He Scores!! Hard to find I'd guess.

Don't tear it down too far to get it to Cherokee in October. I still owe you a beer.

So kinda havent went to sleep yet... drank alot last nite... started to work on the grille and headlight bucket before satan's a-hole *SUN* came up to haunt me.

since i didnt take alot of close up pictures of the exterior O:)
im going to be doing before and after... more like side vs side. but im only doing from the driver side to the center of the grille then reworking it and reworking it. it'll take a lil while to do...
the rust on the grille/pitts actual dont look bad after u elbow the hell outta them for a few. starting to look real good on that side.

headlight buckets... the ring is chrome bright as day...
the inner part of the bucket going towards the light is DULL as hell...
i wont tell you how much elbow grease that needs but its alot. and ill ahve a couple hours in the buckets alone when its polished back up.
no tools for this... just elbow grease. i dont want to do power tools and overdo it.

anywho. im going to bed.

Just to let you know those headlight trim rings had a coat of argent paint in them.It could be easily removed and allot of guys did this trick over the years.
The black on the grill could also be rewmoved and the grill polished out.
Personally I really like that black left in place.
A set of GM truck/van rallies would look sweet on that old girl.

I am also waiting to see what lug pattern this 72 has on it.....

A sweet older Beuville is one of the window vans I would not mind owning/driving......
This old girl can pan out to be a very nice "daily driver" van .....

Its a "Van Thing"

Congrats on the new van! If you're gonna own a TMW van, 70s & 80's Chevy or GMC, vans are a great way to go. They're the best looking ones.

There is a nice looking late bodied ford window van running around town here. It is a dark, metallic olive green and has after market wheels on it. Pretty sharp in my opinion.
