1986 Chevrolet Van G30 5.7 V8 350 from North America


The blue tank is ugly as sin, but does the trick


My radiator blew @ 127,000.

My carb was replaced @ 149,000.

Muffler @ 156,000.

Fuel pump @ 170,000.

Heater core @ 170,00.

General Comments:

It has all the comforts of a tank. It is built to get you from point A to B and that's all.

Handles surprisingly well.

Sputters off the line thanks to the temperamental carb.

Once she crawls up to 50KMH she really goes.

Need to feed the engine 1Litre of oil every 2500KM.

Bought the van for cheap, and plan to get me nickle out of the ugly girl.

Nice thing about owning a Chevy is that parts and mechanics are readily available, and usually reasonably priced.

She's not pretty to look at or comfortable to be with, but she brings me home and makes me money. It is a happy marriage until my accountant tells me otherwise.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
