ExPo Classifieds: A Toyota 4×4 Van for $7,500

If you’re itching to get on the van life plan, but don’t have $100,000 laying around for a sprinter, or $60,000 for a clean Vanagon or E-Series then we have just the thing for you. This 1987 Toyota Van has four-wheel drive, fresh Bilstein shocks and coils, a new set of General Grabber AT2’s, and most importantly a list price of just $7,500 USD.

The seller states that this Toyota Van LE has 175,000 miles on the odometer with the factory five speed transmission and a transfer case for 2-high, 4-high, and thank the van gods even 4-low. It has a factory fridge and ice maker, though the owner doesn’t say if it works or not, as well as two mid-swiveling captains chairs and a reach bench seat. There are climate controls for both the front and rear of the van, but the air-conditioning system does need a recharge. Condition is described as having the “typical interior and exterior cosmetics for a 32 year old van but no serious issues”. I have to be honest, it’s hard not to grab this Toyota for myself, as it is undoubtedly a huge bang for your buck when it comes to options in the van world these days.
