What is a Chevron Conversion Van?

Postby Jumper [OP] » April 7th 2012, 1:03am

I have an 88 CS shorty that was bought from Chevron. I saw a post

viewtopic.php?f=41&t=13200&p=140393#p140393

mentioning a Cheveron conversion. I want to find out if mine was a chevron conversion and what was done specially to this van?

Google searches etc brought up nothing. Any input much appreciated.

It probably had shelving and tool boxes mounted in it for the company.
A title search will show who bought it originally.

That is how I found mines history. A vin search. 6 months and 10 thousand miles it was a National rental car. Before my mom and dad bought it.

Good luck in your search.

Thanks Chevymaher...My van had no seats, no centre console no partition. It still had the rear drink coolers and cupholders. The rubber flooring was falling apart and you could see the metal beneath. My vin search indicates it was bought by the initial owner, driven for 100k miles and sold to me for $600. It would not pass smog, culprit being rotted vacuum hose. This van is my hobby and has become my obsession.
