    Default Looking for info on value of a 1976 Gypsy van for sale

    Hi, new member here. So be gentle.

    My Bro-in-law has an immaculate 1976 Gypsy van he has owned since new.

    It looks like it just came off the showroom floor. California vehicle so it doesn't suffer rust. Has had the second set of running gear since it does have 500,00 miles on it.

    Any ideas where I could find a valuation?

    I have done a number of searches but nothing pops other than some brochures for a 1981 model on ebay.

    Thanks

    I looked on Kelly Blue Book and online it dont have anything older then 1987. Look on every used car value website you can find would be my best suggestion

    Once you get to a vehicle that's over 30 years old, the value changes around. In 1992 I bought a 1962 GMC 3/4 Truck. Couldn't find a book on that, but I liked it and I paid $2k for it. The truck today would bring far more in the same condition as it was 30 years old when I bought it but now it would be 45 years old.

    The same sort of thing goes for that van, there should be some specialty books on this sort of transation I think.

    Good question. I have a 77 Vandura in the same shape with 89,000 original miles on it. I have it insured for $20,000, as it is all original and I have owned it since brand new. These vans are very rare and hard to find in excellent all original shape. Most of the nice looking survivors are restored. I guess it is up to the person on how much they want to pay, but it is a hassle finding good body parts for 1971-1977 Chevy/GMC van. Try to find a grill in excellent shape. Whew!

    Also try searching 1976 GMC Vandura. GMC Gypsies had some special options like roof vent, pre-made walls (and ceiling), so you could easily carpet it, swivel capt. style seats and I think a drink tray.

    You would, Enkie. It's the ram air hood that does it for you, isn't it?!
