Now if it came with Daphne, we might be talking.

I think the tires on the truck for sale are just too big but bid anyway just cause of the unique-ness of it. I'd prefer to do a modern Ford Econoline rendition of it. Or wait a year or so and do the first and only Ford Transit-based Mystery Machine. (If only Daphne does come with it).

Re: I HAVE FOUND THE ULTIMATE VAN!!!!

I'm not fit to judge the drive angle on the rear shaft, but the front shaft missing entirely seems like a bit of an issue.

So does the bit about it not being legal to drive in VA. A list of what would be needed to make it legal might be nice. I'm guessing fender flares for starters.

Re: I HAVE FOUND THE ULTIMATE VAN!!!!

This if course reminds me of the bumper sticker: WHAT WOULD SCOOBY-DO? Then someone answered that question by posting the picture of Daphne.

Am I mistaken or is the thing steered by the hydraulic rams mounted front and rear? If so does it have 4 wheel steering? With that wheelbase and lift it would be quite a learning curve to avoid falling over every time you tried to change direction.
