"THE SCHMOO"
Manufactured in Hutchinson, Kansas 1969

This Ultra Van is powered by a 350 c.i.d. Buick V8 engine driving the rear wheels through an Oldsmoble Toronado transmission/transaxle. The radiator for the V8 is mounted on the right rear, behind the mesh grill. Dave Peterson (creator of Ultra Van), did 18 similar conversions using the Olds transaxle setup after the Ultra Van plant shut down. Bill Tanner, the owner of "The Schmoo" for over 41 years, converted #423 using Peterson's design, and put about 65,000 miles on it after the conversion. He parked it in his back yard in Arizona at the end of a trip to New York in 1987, and there it sat until early 2011.
