that's a pretty clean van. I am surprised the interior isn't beat up at all. I am very partial to the brown. hahaha

Question, that WW Wiper switch has a know with a rotate graphic on it? Mine has a regular rectangle knob and has never been changed, was there another option to have more speed adjustability? mine is a 2 speed motor (off, slow, fast).

I meant most of the Nomads that I've seen were 400ci sbc. I had always thought it was part of the Nomad option package but maybe not. The package included things like delay wipers, ps, pb, rear bench seats, battery upgrade, "sport" wheels, etc.
They only sold that package for a few years and the US/Canadian versions may have been different.

The similar GMC package was branded Gypsy's and are harder to find.
