Are you looking for a good reliable vehicle with the ability to camp anywhere? Well look no further. I've been all around the Pacific Northwest without any major issues. Eastern Oregon in the summer is no problem. Hills, Mountains and Forest Roads are no match for the Zen Cube. And when you get there you can sit comfortably with all the amenities.

Exhaust leak between manifold and pipe: Find working gasket for after market pipe, $5 from exhaust shop.
Install stereo (2 decks included, needs new speakers)
Occasional misfire and idle surge
Solution: install new GM igniter conversion and coil (have ignition parts ready, needs 20R non-point distributor for around $90 (1978-80). Coil $25). Ballast resistor is out of specifications so its a necessary upgrade. GM conversion is a standard way to avoid a very expensive OEM part search. Upgrading the Distributor will also eliminate frequent need to set the timing as the points wear.
Interior Minor work. (paint, light covers)
Carpet needs cleaned, but ideally wood laminate is only about $20 and easy to install.
Rear door only locks from the inside, Needs internal mechanism for key to function.
The fiberglass shell is what makes the Chinook such an amazing little camper. That and its built on a Toyota HiLux pickup--One of the most dependable vehicles on the road. Light weight and easy to work on this dependable little ride will not leave you disappointed.
At only 17 feet long you can make a U turn anywhere--including skinny forest service roads on sides of mountains. At 7' tall you will be able to go places most campers cannot. Low over hanging branches in the forest, city parking lots, drive thru's are no match. Its very easy and fun to drive.
They made three different style Chinook's that year. This one was the best package with the most amenities. I think that's why this has three stripes and most only have two.
Don't let this honey slip by!
