Kubvan Clan

114 known vans and 75 serial numbers, out of a possibly 533 vehicles built. Contact me at to help fill out the data. UPDATED NOVEMBER 2018

Thanks to Terry for providing me with his collected information which added 11 Vin# to this list 11/19/18

Find your van on the map, locations approximate, in truth it's like a shell game.
