I believe 78 was the only year with the old style grill & the newer style tailights.

Yup...I call the 78's "bastards" because of the one year only design.

I always liked the early grilles versus the '79-up units. They got progressively uglier in the front as the years went by.

My brother-in-law had a '77 Street Van in dark metallic green with tan seats. It was a gorgeous van. It came with the late '70s chrome slotted wheels, the same as what was on the Lil' Red Express and Warlock trucks. That is probably my favorite year, in terms of overall styling.

Yup, I have to agree with the sentiment that the '78 is indeed the "bastard" of the bunch - early grille, but the first year of the newer dash, taillights, and seats.


Van-free for a bit.

Badass lookin van, Lurksman!

Miss my '78. Love the front end styling of the '71-'77, but the interior layout and dash in the '78-up vans is nicer IMHO. I'll have another one someday.
