Name it Wally.

not mine, just found it on Craigslist. 225 slant six, manual shift on the column. Looks like a very clean base model van, ripe for a project.

Lots of potential there for a great starter project at a fair price. Walla Walla, home of Martin Archery, my son use to shoot professional archery for them.

Yeah, great place to start. Love the manual trans. Never seen a DODGE VAN logo like that. Does the paint behind that badge look brushed on?

Good catch on the brushed on paint. You can see it is painted over the original paint job that has flaked off.

That logo was used on late 70s-early 80s DOdge vans. Odd that they cared enough to take the badge off but then used a brush to paint it.
