It’s what the show’s about, finding treasure in other people’s trash.
Well, now the “American Pickers” have discovered a piece of Aerosmith’s history in Chesterfield, MA. The guy they bought it from said the 1964 International Harvester Metro van came with the land when he bought it from someone who had a connection to Aerosmith. And, wouldn’t you know it. They were able to get in touch with one of the founding members of Aerosmith who confirmed it is in fact the van they used in 70s before hitting it big!
So, how much did the American Pickers get it for? $25,000!

Proper interesting this… A piece of rock ‘n’ roll history involving Boston band Aerosmith has been found on the other side of Massachusetts. In a recently aired episode of the hit History Channel show, “American Pickers,” hosts and antique scavengers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz tracked down the band’s original tour van in Chesterfield that the group used to schlep to gigs around New England in the early 1970s. #aerosmith #rocknroll #heritage #history #tourvan #gigs #concerts #gigguide #aerosmithfans #aerosmithconcert #newengland #boston #music #musicindustry #newengland #americanpickers
