This thing was previously owned by an expo portal member. Story was he was parked on a snowy road and a semi slid into it, pushing it into a light pole. Insurance totaled it out. He said it might need a new front axle (not mentioned in the sale post if that was ever needed/done).
I was super tempted to buy it went it went up for auction on copart... ended up selling for $16k, if I remember correctly. Still a steal of a deal for a ujoint 4x4 van. I figured it would pop back up sometime in the near future. Assuming the seller didn't have to do much outside of the fiberglass repairs around the door, he'll make some solid money on it.
I LOVE the body and how wonderfully that would be for a work truck. I don't need the 4WD aspect but have always pretty must lusted after that sort of interior space capacity for carrying tools and supplies.
The price doesn't seem too out of the question for what this one is.
