Vehicle Original VIN : 877-546-8723
This 1962 Grumman Kurbmaster Step Van Restomod is a cool industrial hauler. And beneath its classic-style engineered patina is a fully adjustable air ride suspension, five-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, a distinctly custom interior, and a fuel-injected Hemi V8. So this is already an awesomely attractive Mopar before you know the celebrity connection.
Those who follow Rutledge Wood will instantly recognize this special panel van. In fact, while he’s had a love turning these delivery vehicles into restomods, this build has under 450 miles on it since completion. This one also has a touch or rat rod style. You see it in the adapted Buick front bumper and cool patina that’s engineered to look like they found this one parked out behind an old marine shop. And when you merge the idea of rat rod and restomod, you get extra-cool upgrades, like the LED headlights. And the Forgeline wheels are staggered to give you an extra meaty rear set. Of course, the best stance comes from being able to dial in your ride height with the full air ride suspension.
The slide-back doors are pure industrial cool, and they are your gateway to a surprisingly conformable interior. After all, you expect a classic panel van to have old seats turned hardy by decades of service, but this has a pair of modern leather-trimmed buckets borrowed from an SRT-8 Mopar. They even power adjust. There are useful details hidden within plenty of vintage style. For example, you have a classic-style Bel Air steering wheel, but now it’s on a tilt column. And the Ridetech air-ride touchscreen controls are hidden in a classic lunch pail. There are some pure modern upgrades like the Autometer gauges, push-button start, USB charger, and Mopar floor shifter. There are even provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) This one is pretty darn cool as-is, but we bet all that space in the rear and the clean diamond plate floor is getting your mind racing. Maybe you want to turn this into an ice cream truck? Maybe you need the coolest delivery van around? Or maybe you’re the most unique camper around. The possibilities really seem endless because of all the upgrades under the skin.
Tucked back in the engine bay is the 6.1-liter Hemi V8. A modern Mopar powerhouse like this means it works with terrific factory features like fuel injection and a five-speed automatic transmission. You also have a custom chassis, an independent front end, a four-link rear, and four-wheel disc brakes. It’s all far more comfortable than what this van was born with, and so it’s a surprisingly easy rider.
This is a truly charming look that gets a ton of attention. So not only is it a celebrity build, but also you’ll be a celebrity every time you get behind the wheel. Call today!
