Hello,

Just joined up here.
My name is Avery, I'm 28 years old and have some old mopars.
I've always appreciated vans since I was young and last year I finally bought one..
A 1978 Dodge b300 cargo from my father.
Maybe some here can provide some information on it.
My van seems a bit of an oddball...it is a factory B300 (1 ton) with 8 lug wheels, factory sure grip axle.
drivetrain is a 360 mopar with 3 on the tree.
The kicker is, this was ordered in a short wheelbase (shorty) cargo configuration!
I have not found much online regarding production info and the rarity of this setup.
I'd like to know because this van is a rust free southern example and defiantly a keeper!

Thanks
-Avery

To my knowledge this is a rare combination. Has to be a heavy duty shorty for sure. Welcome!

Thanks for the welcome!
I am defiantly excited about this project.
I have a dodge station wagon as well, so you can tell I have a thing for cars outside of the mainstream.
I am looking for window-less rust free side "barn" doors and rear doors for this if anybody knows any leads.
I am in central Ohio.

Wecome! A one ton shorty is an odd duck, for sure.
