Nice! The 300 is an awesome van motor. You can do all sorts fo fun things with it and still pull down near 20 MPG.

You have a great van there.


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

Thanks guys.
Got busy once I got it home and started hacking the cancer out and a floor back in still have all the finish work to do but atleast I won't be flinstoning it anymore.
I don't have a lot of pictures of the process but the major repair is done. I will try to take more.
About time to start wondering the scrap yards for seat belts and parts

Thanks I have not decided a plan for it yet.
4x4 or just a cruiser/camper.
I have axles and t cases that will go in it but can't decide if it's worth it. First thing is to get it mechanically sound and enjoy it this summer and go from there.
