    Well gentleman, when my Grandpa Drey passed away last year he left many pristine vehicles with low miles on them. Although they are old to the point they are hard to sell. One 73 caprice we yanked a motor out of for my pickup, while the other sits at our farm because it is in such good condition we dont really wanna sell it. Shoot sorry im rambling already.

    Anyway the vehicle in question is a 1984 Chevrolet Halfton Van. It has a 305, 3 speed tranny(im guessing th350) It has a Beauville trim option. The ac has been retrofited to R-134a. It also has rear heat. The back seat also turns into a bed. The only flaw in the interior is the sagging headliner. The outside only has a couple paint chips near the sliding side door. Original miles on it are 38,800. The family is trying to sell it for grandma because she doesnt want the thing. Dad and my uncles are asking 4000 for it. What do you guys think?

    Here are some pics.

    Put it on eBay. Some church organization should be interested in it.

    My old man isnt real keen on the whole Ebay thing hes worried about getting screwed over the internet. Sometimes he acts like its the worst thing ever...but it sure is nice when I can order his harbor frieght tools online.

    Nice!!

    WOW!...thats an original van thats been kept up nicely!..not sure if you could get 4 grand for something that old or not,but it looks like its worth top dollar--that is about as rust free as they get!..makes my 81 G10 look like a boneyard refugee!:doah: ...that thing looks like brand new,and has all the goodies like rally wheels and dual A/C,and heat,etc..should make it a desireable van to own for some enthusiast..

    I'd put it in "Hemmings Motor News" or similar site's listings..thats where all the people who want minty older cars and trucks go in many cases..:crazy:

    Other than the obvious of it being soooo clean for it's age, I don't know what vans are worth. It's got to be worth that to someone out there. I second the ebay thing. At least if it doesn't hit your reserve, you've got a good idea of what it may go for.

    :eek1: WOW!! :eek1:

    I have never seen such a clean van from the 80s! Awsome looking, and it has quite a few options too.

    Put it in an add for $4000 or best offer.

    NADA says:

    Low - 1900 Average - 4200 High - 5200

    (that includes the 5% value add for factory AC)

    Ratings explained:

    Low Retail Value
    This vehicle would be in mechanically functional condition, needing only minor reconditioning. The exterior paint, trim, and interior would show normal wear, needing only minor reconditioning. May also be a deteriorated restoration or a very poor amateur restoration. Most usable "as-is".

    Some of the vehicles in this publication could be considered "Daily Drivers" and are not valued as a classic vehicle. When determining a value for a daily driver, it is recommended that the subscriber use the low retail value.

    Note: This value does not represent a "parts car".

    Average Retail Value
    This vehicle would be in good condition overall. It could be an older restoration or a well-maintained original vehicle. Completely operable. The exterior paint, trim, and mechanics are presentable and serviceable inside and out. A "20-footer".

    High Retail Value
    This vehicle would be in excellent condition overall. It could be a completely restored or an extremely well maintained original vehicle showing very minimal wear. The exterior paint, trim, and mechanics are not in need of reconditioning. The interior would be in excellent condition. Note: This value does not represent a "100 Point" or "# 1" vehicle *. * "100 Point" or "# 1" vehicle is not driven. It would generally be in a museum or transported in an enclosed trailer to concourse judging and car shows. This type of car would be stored in a climate-regulated facility.
