Hey, Hold My Beer: 1985 Chevrolet Astro Van

If there were ever a car that screamed "hey hold my beer and watch this" -- this next thing is it.  This isn't the first Astro Van to be equipped with a few extra horsepower...but...just take a closer look..  Find this 1985 Chevrolet Astro Van offered for $16,500 in Fredericksburg, VA via craigslist.  Tip from John M.



It looks like a mean machine when you get to the specs -- small block Chevy V8, turbohydramatic 350 transmission, 9-inch Ford rear end -- standard stuff...but take a look out back.


Yeah...this isn't your average mildly modified Astro Van -- this is a beast with a monster tub.

  2. couldn't quite visualize what was going on here from these photos nor any in the CL ad - would it be approximately this? (not the same van, obviously)

  3. If that thing could go around a corner without falling over I'd be all over it. Surprisingly nice interior too.
