Wow Munz....thanks for posting this pic. The only picture I had from "before" is the side shot I posted. I like this rear shot. Thanks.

The Bad news: I sliced the he!! out of my finger on the new tank and had to stop and go get stitches. I ended up with 5 stitches in my finger. It was deep but the doctor said I was lucky...I just missed the tendon. Got my stitches...came home...put several plastic/rubber gloves on and went back to finish installing everything with my friend. Sure is nice to be able to start it without having to hook it up to an external tank.
Next on the agenda: New hoses and belts and then start to tackle the brakes (I have a feeling I will be replacing almost everything on them as well)!!!


Got to love battle scars .
Funny if i was on the job i might go home for the day ,when you work on your own stuff you keep going ... lol
Thats what i did with my 77 Lee just replace everything as you go .


I know....I love working on it. I am going to replace everything. My first step is to get all of the mechanical stuff before I start on the body work/rust areas. Last will be paint then interior.

I agree....I really dislike the current paint job. I eventually want to paint it one color and maybe add some graphics. I like the color of it before.

The color looks to be the same color as my 77 with some graphics added. Its called Dark Russet Sunfire Metallic. Not quite brown, not quite Maroon. My vote is take it back to the original color cause that van is really sweet looking in its old skin (but keep the duck!).

Good work getting her running, Im always watching for more pictures on this one. Its one sweet survivor.

Hey Munz did that picture come from Bob Morgan's picture collection ?
The picture Lee posted is one of mine from the Nations in ohio from the late 80's.
Lee sorry to hear about the battle scar.
I really like the "shorty" Gull Wing on the rear doors.
Once you dig deeper into this van there should be plenty of the original color still on the interior sheet metal.

The guy I bought it off of had a shop that installed car stereos and he had a massive system in this van and painted it to something he thought would be catchy to the young crowd he was marketing to. I think it looked WAY better in a solid color with a small stripe down the side. I am thinking of repainting it one color and possibly adding some stripes/graphics. Just don't know what color
