Hey guys,

I'm new to the forum and not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this.

I'm looking to get an older Chevy or Dodge to start working on as a restoration and camper project.

As of now I'm in contact with the owner of this 76 G10. https://portland.craigslist.org/clc/cto/d/76-chevy-g10/6241664002.html

I was hoping that you more experienced vanners could give me some tips on buying and thoughts on this particular van. Common questions, concerns, and what to look for when I go to look at it.

Thanks!

Dude said it needs a catalytic converter but other than that it runs smooth and should pass smog. Who knows though right... Doea anyone know if these are AWD?

They're usually RWD. But it is possible to convert them to 4x4 if you want a major project. If that's what you want you can find vans with the 4x4 conversion already done, I've seen a few on craigslist in w. coast cities.

I'm going this weekend to drive it, I need to practice the ol' stick a little before hand. Its been 8 years since I learned and havnt touched one since. I'm really excited about this project and I hope it drives as nicely as he says it does.
