This HZ Sandman van was purchased in early 1988 as a roller without a motor or gearbox however the van had a brilliant body and still had the full black Sandman interior. The van as a roller cost $1200 to purchase (without the sports mirrors). The car was originally Valencia Orange with black interior and was a originally a 253 (L32) 4 speed (M20) car. I had the van resprayed in Gun Metal Grey in 1989. I remember advertising this van for sale (nationally) in the mid 1990s for $6,000 and could not sell the van as at that time nobody seemed to want a panel van during that period. The van was eventually traded on a ute as I required a ute at that time. I recall paying 18% interest rate on a home loan at one stage when I owned this van so I suppose there wasn't a lot of money out there to spend on motor vehicles.
M21 Gearbox with Impala revers lockout shifter, GTS flutes welded into the standard Sandman guards and colour change from Valencia Orange to Gun Metal Grey (this was the late 1980s). ROH Wildfire 14"x7" and 14"x8" wheels with 245 BF Goodrich tyres.
