Here Are 5 Cool, Rare Older Vans For Sale on Autotrader

If you’re looking for a cool older vehicle, you may have started to turn your attention to vans, as older vans are developing a following — and they’re surprisingly cool. Well, some of them, anyway. Today I’ve rounded up five older vans that are particularly cool and exciting.

1992 Ford Econoline

1992 Ford Econoline – $14,541

The 1990s were filled with conversion vans, though not many survived to now. This one did, however, and it’s filled with overstuffed blue chairs and wood on every surface. This Econoline is also in excellent shape, as it’s traveled less than 20,000 miles from new. It’s currently offered by Frankman Motor Company in South Dakota for $14,541.

1985 GMC Vandura

1985 GMC Vandura – $12,000

This GMC van is half-van and half-truck. It started life as a heavy-duty 3500-level GMC van, the kind of vehicle that would have a cargo box mounted to it — or maybe a tow truck. But instead of those things, it got a sleeper cabin and a bed so now it’s a combination van and truck. This Vandura is offered by a private seller in Tucson for $12,000 and you’re unlikely to find another one like it. Find a GMC G3500 for sale

1997 Plymouth Voyager

1997 Plymouth Voyager – $10,250

When is a 1990s Plymouth Voyager cool? When it looks like this. These 1990s Chrysler minivans carried around an entire generation of kids but few have survived to the modern era after years of family-driven abuse. This van is pristine and one of the few survivors from this time period. It’s traveled just 21,000 miles and it really looks mint. It’s offered by a private seller in Texas for $10,250. Find a Plymouth Voyager for sale

2001 Volkswagen Eurovan

2001 Volkswagen Eurovan – $27,000

The Volkswagen Eurovan was Volkswagen‘s 1990s alternative to a minivan and it was sold through 2002. This one is a more desirable model than a standard Eurovan, as it has a pop-up camper, which makes for a usable bed. This Eurovan has traveled 198,000 miles but the ad goes into detail about many upgrades made and repairs and maintenance done. It’s listed for $27,000 by a private seller in San Mateo, California. Find a Volkswagen Eurovan for sale

1984 Volkswagen Vanagon

1984 Volkswagen Vanagon – $26,000

Here’s something of a “vintage” version of the vehicle above — a 1980s Volkswagen Vanagon with a similar pop-up camper top. This Vanagon has traveled 279,000 miles from new but it’s done just 91,000 miles on a rebuilt engine and it looks like a very nice, well-preserved example of this increasingly unusual van. It’s offered by a private seller in Carmichael, California, for $26,000. Find a Volkswagen Vanagon for sale

    • 100% agree….crack pipe all around – the Ford appears to have the white-walled tires from 1992 though, with 20k miles I’m sure they never changed them…
