Wow, that is beautiful. Not sure if it's $18K beautiful without more details and photos, but judging from the peak under the hood and what little of the underside I can see, looks like it was done right. Likely more than $18K spent.

The details under the hood really make it. Only thing I would add is the trim around the taillights.

Looks well done. Did he say it was the factory motor. The smog laws are the worst here in CA.

...........from his email.

I.m asking 18k the price is reflective of the time and money involved as well as how extremely rare this van is. I literally brought it back from the dead and now have the responsibility of preserving it for the future. These vans are so hard to find because they were either worked to death or partied in until they were trashed.... So many people don't realize this and think it's just a novelty vehicle that would be neat to drive around in but it is now a show truck with a killer engine making 400+ hp in the cleanest and straightest van body I've ever seen. If your are somehow still interested I'll be happy to send you some more pix.


Welp....

I wonder how difficult it would be to get a smog certificate in CA ? Maybe frscke1 might have some insight on getting it registered w/a smog slip? I clicked on the reply/contact number and I kept getting an "error occurred" message. I have heard of difficult registration stories of folks that had post 1975 engine swaps with big time challenges and the CA smog/registration process.

when you register that 75 van they wont send you a "smog required" slip … just the registration bill every yr.
