|This is one of approximately 100 Electravan 600's made by Jet |
Industries. I am the third owner. It was part of a fleet of seven
Electravans purchased by the City of San Jose CA. They were sold at
auction and all seven were bought by the second owner. This was his
last one. I bought it in 2003.
This particular van has the unique feature of front disc brakes
installed by myself.
