Instant Band, Just Add Van

So, you're looking to get your touring band into some wheels and on the road. What could give you a greater opportunity for skull crushing heaviness-by-osmosis and instant cool in a more sure fire way than becoming the proud owner of the Melvins old 1972 Dodge Sportsman? It's on Ebay right now!
1972 Dodge Sportsman Royal Van, better known as the "MELVAN" Featured in many books, Cobain Unseen, Come As You Are ETC. & Many NIRVANA documentary films. This is a very unique piece of MEVINS/NIRVANA history & truly one of a kind. The KISS Mural on the side was hand drawn by Kurt Cobain using sharpie markers shoplifted from the Thriftway grocery store in Montesano Washington. (former employer of King Buzzo) This was one of the first MELVINS tour vans & was used on at least one U.S. tour. Kurt himself was often times known to drive this van to local shows, also included are two former registration's, one signed by Roger Osborne (King Buzzo) & the second signed by former MELVINS bass player Matt Lukin ! Bid High & Bid Often ,this will probably be your one & only chance to own this unique piece of music history !

Non refundable down payment of $10,000 due within 72 hours of auction end, balance due at, or before vehicle pickup (Must be picked up within 30 days of end of auction) All Sales Final
Flat tire included, free of charge!

Ok, it probably doesn't even run anymore, and probably should be preserved in a venue like the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Man, if I had an extra 100 G's laying around...

  1. This is the type of real, gritty, interesting and authentic pieces of music history that will never make into Cleveland's Rock N' Roll Hall of Blech. I can't believe that thing made it cross-country, no matter the year or mileage.
