Overland Classifieds :: Beartooth Vanworks 2019 Ford Transit with 4×4 Quigley Conversion

The brainchild of yet another innovative Bozeman, Montana, overland establishment, Beartooth Vanworks specializes in custom van conversions. Nicknamed “Orange Sunshine,” this 2019 Ford Transit with a 4×4 Quigley conversion was designed to capture attention. And it does. Its Creamsicle-colored decal feels like a throwback to the ’90s, and the peach accents in the interior create a splash of uniqueness. It was built, after all, to be used as a show van.

Reading a mere 19,000 miles on the odometer, this van is essentially brand new. It combines the capability of a Quigley conversion (offering a low range transfer case) with the liveability of a queen-size bed that folds out into a couch, plenty of storage space, and heated swiveling ScheelMann seats.

From Nic:

This van was used as a show van for Beartooth Vanworks for a year-and-a-half. We’re currently building out a new show van and are ready to part ways with our beloved Transit conversion. The van is currently located in San Clemente, California. If you’re in the area, don’t hesitate to reach out, and I’ll be more than happy to give you a tour.”

Ashley Giordano completed a 48,800-kilometer overland journey from Canada to Argentina with her husband, Richard, in their well-loved but antiquated Toyota pickup. On the zig-zag route south, she hiked craggy peaks in the Andes, discovered diverse cultures in 15 different countries, and filled her tummy with spicy ceviche, Baja fish tacos, and Argentinian Malbec. You can usually find Ashley buried in a pile of travel books, poring over maps, or researching wild medicinal plants. Ashley is a co-founder of Women Overlanding the World and crew member of Expedition Overland. You’ll find this Canadian-born couple exploring a different continent in 2021, and sharing their trip every step of the way at Desk to Glory.
