I’ve been back and forth with my dodge and putting the word out that I am on the search for a new van if the right one comes along. I’m driving mine and enjoying it until I something grabs my attention.

Biggest criteria is short wheelbase no window van, no rust besides maybe some patina. Mechanically decent in running and driving condition. Ideally no interior so I can build it myself. I don’t want to do bodywork at all so I will be picky with color. I would maybe consider a longer van if it’s no windows but has to really be clean.

5k is my max for initial purchase price, ideally 3-4K

Dodge 71-93 (71-78 tradesman preferred) 6 or 8 cylinder, automatic is a must.

Chevy/GMC 71-95 (earlier preferred but not as picky with these) 6 or 8 cylinder, automatic

Ford 69-74 2nd Gen and 75-88 3rd Gen. 1988 is when they stopped producing their short wheel base vans. I like the earlier 3rd grills best but the square headlight shorties are cool too. 6 or 8 cylinder, automatic

If anyone sees something or has something for sale that meets this criteria, please let me know.

Thanks!

Just looked at that red one today actually. Has lots of rust roof and a few spots of rot along the rails and was very wet inside. Supposedly ran but they didn’t have a battery in it and they didn’t seem motivated to let me hear it run. It had a shoddy roof patch and side body panel patch and the a pillars were toast. Everything else they had there was at best a parts van.
