We’ve always said that if you swapped a beefy powertrain into just about anything we’d want to drive it, and that holds true for this 1988 Chevrolet Astro Van featuring a Tonka livery and a 350 Small Block V8 swap. According to the Craigslist ad, the Small-Block in this Tonka Astro Van features a cam tune and has low mileage.
While we would love to take this Chevy van for a spin and see how it runs, we really wouldn’t want to be seen in it. Nothing against the builder, we’re sure it took plenty of work to complete, it’s just not our style. We applaud the effort and creativity, though.
If you subtracted the scissor-doors and 28-inch rims we may be a little more open to it, but something about the color-scheme just screams Ronald McDonald to us. The interior is just as gaudy as the exterior.
If you have $4,500 to spare you could roll around with a Go-Pro, catching all the wild looks you get on video – now that would be funny.
