    Default Hostess step vans

    Curiousity got the better of me this morning...

    I started thinking about all the step vans from hostess and I found out that Hilco has offered 2233 of them on a liquidation sale but they are only selling them by the entire fleet or location. I found the flyer under the liquidations tab on Hilco's website. The closest location to me is Lenexa, but I dont know what I would do with 22 vans....

    Does anyone know how many of those vans have 4bt engines in them? Perhaps if they don't sell, we may be seeing some more engines come on the market!!!

    The whole fleet of Hostess vans up the road from me are gassers. Frito-lay has taken over their building. Also, there is only a couple of the Frito trucks in the whole state of MS that are 4bt. Everything else is 6.5 , gassers or the sprint vans.

    I figured as much, when they delivered to the hospital I work at, the guy had a gasser truck, but he said a few of them were diesels.

    I work in Lenexa might be able to check it out for you. of course there is not much time left. but ya there is a pretty large diversity and many using the power stroke or 6.5L chevy from what i have seen. the higher end trucks like UPS or Fedex in this area seem to still use the cummins but a newer more expensive models.
