Looking for information/thoughts on a cool 1978 Dodge Van I just bought.

It seems unique and uncommon, and it may have been special ordered.


It is a shorty B300 (1 ton), has 8 lug 16.5" wheels and a sure grip axle factory issue (I think).

Factory painted citron green, which is commonly seen on the macho power wagon but I have never seen it on a van.

360 engine, 3 on the tree trans.

True uncut shorty cargo from TN.

Thanks!

The underhood sheet is missing..I would love to know how this was ordered when new.
It does retain the original aluminum tag on the firewall, if I post a pic can anybody here decode them?
