    I found a lot of information on it but haven't seen one for sale or anyone that owns one. Seems a little odd to me that there are apparently not a lot these things floating around.
    I can't even figure out what year this is. I do know that it doesn't have a key, like other MV's. I can't find a data plate, VIN or manufacturers tag without taking panels off of it.

    California just surplused a few dozen those on gsaxcess.gov three weeks back. They got snapped up almost instantly by other federal entities. How are you getting a chance of purchasing one without going through a public auction?

    I have a connection with an agency that allows me to get stuff like this. I did find a manufacturer sticker, its a 2012 model. I went ahead and bought it. I'll post some more pics later.
