I believe it was Plato who first wrote: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” To which Aristotle added the following corollary; “And if you don’t love this van, you are trash.” Those Greeks know their stuff and there are few things sweeter than a classic van that comes with an Atari 2600 game system. I just wanna put on a Hawaiian shirt and play Pac-Man while eating Fritos on chili in the back of this Econoline. Find this 1972 Ford Econoline offered for $15,000 in San Francisco, CA via craigslist. (or $14k asking on the Bandango site). Tip from Jeff.

Ever wanted the classic 70’s van experience? We are Bandago, a van rental comapny, but we are SELLING this classic, authentic, vintage 70’s van. Pictured here is “Gamora”, a lovely green Ford who was born in 1972, and has been featured in Hot Rod Magazine. This vans is perfect for great times with special friends and for making a big splash events. The table in the rear can be configured to turn into a bed so it’s fun to use on a weekend getaway. We’ve upgraded the van since we bought it with power brakes, added seat belts, and installed a wood grain video screen (not pictured) which comes with a re-issue of the Atari 2600 game system. And yes, Gamora has been well maintained, and runs like a champ. Should last for many more years with a little love and care.
PLEASE NOTE: This is an authentic vintage van from 1972. It is LOUD, PROUD, and it does NOT have air conditioning.
Your friends will be blown away by this authentic piece of 70’s van history – the green dice are provided free of charge! About the only things not authentic in this vintage classic are the kick-ass stereo upgrade and Atari 2600 video game system. Impress your friends and entertain the same time! And don’t forget the green shag carpeting. It. Is. Everywhere. Even around the door handles! Top that off with the sparkle green steering wheel and you start wondering why you haven’t clicked the reservation button yet. After driving this, you will shit green poop! No lies!
AWARD WINNING INTERIOR: Did we mention the custom green and yellow styling has won awards in classic van competitions? Now you know. But what else would you expect from an interior that sports lime green padding in all the right places, handmade coffee
table with custom paint, and a perfectly located bottle opener for opening your favorite green and yellow beverage!
Open the back doors open and behold the awesome hangout area. Comfortable bench seating to play those Atari 2600 games, cribbage, or savior your freshly opened beverage of choice. If you’re in the mood for more vertical entertainment, the table can be lowered and the entire back of the van becomes a giant bed where you can stretch out and take in the 70s vibe.
We said the van was loud and one of the reasons are the custom exhaust pipes that shoot out the side of the van like you’ll shoot out of traffic! (Please drive responsibly!) And those tires! Nothing screams 70s van more than chrome wheels and Firehawk tires. As you can see you’ll look great anywhere you go in this award-winning, vintage van – beach, campsite, tailgate. Seriously, anywhere and everywhere.
Now blast your favorite KISS jam (I want to Roch n Roll Allll Niiight) and don your best gold chains and show these lil kids whats up when you pull up on their Tesla. Punch the gas and spew some carbon monoxide on these pleebs as they eat your dust (Unless they have Ludacris mode, well then you are screwd).
