    Honolulu,, Hi.

    So I wrecked my van a while ago and had to pick up a new to me van.
    Well they won’t loan me money and I don’t have any so I look for the best I can find for not much money.
    Thin time I ended with Chevy Express 2500. I only hope it serves me as well as the last one. My last van I had 10½year and put just over 170,000 miles on it.
    I will have a nice project of building out the inside for all my tools I carry.

    Nice find, Dirty. You can do a lot with the room in that.

    Not sure how many miles are on it, but beware the head gasket. That’s what happened to mine at 127k. And mine supposedly came out of a fleet that was regularly maintained. Wish you better success!

    Nice van, Dirty. I had an Express 2500 for a long time, it was a great van for me. You can really load them down and they will still move down the road nicely.

    Not bad for someone with no money. Must’ve traded in some forum points!

    Did you trade the demo hammer for the van 😉
    It looks like you are going to have a lot of room to store tools you just need to add shelves

    Which engine ? I just had my water pump replaced. They said all is good but the next to go is the intake gasket $$. Mine is the 5.7 Vortec.

    that looks like a good project to build out the interior. I am interested to see how you do it. I have been thinking about a truck or van for one of my leads and have not decided which way to go.

    Looking good! It is already for a Bosch Tools wrap. 🙂 Maybe Aaron has a decal or 2 for you.

    Seriously, glad you found something that works and it looks quite nice. We will all be waiting for pictures of the interior build out.

    So are you gonna repaint it or will it be a dirty white van?

    Sweet ride, Here’s a few conversions to consider. I converted one back in the 70’s that looked kinda like the inside of this. Only I had wall to wall and floor to ceiling red shag carpet baby WooHoo!!

    Mine was the same 5.7 V-8 Vortec.
