I actually took these photos almost a year ago while working nights at an auto parts store. A customer arrived in this ultra-cool old VW bus. We talked about it quite a bit and I took these photos with my horrible cell phone, luckily they turned out fairly well. Continue reading “Cool 1960 VW Bus”
I posted photos of the UltraVan on Thursday night. Friday morning I received an email from Owen (who commented on the post) that he thought this UltraVan was possibly chassis number 538. That would mean that this UltraVan is a 1970 model, one of the last few UltraVans built, and is not fitted with the Corvair drivetrain but with a Corvette suspension, transaxle, and a 307 cubic inch Chevy V8! That is very interesting to a car nut like myself, but that is only the beginning of the story.
When I stopped to photograph the 66 Corvair I spotted this odd looking RV. The large emblems proclaim it to be an UltraVan, which of course I had never heard of. After a few seconds on Google it was clear that this was a far more interesting find than the fairly easy to locate Corvair.
