76 sportsman 300
360 motor in pieces I haven't looked to see why it's tore down
A727
9 3/4 Dana 60
Everything on the inside looks great. Dash is in mint condition
Captain chairs
Bucket seats up front.
Has a bed in there
Wood panels o. The inside
This van looks like it's in great shape. I'll be going out to check on it again in the next couple days and take loads of pics of both vans
78 b100
Super six slant. I'll be keeping this motor sorry but the oil pan and motor mounts are available
904 trans
I'm keeping the rear end
No rust other than a very small spot has very slight surface rust. I'll be chopping the body up today but will keep in larger pieces so if anyone need something I'll have it for a couple months before I take and scrap it or make my dogs some houses with it lol

Located in Aztec new mexico.

Phily- the slant six Super six air cleaner and kickdown linkage won't fit your 76 Dart. However, I might be interested in those pieces if the price is right. How much for those with shipping to 98466? $30 plus shipping sound reasonable?


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!

I'm just trying to figure d the phone number of the guy I got them from so I can head over and see how I'm gonna a get these home.
Which Interior would you need. Or do they both cross over. I've only seen these once myself and I bought them almost 4 months ago. Selling a few things will help to pay to get em home. Then I can. Add a more complete list
The sportsman dash I do remember er. Being black and chrome and excellent shape. Like it was garaged. I don't remember seat color and what not but they all looked great. Almost like it was garaged. But it's sitting in a field now.
I'll get you guys more info posted tonight. Then tomorrow I can start pulling parts for guys.
If I have to I will take a sawzall and chop it to pieces lol.

Well I went out there last night after fixing my niece's bumper, she had caught it on something when backing up and halfway tore it off lol. Anyways I was told the van is on the verge of being towed. So hopefully I can get my buddy to help me tow it home. I took a few pics but they are too large to fit and I only have my phone to access the net and I don't know ow how to resize my photos but I can make a post at fabo if u want or maybe email em. Idk I need to reread the rules.
So I went to the 78 don't know how to decode the VIN off the door. I didn't see a VIN plate thru the windshield.
I also didn't take the motor cover inside either as it was getting dark. So I don't know if the kickdown linkage is there.
It is a manual transmission. Shiter is on Floor but looks like an auto shifter but it has a clutch pedal. Unless I'm wrong and someone didn't take the clutch pedal. The clutch pedal just was hanging there loose not connected to cable. And the cable coming from the tranny wasn't connected to anything.
I think the mileage was 68-69000.
Seats In This one are tore up. I noticed a small crack in dash.

Got the 78 b100 home. Had to swap tires with my grand caravan to get it to fit on the trailer. Then the tire I put on from the b100, so I could follow my brother with the trailer, it blew. Ya fun times. Anyways now​ im on my way back to put my spare on, I did use that one too for getting the b100 on the trailer lol. I forgot my four way and the lugs are recessed. But I used a creaent wrench and was able to remove the spare.
Now I still have to get the sportsman 300 home. I will need a bigger trailer.
Seeing that wide tire on the back of the GC looked nice. Sucks that the rear sliding doors hit the tire lol and I'm not sure that it wouldn't rub in the front.

OK- no worries.

The air cleaner base iss till an offset van specific base, and if it fits the throat of the two barrel carb it is worth saving. I see there appears to be a cable style shifter adapted to the trans. That is also worth saving if it works correctly. The kickdown linkage runs off to the side somewhere. Does it hook up to the carb at all?

The bar that runs from the pressure regulator on the 904 does not connect to anything. I'm taking it that is what your after? The only thing connected to the carb is to the gas pedal. The return spring is connected to the fuel line wtf lol.
Also I noticed they welded on the exhaust manifold face palm.
The soft linkage seems fine. I can put it in and out of gear no prob. Feels like it's a2 speed? Can that be right? I asked about it and found it it's a67-68. Don't know anything else. I'll be back at it this weekend
I did take the radiator fan off for the dart lol.
I started taking it apart and the kids decided they wanted to paint. So I let them paint the van. Why not lol
Since it's home I can check anything you need while im home.
