We are very happy to present this very nice 53 Chevy panel van. The current owner has enjoyed this van for several years. He has done "Cruisin the Coast" more than one time, and has enjoyed driving this really cool street rod. It is loaded with all the amenities to make it a real pleasure to drive.   For those of you who are wondering why someone would sell this great van if it's so nice, it's because the owner got a fantastic Nomad for Christmas. Need we say more???

The interior is extremely nice. Done by Larry Preston of Irving, Texas, it was done in a very high quality Ultra leather and even has a distressed look on the arm rests and lower dash.   The seats are power and the only thing not hooked up is the heat option.   The Dakota Digital gauges are all functioning properly.    The original dash panel has been modified to open and it houses the XM radio components.   The Vintage Air unit is nicely installed under dash with the custom ultra leather to match the interior.   The large storage box in the rear is removable. It is not attached and slides out easily.       These side boxes also open for storing supplies.   The solid wood accents in the rear area are a very nice touch to this beautiful interior.    The headliner is ultra suede.   The 350 fuel injected Ramjet rated at 350 hp runs great. The aluminum radiator helps it to run cool. 

There is one flaw on the body by the passenger side drip rail in the rear.    Also just some chips on the rear door edge. Otherwise, the van is in excellent condition.    We can't stress enough how great this van is to drive. We welcome you to come and see this van in person. You will be impressed.
