Metro Sighting

I live outside the mountain town of Taos in northern New Mexico. Yesterday I caught two brief glimpses of a Metro Van, one in Taos Canyon, the other in town in traffic. It looks like it has been converted to four wheel drive and might possibly be set up for adventure travel and camping. I'm wondering if it belongs to anyone who frequents this web site. I'd love to see it close up!

Metro vans are getting to be quite rare and so expensive. The food truck industry is buying them all up and cutting the Metros up to make them into street food trucks.
I had my focus on a rust free dual rear wheel Metro over on the West Side. It was a garage kept clean unit with a title. I bid on the Metro at $5000. The next offer was for $7000 and it sod for $10,000. I know where a retired SnapOn Metro is parked in Alberta.

They turn up here fairly rust free often enough and sometimes for an affordable price. Maybe one of these days I can pick one up. I really like the idea of an RV conversion. I met a guy with a nice old DIVCO that had been done like that, he sold custom leather clothes and drove all over the west in the summertime going to craft fairs to sell his goods.
