The van that Aerosmith first used tour was found in a woodland area in Chesterfield, MA.
History Channel’s American Pickers stars Mike Wolfe & Frank Fritz got word of the 1962 International Harvester Metro while in Massachusetts, by the current property owner, who said the previous owner had some connections to the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Band.
To get proof Wolfe contacted Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys who contacted Joe Perry, who then contacted original & co-founding guitarist Ray Tabano. Tabano was replaced by Brad Whitford in 1971. But Tabano lived near by & came out to verify the van bring along a picture of him sitting in the van.
Wolfe & Fritz paid $25,000 for the van, but no word what will happen to it next.
