  • Description

Price: $39,000

Condition: Used

For sale is a 3 year old 13’ Vintage Chevy Step Van with a brand new engine (installed locally in 2019). The unit is permitted in Washoe/Storey, NV and is ready to go.

I have beefed up the suspension, mounted a Honda EU7000 generator (sole owner; under 3,000 hours with regular oil changes), installed a tabletop 35 lb. capacity fryer and an electric sliding glass door food warmer. All cooking equipment runs off propane (2 standard tanks will fit in the outer compartment). It also has a 24” griddle, 2-burner range and the fryer. The Ansul system will meet CA or NV requirements.

There’s a 27” sandwich prep cooler, commercial exhaust, RV A/C unit and water heater/pump (for 3-compartment and hand wash sinks) that will run off the generator. All equipment is screwed in place, but can be moved to your liking. The generator will support all equipment for up to 8 hours depending on weather and use.

All equipment is commercial grade from the builder or Webstaurant store. Electrical wiring runs through professionally installed conduit and is controlled by a breaker. 50 Amp RV (with 30 Amp step down attachment plug) will work with spider boxes or other external power sources if available.

This little truck is a workhorse! I can put out a ticket a minute if I have to and the equipment can keep up. My menu was fast casual with some fried items. The fryer is smaller than a full 45 lb. unit, so you’ll need something bigger if you plan on having a menu with a lot of fried food. The set up is ideal for Tex-Mex, burgers, Asian and griddle heavy menus. I’ve been cooking professionally for 11 years and I can answer pretty much any question you have going into buying this food truck and running it. I have references for local mechanics, equipment/accessory supply, vinyl/signage, and maintenance tips for interested buyers.
