You have the power brake setup in there, what radiator did you find that will fit?

I took measurements of the one in there and found a direct fit on O'Reilly's site. I will compare once it arrives. I believe my Mustang one would have even fit in there.

The tank is totally shot. It had some hidden rust holes that punched through the tank after riding in my trunk for two days. Thankfully the '75 didn't go back yet so it will have to work. I will have to have a muffler shop make me a curved pipe for for the filler hoses and tack weld her into place. That will be this weekend to run the logistics of it.

I installed the '75 E100 tank in the van today. It totally fits, you just have to get a 90 degree bend metal tube from a muffler shop and you're in business. I also used two different hoses, a flex fuel hose and a standard hose.

It also needed a longer J hook, so I fashioned some from a U bolt.

It took me most of the day to get it all figure out and buttoned up. Next is blowing out the steel line to make sure it isn't rusted, see how well it holds the fuel and to make sure the new filler doesn't leak.

Thank you, everyone. I am really excited for how she's shaping up. I was able to score some patriot side pipes in the area from a guy who just wanted them out of his shop for way less than he bought them for. I will have them mocked up for this coming Saturday. What I am most looking forward to is getting that tank hooked up this week.

Shaping up nicely. I saw you on ChopCult too. I posted a pic of my black ram van there.

I mocked up the side pipes, but was unable to bolt them in at the moment. She is starting to look meaner, a real street machine.

Water pump and alternator have been replaced. Coming up soon will be the intake and the carb to try and get her running better. I'm also planning on removing my distributor and pertronix from the Mustang once I convert over to an MSD set up.

[Linked Image] I picked up a stowaway at some point also.

I went to a local junkyard today to check out a late 70's Dodge in the lot. There I was able to score a pair of seats for $15 each. The driver side has a tear in it but the passenger looks great. I also snagged a lower air dam off that Dodge. Everything else was trash. I do regret not grabbing the rear pop out windows but it was pouring rain and I don't need them.
