AN ARTIST is driving a 34 foot long van that he built over 30 years ago. The Cruiser is an 8-wheel, incredibly long and colorful van that seems to defy logic. Most parts on the Cruiser are custom, but Ivan notes that the part under the front is all stock.

In 1974, artist Ivan Benic had a dream to build the ‘wildest van in the world’ – which he calls the Cosmic Cruiser. Within four years, Ivan, from Ontario, Canada, had transformed the van into a 34 ft long masterpiece.
The Cruiser is an 8-wheel 10,400 pound (4,717 kg), incredibly long and colorful van that seems to defy logic.Standing tall at 6 feet (1.8 meters), the Cruiser has 400 hp under the hood. Ivan says that, once you get it up to speed, fuel economy “isn’t that bad.”
However, we don’t know much about the engine or drivetrain, but this custom van was equipped with dual axles in the back as well as dual steering gear in the front.
