Zombie Hunter: This custom 1964 Chevy 4×4 van is a true monster machine
Although it doesn’t have the curb appeal of the Wild Cherry van—or come with a twisted tale of ownership that’s still mystifying—this custom 1964 Chevrolet 4×4 “Zombie Hunter” is definitely wild.
Offered on Facebook Marketplace in Reno, Nevada, the monster van is as much Ford as it is Chevy. Built on a 1965 F100 4×4 frame—the seller calls it an F150, but that didn’t arrive until years later—the truck wears the body of a 1964 Corvair van and is powered by a Chevrolet 350 small-block V-8 with automatic transmission.
Lifted to stepladder height and wearing chunky off-road tires, the custom van is decked out with huge “Zombie Hunter” bumpers that barnfinds.com surmises are “perfect for zombie flattening or pushing left-lane bandits out of the way.” The Chevy-Ford also has a machine gun up top, which we assume is non-functioning.
An image of the engine shows an aluminum intake manifold, Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and Mickey Thompson valve covers. Inside, the van wears wrap-around bucket seats, a tilt steering column, aftermarket steering wheel, and a clean-looking aftermarket instrument panel.
There’s a single bench seat in back, along with a wood floor panel that appears to be stained with bloody handprints and blood spatter. There are also spent casings scattered about, which makes you wonder who prevailed in the van’s last human vs. zombie encounter.
The seller promises that the $9900 Zombie Hunter “runs good and can reach highway speeds.” Let’s hope so, especially if that machine gun doesn’t work.
