Hey everyone, new to the site and vanning. I just picked up a mostly rust free 77 Chevy G20 short van and am stoked to start working on it. Hoping to do some camping in it as well as be able to haul my choppers around

Congrats on the van Lurch, we love pics. Once you do work on it, start a build thread of your progress!

Kind of a pain to post pics from my phone but here it is. I wet sanded the paint a bit so it’s actually more burgundy than brown.

Nice! We saw this posted for sale when it was on craigslist. I love the red color way more than that rusty brown!

Yea that must have been the ad, I saw it on OfferUp though. I got it from the 2nd owner who bought it in the 80’s and was pretty meticulous with keeping maintenance and smog records which is cool. The roof looks rusty in the ad but is just surface rust and is actually pretty solid. The main plan is to do the basics to get it to be a reliable driver(since it was sitting for a while), then to find some slot mags or cragars for it, lower the front end, and redo the interior. I’ll probably make a build thread for it later.
