Another UltraVan!

ultravan2 copy

If you watch American Pickers, Mike and Frank recently found this UltraVan on a pick in New Hampshire. There was also a nice Corvair Rampside Pickup at the same place. This UltraVan is number 233, owned by Jim Ash. He’s willing to sell it for $10,000, which is way too much, of course. There are nice, running examples for similar money and another needing work for $3,000. The last 2 pictures are of an amazing Ultima UltraVan, with a corvair engine for sale for $12,900. It has all the goodies including roof air and generator. While Mike and Frank’s find probably isn’t worth the asking, it is cool to see one of the neat campers get some coverage! Oh and if you didn’t see Jay’s adventure in his UltraVan, be sure to read his story here!

    The $3000 unit does not have a generator or roof a/c and as is it looks like an escapee from a junk yard. But the 350 v8 will move it better than a Corvair engine. I would still prefer the $12,900 unit. It looks like a buy and drive vehicle.

    Maybe he thinks because it was on American Pickers it is worth more. Dream on Mr. Ash. Stick to your ridiculous 10k asking price and it will sit there until it rots away.

    The $12,900 Ultavan appears to be investment grade. As an engineering masterpiece, I’d say buying one is a great way to enjoy your money and appreciating asset.

    I saw the show which this was shown on, I think that guy was out of his mind with his asking price. This last spring the Wife and I actually went to Iowa to the American Pickers shop, and the wife and I are making plans to go to the Tennessee shop someday soon!

    I AM Jim Ash. I own Ultravan #233, and I live in New Hampshire, but this unit is CLEARLY not mine. My unit is NOT for sale. Somebody needs to get their fact straight.
