Hi All, my name is Mike.
Just joined the Forum a few days ago.
I have a 1973 Dodge B300 Maxi Van.
I bought it way back in 1976 for $1200, it was used commercially and pretty beat up, 100,000+ miles. (318 automatic)
In 1976 I customized the inside but left the outside unchanged:
Bed, carpet, headliner, fridge, captain’s chairs, overhead console, cassette stereo, CB.
Mirrors, interior lighting, Bar hidden under the bed (How PC would that be these days!)
In 1979 the interior was removed (the plan was to re-install it but that never happened) and the outside was customized:
Fender flairs, hood scoop, front spoiler, tube grill.
Gull wing side door, rear doors removed and small tailgate door installed.
Frenched antenna, emblems removed, oak running boards.
New wheels and tires and new paint.
Since then it has sat at different locations collecting dust, rodent crap and been used for temp storage.
Inspection sticker on window says 1978.
Recently my wife stated to friends. “I should pay someone to cart it away, because it will never ever be started again.”
Not one to turn down a challenge, 2018 is the year I plan on proving her wrong.
For some reason, the Instrument Cluster was removed and nowhere to be found.
Started searching the net for possible replacement parts and ran into this forum.
I’ll be needing help/suggestions and this looks like a good place to get info.
Looking forward to driving it again someday soon.
