1961 Chevrolet Greenbrier Van.
These vans were produced by Chevrolet from 1961 to 1965 to counteract the VW Kombie invasion to the USA.
It is very unique as it is the only registered one on the road in NZ, and the only one on this planet that was once owned by GREEN DAY frontman Billie Joe Armstrong!
It was Billie Joe's personal surf van he used in California, I have a copy of the "State of California Certificate of Title", VIN numbers are matching and goes with the van.
He had it rebuilt to the standard it is today.
Imported in to NZ in 2011, I am the second private NZ owner.
Google: "Billie Joe Armstrong Greenbrier van" for NZ Herald article 2012.

It has a rear engine 2.4 litre air cooled flat 6 (boxer) engine, coupled to a 2 speed powerglide transmission, specifications say 80 hp. It sounds great with a twin exhaust system.
The engine burns no oil and the transmission works beautifully.
70000 miles on the clock, but it's accuracy is unlikely.
I drove this van 1800 kms, from Central Otago to Southland and then home to Katikati with no surprises other than attracting enormous attention!
A new NZ spec headunit compatible to the Amp, subs and speakers has been fitted, be prepared for loud crisp Green Day sounds! It has bluetooth and handsfree phone capability.
"GRNDAY" personalised plates are included.
A new WOF will be done upon sale.
It would make an awesome coffee vending van (double opening side and rear doors), a camper or passenger van with bench seats fitted (will need certification for extra seating)
Viewing is welcome, test drives will be at my discretion, also advertised elsewhere.
Had a fresh WOF on 5/8/19, needed nothing to pass.
WOF inspector is happy to speak to potential buyers.
I can deliver on a trailer (North Island) cost negotiable.
I need the shed space, open to sensible offers?
