1957 panel van, Amazing. hippy bus..

Post by Kustom Werk » Sat Nov 24, 2018 11:48 am

1957 Californian panel, fantastic condition, was painted in the mid 1970's for a cult movie which was released in 1980, called 'Getting Wasted' it stared David Caruso in his first ever roll, he has stared in things like csi miami and nypd blue, first blood.. blah blah..
The panel was painted, used for the movie then has been in private collections since, pretty much unused, so has been parked up since it was 23 years old. it was purchased in 2006 by a english guy who holidayed in California, left at his Californian home for 5 years then imported to the UK. It was then sold in an auction in Bristol last year.
Has had all new brakes, which work great, steering is fantastic for a og 50's bus, solid chassis never welded, 1500 strong motor, one of the nicest driving buses i've driven once you get used to the crash box. full width rock and roll bed. no rot all original panels etc, a great 57 panel then the added bonus of a crazy work of art too!. worth a look. bus is in Norfolk near Kings lynn viewing welcome anytime. Hard to price!!! A super solid driving uk registered 57 panel van would be 25k+, original color is dove blue. £29.000.00 ono.. 07979831452 matt
