The “Van era” was a cool time that brought a unique and interesting style to the uncommon vans of the 70’s. Cool wheels, groovy paint, and unusual shaped windows were only a few details that were commonly added to these cool vans. This particular van has a paint scheme in tribute to the Allman Brothers “Eat a Peach” album that was released in 1972. After two owners and many years of delicate care, this cool van is up for auction. With 3 days remaining this Van is offered at the buy it now price of $8,000. Find it here on ebay out of Livonia, Michigan.
Beyond the cool exterior features, these vans usually have a tricked out interior as well. This van does not disappoint with its suede wrapped dash, shag carpet, tufted vinyl seats and door panels, and its groovy bed with wood spindled columns. One super groovy feature of the sleep area are the two mushroom shaped windows. The interior seems perfectly period correct and in very nice condition, but the seller reports the driver seat has some minor cracking from age. Customized by the original owner, this van has only passed hands once, and has covered just 72,000 miles in its lifetime. Ready to drive, the 225 slant 6 is ready to take you to any jam festival, or car event you may wish to attend.
For the diehard Allman Brothers fans, and van fanatics, the paint is clearly the most important part of this van. Well I am happy to report that the paint is in solid shape after all of this time. The only issues with the paint are a few rock chips and scratches from use and age. This rolling billboard for a great band, and an awesome era in time certainly catches a lot of attention anywhere that it may go. Are any of you Allman Brothers fans chomping at the bit to get this Van?
