If you're interested in a pickup truck, but you also need the practicality of a van, this 1985 GMC Vandura is both. It's a van and a truck, but it's also just cool -- a rather special and unusual vehicle that's sure to turn a few heads on the road.

Essentially, what you have here is a 1985 GMC van that was intended to be used as a box truck -- but rather than adding a box behind the cab, a sleeper cab and a bed were added. The result is that you have more space than a box truck, since you have a sleeper cab, and you have something more useful for hauling than a van, since you have a bed in back.

Of course, this vehicle doesn't quite work for true van duties, since it doesn't have a van interior or sliding doors -- but the sleeper cab behind the cabin does appear rather roomy in photos. You could probably use this thing for "van life," and you could even haul around a motorcycle while you do it, which isn't a bad setup.

If you're interested, this van is being sold with unknown mileage, though the seller says he dramatically improved many components upon purchasing the van in 2006 to prepare it for a life on the road. Now, it's available from a private seller in Tucson for $12,000, and that life on the road could be yours. Find a GMC G3500 for sale
