We have had this one since 2000, It was the First Kubvan I had seen it took me 5 years to convince the owner to sell it to me.
I bought it from a guy that bought it off the lot from a car dealer.
The dealer had bought a dozen of them at auction when Canada Post started to retire them.
They were all on a lot in Victoria one day he stopped and looked at them and thought they were asking to much ($2000.00)
He went back a week later and all but this one were gone and still at $2000.00
I bugged him for 3 years he got tired of me so found me another unit in Vancouver which I promptly went and bought.
2 years later he got tired of this one and we have had it since. I put a 5 speed transmission in and have replaced the engine twice.
It has the 1.6 turbo diesel runs like a top and was freshly painted in 2009
