Hello everyone! Returning after a bit of a hiatus. (cough5yearscough,) Had an 84 B250 conversion van when I joined here back in 2013, but my vehicle OCD caused me to sell for something else, (an 86 Pontiac Fiero GT.)

My OCD has calmed a bit, and I spent some time looking for a van to replace the 84, because I missed it. By dumb luck a friend was selling a 96 B1500 shortie with a Magnum 318. Van has just under 150K on it. Runs and drives fairly well, and the best part? Only paid $1k for it. It's mostly factory from what I can tell, but it has an odd color that I've never seen before. It's almost Gulf Racing blue in color. (Kinda makes me want to put orange stripes on it. lol)

I attached a pic for everyone's viewing pleasure. Cheers!

That van would look excellent in Gulf livery. Some thought starters...

Thanks again y'all.

Dave, those definitely get the creative juices flowing. I wouldn't have to do much either. The lower panels on the van are already Navy Blue to make the darker dividing line between the two colors. Moreover, I need to do some rust repair down there anyway, and will be repainting those areas because of that, so orange is in the van's future it looks like.

I want to run a clay bar and buffer over it first to see what happens with the light blue that's on it though. Kinda hoping the bad areas come back with some work, and it gets the slightly darker look back that's on the inside areas where the sun doesn't hit.

Sounds like that will work out perfectly! I look forward to seeing it done.

Thanks lukester.

I think I'm gonna find out how a SLP resonator sounds on it this weekend, or next. Can't wait for that. I'll try to post video here when it's done.
