Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder, and that definitely rings true for the custom automotive bodywork seen here. Even so, grafting the front bumper of a Chevy Camaro onto a Chevy Astro van and chopping down the rear into a pickup truck bed is certainly one way to get noticed. Funny enough, this bizarre custom Chevy Astro van is now listed for sale as well.
Recently spotted on Facebook Marketplace, this wacky four-wheeled creation is located in Sacramento, California, and is apparently based on a 2007 Chevy Astro van.
“This is a one of a kind Astro van that had been chopped into a truck,” the listing states. “It has a ZL1 Camaro front end with BMW headlights.”
The listing goes on to state that the custom can be used for advertising purposes, and incorporates a hydraulically activated sign that flips up when it’s needed, or sits flush in the rear when it isn’t. The whole thing is covered in flat black paint, while five-spoke Boss wheels with a polished rim sit in the corners.
While certainly a bizarre thing to look at, the listing asserts that the mechanical bits are more or less sound, with roughly 106,000 miles on the clock. The Vortec V6 was rebuilt (or replaced) around 52,000 miles, while the transmission was recently rebuilt as well. The A/C blows cold, while an automatic transmission handles the cog swaps.
A few other bits and pieces include leveled suspension, new wipers and arms, new door mechanisms, LED lighting, a new alternator, a new front window, and a custom rear window. The seller states that the “interior is not finished,” although we’re totally sure what that means. The upholstery and dash look fine, but maybe the builder wanted something equally as eye-catching for the cabin.
Now, this Chevy Camaro / Astro van mashup is up for sale, listed at $6,900. What do you think?
