*Trades im mainly interested in are for a 3/4 or 1 ton truck*
Up for sale is my beloved Chinook. These things are rare and they give you all the convenience of a VW Westfalia, with the legendary reliability of a Toyota. It comes equipped with Toyota's famously bomb proof R20 engine. It also charms the pants off people. Always getting comments and compliments from strangers.
Spent the majority of its life on the island and is relatively rust free. Any rust on the vehicle is just surface rust.
It has a pop top making it easy to stand up on the inside. Appliances include a fridge, sink, and stove. Sleeps three people and has good storage. I tested the appliances when I bought it but I have not used them all summer. The propane tank is old and propane places won't fill it (I had a friend put a bit in mind just to test) It will need a new propane tank.
All in all its in good condition. Had it inspected at the shop a month ago and they couldn't find any notable problems. Brand new front rotors, calipers, and pads. The rear drum brakes are like new. I used it as a daily drive for 2 months and it never gave me any issues. New summers at 90%. Stopped driving it because I got another vehicle that made more sense for commuting.
The cab had a small leak above the windshield that has been repaired. Crack in the windshield. Leather seats are slightly torn (as pictured) We were using seat covers.
Knowing the exact km's on these is hard because the odometer resets every 99k. The person I bought it from was adamant that it had 200kms on it meaning we are now at 225.
The interior is in decent condition. Has some tears in the headliner. Currently taped with duck tape from the inside. Everything else is standard wear and tear that you would expect from an older vehicle. No mold. There is one soft spot on the floor when you walk in the door but this can be easily fixed. The cushions are old and a little dusty and could use replacing.
The paint isn't in amazing shape by any means but that is typical of a car this age.
She is ready to go as-is (once you get a new propane tank) Or, if you want to update it, this would make an excellent winter project. Come spring time you would have the coolest RV in the neighbourhood. They also make for a MEAN 4x4 swap. Still considering doing one myself.
Westfalias in this condition usually start around $8,000. I'm asking $4,600 but am open to negotiation and possibly trades for something of similar value.
