Van Pershing - Greenbrier - Tucson, Arizona
Project: Van Pershing's Greenbrier
   
This 1963 Greenbrier (110/4-speed) was obtained by the Pershing family around 1975 when they lived in Colorado. It was used as the family car for about 15 years and 140,000 miles. I was replaced by a Suburban and ended up with a friend who used it as a Boy Scout hauler for a couple of years and then parked it in his garage until April 2018 when he willed it back to the Pershings in pretty much the same condition as when it left home.

The Project returns Home - April 2018

Ready to come back home to Tucson

Home at last!

The luggage rack is from a Vega Kammback

The original rear seats were removed and an L-shaped seating arrangement was configured. Storage under the seats and enough seatbelts for four.


Seat backs and a little filler panel can be converted to a bed in a matter a few seconds.

The rear cargo area was equipped with false floor that allows for storage of the spare tire and other items needed for the trip. It tilts up for easy access to the engine lid and battery.
