Small Fry: 1969 Subaru 360 Microvan

I worked with a French Canadian born salesman who lived in Mexico City and talked faster that the MicroMachines guy, but he could sell a toothpick delivery service to a hockey player only retirement community.  He once told me that half the battle is getting your foot in the door, and the best way in was with an awesome product feint...something that gets the buyer's eye, but then you sell him some other pile of junk. Find this 1969 Subaru 360 Microvan offered for $5,500 near Iowa City, IA via craigslist.  Tip from Zach Z.

 At first look you might have a hard time telling what's for sale in this listing -- I've been staring at this for the past half hour and I'm still not sure.  The seller includes a CRAZY 260 mph Kawasaki triple land speed bike, a bunch of '70s Honda bikes, and the subject Subaru Microvan, which is proudly displayed behind a Subaru 360 coupe.

See a bigger collection of random junk?


  1. I think maybe the guy just accidentally downloaded his SD card to CraigsList....

  2. Kawasaki streamer is cool bet that is one loud 2x3 6 Killer

  3. the best part of his collection is the group of Honda bikes vanman in Toronto

  4. We all want to know more about the 360 than the Sambar!

  5. Everything is for sale, Vince - just name your price.

    A fascinating mess of an ad.

    Doing 160mph on that Harley must feel like dying.
    And 260mph in that Kawasaki streamer must sound like dying.
