(AP) – The stars of History Channel’s “American Pickers” never expected to
come across a hunk of rock and roll history, specifically a piece of Aerosmith’s history, while filming their hit TV show.

Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz of “American Pickers” were astonished to find the dilapidated van during filming in Chesterfield, a town about 100 miles west of Boston. The episode aired on July 30.

The property owner said the 1964 International Harvester Metro van was there
when he bought the land from someone with a connection to Aerosmith.

The reality show stars were able to get in contact with Ray Tabano, a founding member of Aerosmith, who confirmed it was the van the rockers used in the
1970s before they hit it

The pickers paid $25,000 for the van Wolfe called a “piece of American rock
and roll history.”
