Bought this van in 2010, replaced the original motor, and have had 50k awesome miles with it as my daily driver. This van has made it to the top of some gnarly roads (e.g. Hellroaring). Been my daily driver and family adventuremobile(with 3 kids) for almost 8 years, and I'm sad to sell it, but work takes me overseas and I don't want it to sit.
Note: this vehicle is listed elsewhere, and I reserve the right to sell through non-Samba means. I will take the posting down as soon as it's sold. Make me an offer--thanks for reading!
