I think it’d be cool to put in a high power Mercedes engine into one of those and do a cannonball run with like 5 people.

You’ll have to dig out a Renault Avantime. It’s a two door minivan with the most amazing doors. Then what about Citroen CX Safari. Especially the six wheel version.

Damn I like this lol , really maken me want one to take on trips or vacations . There is a 80s or 90s model it looks just like this one but it's a redish maroon color GMC an in good condition a older guy had it an drive it all time an slow or easy when he did drive it before he passed.

The ones I seen at junkyard once I sat in one an checked it out I was like this I damn these seats wow so soft an that wood grain ahh man just suckers me in more 😂🙃

I have exactly the same van, same color and interior that comes from my father. I have the 350 engine in mine. I have this one and a cargo version. These are by far the 2 vehicles that I like the best to drive and the ones that I prefer in all the ones that I have had.

My parents had one! Boy that brings back memories of road trips and looking out the windows (pre smart phones). I’m disappointed you didn’t talk about one of the vans coolest features which is the side opening front wing windows. Now sadly a relic of the past.

My first car was a Chevy G20 conversion. Mine was a short wheelbase with the 4.3l V6. I got it because I was into model aircraft at the time, and it is was close to me and inexpensive. It was done by Mark III, and had a lovely satin white DuPont Imron finish. My 5'10" self could stand upright in it, it was like a big scary, tippy, comfy couch.

No.1 cylinder crapped out on the early ones. Thin casting made it hot & vulnerable. Don't know if this was worked out by the end of the run. Owned a '96 GMC Mark III hi-top. Shifting solenoids crapped out. Damn dealers would charge for a new transmission when they knew it was a $25. job. Hell to pay one day.

Mr. Hoover, I believe this may be a new request and a first for your channel...I have become a homeless person due to a series of unfortunate incidents in my life...I am wondering if there is any way for u to sell me this vehicle so's to help me keep a roof over my head and shelter me from what the winter will bring...my income is so limited, that I cannot even afford to pursue bankruptcy...can u find it in your heart to help me in this dillema I now face?..this is not a joke...and I do not lie. I do not exhagerate. Thanks so much for your time. God bless.

Your video inspired me to seek out my mom's Dodge Ram van. Turns out, her boyfriend (she died 14 years ago) held onto the van for me to get when I was old enough! I didn't know this, like we had discussed it but I didn't think he was really going to keep it and give it to me, but I reached out to him and he's like yeah, come get it! She's in really rough shape but I plan on getting her running and sorted out after the years of neglect. Lots of memories in that van. I bet one of my Disney movies is still in the VCR.

I like what you say but how you say it is a bit hard to take especially in the mornings if you enjoy easing into your mornings. Listening to you is as if you have turned your radio on and someone left the volume up or someone loosened the lid on your salt shaker. Dump! Arrhhggggg! Ease into it boy. Take your manic drugs..

I took a sprinter cargo van and converted it into a 80s conversion Van. I could fit two rows of conversion van sized bucket seats and a three spot conversion bench/ bed in the back. But I could also do three rows of CV buckets in the back or replace rows 1 and two with two seater benches or Pull out row 2 and in rows 1 and two have CV three seat bench beds though getting into the back was a bit of a squeeze

Sweet vid, great assessment. The ford chariots are also awesome... It’s the greatest muscle luxury vehicles ever!-) Muscle van? ........ Check. Heavy Metal Hightop?..Check. Rare? ................Check. Going up in value? YES. The 1996 Ford Chariot Hightop with a 5.0 (302), is the rarest ford. The 1998 Chevy Chariot Hightop with a 350, is the rarest of the Chevy’s.

Very cool. I bought one in 1986 but it was not as ornate as this one. My kids loved that van and so did I. Captain's chairs (4), great windows, carpet everywhere and drove and rode great. I would buy a good one in a minute but I never see them this well maintained as yours.
