A modded Mercedes O 319 Minibus
In the 50s Mercedes produced a light truckcommercial vehicle called to L319. It had variants including a minibus version dubbed the O319.
RM Sotheby announced the sale of a 1959 O319 for sale. Sure looks interesting by the description.
Reportedly the air suspension has not been borrowed from the Mercedes Benz range and is from another vendor.
Autoblog also reports the front seats come from a second generation Acura CL.
Having such beautiful lines with modern touches, this is Singer Porsche equivalent in Camper vans. What more could you want.
Though there is no reserve price indicated, it is expected to be sold between USD 175,000 to USD 200,000.

A similar van was lying around in Mumbai - was in good condition a decade ago. Not sure whats happened to it now.
