Original Aerosmith tour van found buried in MA woods

The stars of "American Pickers" discovered a van that belonged to Aerosmith in the 1970s.

The 1964 American Harvester Metro van, with some sweet R. Crumb-inspired art painted on the side, was found slowly crumbling away in the woods behind a farm in Chesterfield, Massachusetts, a town located just over a 100 miles west of Aerosmith's home base of Boston.

The property owner said the van was there when he bought the land from someone with a connection to Aerosmith, which was formed in Boston in 1970 and has since sold some 150 million albums around the world. A recent episode found hosts Frank Fritz and Mike Wolfe stumbling upon a dilapidated van used by rock legends Aerosmith in their early days.

"American Pickers" has uncovered a primo piece of rock "n" roll memorabilia while in western MA. When Phil purchased the property, he told the Pickers that the van was already there.

Ray Tabano, who helped found the band and played rhythm guitar before being replaced by Brad Whitford in 1971, confirmed it was the van the rockers used in the 1970s.

"This guy is deep in the woods, he's off the grid, and I keep thinking to myself, 'what the heck would this van be doing here?'" Mike Wolfe mused on the van's unexpected location. Proving that you're never too old to rock n' roll, Tabano was even willing to recreate his pose in the photo for the episode. "I just flashed back to when we started the band", he said after laying eyes on the van for the first time in more than four decades. "Oh my goodness gracious", Tabano said of the automotive blast from the past.

The History Channel series American Pickers recently unearthed an awesome piece of rock ephemera. "It was like a touring hotel".
