Never seen one of these before, but it's pretty damn cool (in spite of the questionable quality of the interior work): https://albany.craigslist.org/cto/d/galway-1965-ultra-van/6816241359.html

Cool although kinda questionable selling tactics about making it an auction

Very cool, although my Wanderlodge weighs 360000 pounds and this one weighs less than 10 per cent of that. I know which one I want to have an accident in.

Im gonna go out on a limb and say the seller doesn't already have a $15k offer.  Check back in a week or so, I predict it is still available.

These are so cool. There used to be one in the basement of the Lane Motor Museum.

I love it. Not $15k worth of love, but I do like it - especially the headlights.

For $15K (or more...) I'd want a hell of lot more information and pictures.

Exactly, not sure I'd be ok with putting in bids off a Craigslist ad with no transparency at all.

Agreed. No idea of the market on these but that seems really high

Here is the add on Ultra Van web site

So I doubt that he has a "bid" for $15K

Oh wow, the extra pics make it look much much worse. Im not even sure those are deep cycle batteries, not great for powering much then, the stick on vinyl flooring is a horrible touch too

We made it this deep into the thread, and no one has hotlinked a pic yet?

The seller owns a blueberry farm about 15 miles from me.  He decorates the thing up with Marvin the Martian stuff and lets kids climb around in it in the summer; lemme know if you need eyes on.

I saw one in person at the Corvair Underground in 1990ish.  It was cool.  The door weighed maybe five pounds.  Neat to see, but I wouldn't want one.  Unless I had Jay Leno money.

Apparently that weight is accurate. They are said to be sub 5K lbs fully loaded. That's nutty.
