hey yall my name is aaron, im from a small town in missouri about 40 min. west of st. louis. i have always loved vans, ever since my dad and grandpa started showin me pics of there old vans, well about 2 months ago i stumbled upon a 78 dodge right in my home town. talked to the guy and he told me about 17 years ago he went thru it and had it all redone but never got it licensed again and it has sat for about 10 years under a tarp. well i talked him into sellin it to me for 500 bux, it needs a lil love but me and the family have already started pourin that into it lol. its got a nice runnin 318, and all the goodies from that sweet 70s time period. (side pipes, fender flares, whale tail spoiler, chin spoiler, and more)

here are some pics, ill be taking more soon since we have recently disassembled it in order to restore her. grin

Nice find! Nice deal...Check the VIN number...the van in the pics s not a 78! Either way, looks like a great start, and there are great vanners in St Louis to help you out! E mail vanner77(at)sbcglobal.net. He is in St Louis, and on the Nats board. And has a similar Dodge!

That makes sense. The grill says 74 -78, but the 78s had square marker lights, vertical taillights and indents around the door handles! Either way, nice buy! and welcome

yup...Montrose, Il (just across 70) next week-contact Steve-I'll bet you can truck with him.

Penfield, IL in 2 weeks (north of Champaign, IL)

Then in the winter, December Party in KC, January Snowed Party in southern Illinois, and Groundhog in Springfield. This past weekend was a run at Eagleville, Mo
Colfax, Iowa in October, too.
