      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

1978 GMC 4x4/4wd van in Portland

Recommended Posts

Not sure if it is ok to post a vehicle here, so let me know and I will delete the ad if necessary....


I am selling my 1978 GMC 4x4/4wd van for $5000. I have a clear Oregon title and the tags are currently still good and the van runs/drives very well. It can be driven home, no need to trailer it back. It was converted to a true 4x4 with solid front axle by a company called Pathfinder. They fabricated an adapter and all the front suspension parts for their conversion. I replaced some of the wiring to the starter and the van has a new radiator hoses, ignition, water pump, thermostat and starter. There is a roof vent already installed and a custom trailer hitch (looks homemade, or maybe it was part of the Pathfinder conversion?). I stripped the van down and collected everything to make it into an adventure rig, but started on another project instead.


Price includes van & all additional parts listed below.


I can send more pictures if there is anything specific that you want to see, just let me know.
