Having grown up in the late 80s early 90s I can say that I also had similar jobs at a young age. Its not until the last 25 years that everything changed. Medical bills eh? I have a monthly expenditure of 1000$ for insulin. Its why I don't own an ultravan. lol

Paper routes, dishwasher, mow lawns, bottle boy at the liqueur store. I did all that stuff as a kid...we grew up in a great time for America.

It was a way to learn responsibility that most kids don't have now. On my paper route I had to buy the papers and collect the money for the subscriptions myself.

It sure is a shame . I know that the one inevitability of life is change , other than death. But I am sure most of the members on this board remember being able to go down the street with their lawn mower and cut a neighbors' grass or do some kind of handy work for a few dollars. A paper route is another good example .Now I see people with their front seat removed and full of papers doing deliver

I had 2 paper routes when I was 12. Had to make money to buy parts and gas for my motorcycle. I guess they won't allow 12 year olds to work now.

Brings back memories, doesn't it . Oil sold in the can. My first real job was pumping gas at an EXXON gas station in Harvey La. back in late 1976. I was 14 and I thought that was the coolest job in the world. No debit cards and full service was the thing. I would usually have $400 or $500 cash deposits every few hours to drop. I haven't seen oil in the can for years.::o::o

If you read his ad,his asking price is 15K.Usually "asking price" means that the price is negotiable.Cracking or not it is still worth it IMHO.

Quote from his email.. "I am running this sale auction style. I will take offers for a week or so then sell to the highest bidder. Current high bid is 15K."

I talked to him and he didn't say anything about bids and neither does the ad. He should have mentioned that for sure. From all the cracking in the one picture I'm not sure it is as nice as it sounds.

Early Oakland-built UltraVans (1962-1965) had Econoline headlights. https://www.flickr.com/photos/8769347@N03/sets/7215764865066668

What a pleasure to see a nice one for sale. Usually they're in poor condition with a load of moss, algae, lichen, etc. Very nice unit for a great price.

I do not think so. Tony had two hauled on a 45 ft Flatbed... I would call your local "Freight Forwarder".. small independent with 27ft Gooseneck flat bed and 1 ton truck can do it..

Can a standard car hauling service carry this? I'm very interested, but its a looong way from me.

Looks like it has the angle exhaust tube mod, a common mod for 140 heads. The steering wheel to dash clearance looks a bit like a knuckle buster though, could just be perspective but it looks really, really close.

Check out the turn indicators on the side view mirrors; also the "light show" on the underside is very unique.
