Tried searching but couldn't find any info on whether or not a dash & doghouse from a 1975 G10 will be compatible with a '78.

I think I can make it work without too much fuss but does anyone out there in Van Land know for sure before I start taking things apart and pulling my hair out?

Well, I don’t know for sure because I’m new to the game. I have both a ‘77 and a ‘78. I can take some measurements of the dash, doghouse for a comparison. Since bodies are the same, the size may be compatible. It’s what has been rearranged in The wiring that that might cause the problem.

I’ll take a look next week and report back.
I’m doing a grill/bumper changeover on the two.

Interesting to see if the dash will go.

Right on, thanks! Converting the grille & headlights is low on my to-do list but I managed to find a '75 at a salvage yard and brought home enough parts to do it once I find a front decent bumper.

I may go back to grab the dash & doghouse just for the hell of it (and because my dash is trashed and I have high hopes). If it works, it works. If not, I'm sure I can sell it for what I pay for it without too much trouble.

Nice. I bought a running donor van for $350. Sold the 350 engine and 400 trans for $250. The 12 bolt rear is on Craigslist. All the rest of the van I get for free. I’ll strip it, an get $150 for the shell.

Wish I could find more.

Hi Scrojira, what did you do with the dash, did you go back to salvage yard and purchase it, did you install it, if you don't want it, can you tell me what salvage yard? I need a dash for my 76 chevy

'75 dash & doghouse are resting comfortably in my garage and I've already got a few friends hounding me for them if I don't use them. Keep looking!
