Funny that I recognize the 2wd doka just behind the van in the first picture. I have been eyeing it for years. Smile

Here is a grey one, they got different colored stripes. I have seen mostly the white version though.

All of the hobie cat vanagons that I have ever seen had the hobie cat at the front of the door and the hobie cat lettering and logo on the nose like this-


Maybe it has been repainted and couldn't get the duplicate hobie cat? From the pic, the rear portion of the van has a different shade of white comparing to the front.

To the OP, I think I saw this one on CL not long ago. I had no idea it was the Hobie Cat model. I thought it was someone's remake of United Airlines' old paint scheme from way back in the day with all those stripes. I think it's really cool! I hope you're able to get this one back up and running.
