAL price of the very first custom built UltraVan that was ever sold (#103).

List prices from the factory were lower though. Here are the published list prices that I could find:

UltraVan:
$6995 (1964 flyer)
$8450 (early 1966 ads)
$8950 (late 1966 and 1967 ads)
$9450 (1968 ads)
$8995 (1969 ads)
$9150 (1969 May 22 letter from Knipe)

V8 UltraVan:
$10,950 (1969 ads)

Tiara:
$14,650 (1969 ads)
