This classic 4WD Chevrolet P20 van is built for the long-haul and features powerful V6 and V8 engines, three/four-speed manual or automatic transmission, with options of power assisted steering and power booster brakes.

The low cost of upkeep and sizeable capacity of this vehicle made it popular as a trade van and the model barely changed down the years.
