After 2 years of searching high & low for a suitable project van I finally found one. It is rust free but has a lot of dings & dents that need attention. It has a 318 with 727 AT, factory A/C.
The A/C is missing some of the hoses, drier bracket,The van is also missing the front hood chrome. I assume the heater core is bad because the hoses are bypassed.
Overall I'm very happy with the it. There is a very long list of things that need fixing, such as the dip stick tube being broke clean off in the block. Left front fender is crunched, the windshield washer is doubling as the radiator overflow, valve covers bubbling crude etc etc. This van should keep me busy and out of trouble for a long time!

Sounds like you have your work cut out for you but that's half the fun anyway.

Thanks Everyone!

What do you think about these mud flaps? Should they stay or go?

I didn't like them at first but they are growing on me.

If your not gonna run wheel flares keep them. I'm honestly not 100% sure on the front but the ones on the rear look real good.
