Oh I know exactly where that is. Used to ride by there all the time.

Beautiful photos as usual. Seeing all the typical OPC worthy details, weathering, stickers/ decals and odd mods to name a few, I can imagine you took many more than the three photos here.

That is one mean Sportvan. Would look even meaner with a tattered set of slotmags.

THAT COUNTRY SQUIRE WAGON BEHIND THE VAN... o__o

methinks the chevy van is among the rarest of the '60s cab-overs.

and so profoundly photogenic.

this one looks solid underneath, but how about those waterfalls of rust?! i think we've got some drainage issues in those roof gutters.

oh, how i furiously approve of the two-tone.

i find all cab-overs pretty much irresistible, but then i think about how unpleasant it must be sitting on top of that front axle for any length of time and wonder how long the novelty would last.

but surely such a minimal, utilitarian design has some functional merit, right? what's the ultimate way to experience one of these? maybe just go live in it down by the river.

...in which case, i'd probably opt for a few less windows.
