Doesn't walk or talk like a duck.......

Sooo......it's neither a Sportsmobile OR a 4x4?

The faux carbon hood wrap is a really nice touch as well....

Re: Doesn't walk or talk like a duck.......

This van has been for sale on and off for months. I talked to the seller several months ago. The owner has spent a ton of misguided (in my opinion) money on this van customizing it to his liking. Hood is CF and seats... are what he says from what he told me. Again, spent foolishly perhaps. Even changed the badges to V10 because he wanted that look.

Interesting that the ad mentions a CB antenna, but doesn't actually mention a CB radio. I wonder if the antenna was just part of the image that the owner was going for?

Somebody makes a carbon fiber hood for my van?? Sweet, I'm gonna swap out the fiberglass one and lose 1.5 pounds!

How much?

Don't do it. It'll melt.

Re: Doesn't walk or talk like a duck.......

The hood has got to be wrapped. I just searched for one and couldn't find one. I can't imagine any company spending money to create one.

Those seats look comfy though...

Looks super clean and well cared for. However, why someone would put V10 and Sportsmobile 4x4 stickers on a van that has none of those things is beyond confusing. What it really needs is some louvre/vent stickers on the side, I love those.
