We remember Mike Meyers for his funny TV characters, being the voice of Shrek, starring in such cinematic hits as, So I Married an Ax Murderer, and generally being as funny as a Canadian can be. Little did we know that the dude is into cars or at least 1980s TV cars, because he commissioned a 100% perfect replica of the famous A-Team van that owned the small screen in the 1980s. BA (Bad Attidude!) Baracus drove the van while laden with a metric ton of gold chains, Hannibal, Face, and the other weird that guy rode in the back.
The van itself is a 1983 Chevy G10 cargo van, which if painted another way would be a total creep show on wheels, but in A-Team livery it is rolling magic. The asking price is a pretty decent $20,000. It seems like if you were really into collecting A-Team stuff that price isn’t bad. Some guy in his mom’s basement probably dropped $1200 last week on eBay for a limited edition Hannibal lunch box, so $20,000 on a flippin’ sweet van is money well spent. It even comes with a DVD. Go ahead and put your socks back on because we just knocked ‘em off.
There is no mechanical info on the van but we have to guess it has a small block Chevy, probably with headers, a mild cam, and an Edelbrock or Holley carb on it. A Turbo350 is probably living behind the dog house and a 10 bolt is out back. The important stuff in this case is the perfect paint scheme, side pipes, light bar, fog lights, chin spoiler, rear wing, and turbine style wheels with white letter BFGs on the corners. George Barris also “certified” this van which means absolutely nothing to us because we think he would certify anything for a few bucks. Oh, and for good measure he didn’t built the Monkeemobile. He did built the original version of this van though.
Long story short, if you win the Mega Millions you need to buy this van. Hire the real Mr. T to drive it on the weekends and go live life to the fullest. Hell, we would even invite Hannibal back if he wasn’t dead. Face can come, but the other guy with multiple personality disorder? Yeah, he’s staying home with his cats. We don’t need that action with BA behind the wheel. If you want to solve some crimes or stop some sort of evil international plot, feel free. If not, try to pick up some of the hot extras that appeared on CHiPs back in the day…although their hotness may not be burning as brightly today. Better forget that whole last paragraph really.
Bottom line? Buy the friggin A-Team Van!
