2013 Chevrolet Express 4500 Custom Vendor Truck (SOLD)

This unit has already been SOLD.

You are looking at a one of a kind, custom designed vendor truck for selling goods anywhere you would like! This is a 2013 Chevrolet 4500 6.0 L Express that was converted into a mobile retail store. Vehicle was used to sell apparel/merchandise at various events across the metropolitan area of Chicago; baseball, hockey, and football games just to name a few as well as carnivals/festivals, and concerts. We sold hoodies, baseball hats, license plate covers, anything you can imagine at a concert or a game. The body is in excellent shape and has no rust. Mechanically, the vehicle runs and drives excellent without any issues.

This is the longest and largest box to have on this style chassis. Any option larger than this would be a bigger box truck. At that point, I would have needed a different license and it would have made traveling in the city much more difficult. For this reason, it was the ideal choice for the conversion, especially for its height – it travels under almost all bridges in the city. Prior to being converted, the vehicle was a delivery truck for a large delivery company and has always had scheduled maintenance. Mechanically it runs exceptionally well with only 103K miles on the vehicle. Factory options on the vehicle include power windows, power locks, cold A/C, heat, power steering, towing capabilities with a tow switch on the dash, and great condition tires.

Everything on the vehicle has been fully customized. As you will see in the photos, the vehicle has full capabilities to operate anywhere as a retail vehicle and does exactly what it was built to do, get attention at any event and get sales!! Day or night. There are 4 top of the line waterproof Kenwood speakers added to the drivers side of the vehicle, railings for hanging merchandise, flagstaffs in corners of vehicle, color controlled LED lighting around the entire box, complete merchandise shelving made from durable aluminum throughout the interior of the box, custom canopy built to the drivers side complete with a see-through sales counter display, HVAC conversion from the truck to the box of the truck, fully integrated electric system providing 120 Volts to various power outlets in the box of the truck.

Below is a full video demonstration of the truck at night. My phone did not do well recording at night but, you will certainly get the idea. You may copy and paste this into a browser.

This is a serious truck for someone who is looking to expand into mobile retail operations for their business and to sell to crowds directly in any kind of business. This is the perfect vehicle to use for this purpose not only because of the conversion but, because of the size and height of the box. It fits under many bridges that many box trucks cannot and is a very manageable vehicle to drive. The total conversion cost around $50,000 and took several months to complete since it required certain materials, sizes for various materials, and in general planning. I used this truck for a clothing business here in Chicago and due to some changes in my businesses I have decided to liquidate this part of my business.

The vehicle is completely road ready and able to begin work without any additional maintenance. The truck is ready to start making money for you as soon as you are ready to buy it!

Vehicle located in the Southwest Suburbs of Chicago and is ready to be viewed at any time. Can assist with International Shipping if need be.

No accidents and has a clean title.
