I've listed it here because ebay's system won't accept the VIN number that I've repeatedly tried to enter when attempting to list it under cars and trucks for sale. VIN is 1CDEG25H5G7501314. 

I bought this van here on ebay about 6 years ago (Hi Ernie, if you're seeing this!). Although I  love it, and it's been a great van, I'm replacing it, and my winter car with one newer vehicle my wife can also drive. I'm still using it as my daily driver until my new vehicle is ready. Presently located and registered in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada, right on the New York border near Massena. If the winning bidder is from the US, I'll go with you to US Customs after the sale to make sure there's no red tape. If you can't, or don't want to cross in to Canada, I can have the van available in Massena, New York, after we work out details. 
1986 GMC Vandura 2500 Hi roof conversion van. Originally from Pennsylvania. 305 4 bbl, runs great, 350 transmission recently fully professionally rebuilt (it didn't fail, the pump was noisy) 2.73 rear end. Good body, non smoker owned, no water stains or funny smells inside. Just took it on a 1000 mile trip, didn't use any oil, although sometimes it'll puff smoke on startup. 137613 miles as I write this. AC doesn't work, I have replacement lines. Heater not the greatest. Had rear AC and heat but they've been bypassed. The captain's seat missing in the pictures is included, although it was originally the driver's seat and is worn. I keep the rear couch folded down, and I've built a removable shelf that allows a larger air mattress to be used, since I've used it to camp. RF door lock switch broken, sometimes the driver's power window won't work if the door is open. Catalytic converter is missing, and the exhaust stinks, air injection system has been removed. No e-test needed in Ontario. Has a great sounding muffler. Has some rattles from underneath, I think it's the lower control arm bushings, which will be included for the new owner to replace. Small rust hole in the right rocker panel. Has an area on the left where the blue paint doesn't quite match, as well as the raised roof area. There's a crack along the middle of the roof, when it was recently painted it had rubberized coating sprayed on the roof to keep it sealed. There's a water leak at the top left corner sometimes when it rains, behind the left sun visor. I've owned it about 6 years, never winter driven, it's parked under a tarp. Good Michelin tires, trailer hitch, stereo not the best. Sold as is, no warranties. Keep in mind this is a 1986 vehicle, there are bound to be imperfections. No warranty, the winning bidder will be given the signed ownership, and a bill of sale. The winning bidder will send me a NON REFUNDABLE $100 deposit within 48 hours after the auction ends, this is to discourage anyone who thinks bidding on ebay is a big joke and has no intentions of completing the transaction. The rest of the payment will be made in CASH, US currency, when the van is picked up. The van can stay parked in my driveway until the first weekend in December. If the van is not picked up by then, the deposit is forfeited and the van will be re-listed. 
If I think of any other issues I'll revise the listing. The rad overflow tank leaks, so the coolant isn't recovered, and the rad level goes down a bit sometimes. The rad is recent, and I just put a new water pump in it and new alternator and AC belts. For some reason now when the engine is cold, the fan blade rattles against the shroud but stops after it warms up. Has a 2 inch receiver hitch on it, and flat 4 wire trailer plug. Thanks!

The van is for sale and advertised locally, I reserve the right to end the auction early and cancel any bids.

It has a recent starter, and battery. The driver's mirror is an aftermarket, the chrome is rusty. 

Vauxhall ADAM with new 1.0 ECOTEC 3-Cylinder engine will debut at Geneva

Mon, 17 Feb 2014 00:00:00 -0800

The Vauxhall ADAM (pictured) gets the new 1.0 litre 3-pot ECOTEC engine At the Frankfurt Motor Show last year, Vauxhall announced they would be offering the Vauxhall Adam with their new 1.0 litre 3-cylinder ECOTEC engine in 2014, and we now know it will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month before going on sale in the spring. The new 1.0 ECOTEC 3-Cylinder engine is Vauxhall’s answer to Ford’s 1.0 litre EcoBoost proliferating across Ford’s range, and if it’s half as good as Ford’s unit it should make the 3-pot Adam a fun and appealing option. Available in two states of tune – 89bhp or 113bhp – with both delivering 122lb/ft of torque and with a new 6-speed manual ‘box that’s 30 per cent lighter, the new engine delivers 30 per cent more torque than Vauxhall’s 1.6 litre petrol but can manage 62mpg and emissions of 99g/km for the 89bhp version.

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0700

By Adam Binnie Motor Industry 07 July 2014 16:07 Aftermarket tuning company Brabus is reportedly in charge of building a new extra-long S-class named the ‘Pullman’ for Mercedes Benz. At nearly six and a half metres long, the ultra-luxurious Pullman will be even larger than the long-wheelbase Rolls-Royce Phantom. It’s a bit of a beast, then.
