1990 G30 EXT 454/400. Low mile Lubbock Church Van. All the good stuff, just like that '89

Good luck! and Van On!!

In Oregon there is a ton of 2wd 454 G30/3500 construction vans, most sellers don't even list them as being different. Most ads just say V8. The 4x4 vans are harder to find, big block powered even more so.

You diiiiid WHAT?!? 8100?? Holy smokes.. and 83G20, you've experimented with almost everything under the sun with your van. 👍 (Short of Cadillac power that I'm aware of) Have you crafted everything from the grille back to quick release yet? 😜

Never personally seen a factory big block G van before, and I've been in and out of self serve junkyards for 20 plus years & always peek at g30's panels/cubes/RVs. 350's and occasionally 400's. Ditto for Dodge Tradesman & the like.. All small block. I will say on occasion I DO see G units brought in already missing the driveline. Never really occurred to me to look at the decal under the hood. I speculate to say some junkyards will torch out a 454 and stash it for their own giddy. Now... Econolines with 460's? Seen masses of those. Ford put 460's in darn near everything.

Working on it.... 92 EWB with a 78 Pathfinder conversion stuffed into it... right now it has a 402 till I get the 454 built.... externally the same.... 402 was to make sure everything fits, operates, and drives well.


85 Chevy SWB G20 292 w/ 3 on the tree (had it in high school)
78 Chevy SWB G30 350 700r4 Pathfinder 4x4 conversion (wrecked in 08)
92 Chevy EWB G30 350 4l80e (bought with 587k miles for the body. Getting transplants from wrecked 78. Then big block)
Various minis over the years.

I have been lurking for about 6 months, first post. I have been following frscke1's build for most of this time. I guess I need to do an intro post somewhere. I just bought this week a 92 extended body, 12 seater Beauville 454. Its a fun story. The Vin definitely shows it is a factory 454. Ill post picas when I figure that out.

I do a lot with vans, have 12...Ill make an intro post somewhere, not sure where yet but just wanted to acknowledge that I think I may have one of the 16 454 extended body vans that friscke1 mentions. So jazzed

Yes a Tonawanda big block .... excellent ! Way better than a Detroit big block ...

Does it start with 2GAGG39N ..... ?

Pic taken at Phoenix Raceway ... it used to have 454 and pink to purple strips down the sides ..

Nice, what kind of gas mileage do you guys get on them 454's? Growing up in the 70's, it was awesome to see somebody open a car hood and there was a 396 or 454 in there.

That's because they're so long you normally can't see them all at once.

Hello everyone,
I just found out about this van and... well. I need one :-D

Any of you who know about one for sale ?
Auto & TBI 454. 4x4 would be very sexy but not a deal breaker.

Thank you so much for your time,
John

Still got mine 89 Beau. Have about 200k on it now. I may have found the rarest bird this winter G30 shorty 8 lug 14 bolt. I could not tell what motor, looked like the BB, could be diesel v8. Just thought to check the gas cap, will do next time I pass through. It's rotted out, but worth saving.
