Just spoke with owner Dave. It is a 1990 to 1993 GM Vortec crate motor: no emissions at all. Does anyone know what I would need to make it legal in CA ?

That is really clean

A miracle. My guess is it would need all 50 state required smog equipment that was available on that van when new in 1990. It had 49 state smog equipment at some point since it wasn't an original CA van. That van was also Fuel Injected so if its not, that thing will never pass visual inspection or tail pipe test. My 79 van was owned by the same owner its whole life. At one point, he changed the van from a 2 into 1, to a true dual set up and the smog place made him change it back since it never came that way.

Good luck.

Or just live in a place that doesn't require smog checks...

Ain't that the Truth, It seems the last 6 months when I find something decent or nice; it would be a nightmare to register in California . The worst. mad

SD- do you ever drive around the city looking for vans? I mean recon style where you’re going through neighborhoods scoping out vans? You’d be surprised what you find. My friends and I have found many vans this way, sometimes you get lucky and some one wants to sell one.

Deathorvictory; good idea bro. I live in rural San Diego and when I'm not working ; I really don't go "down the mountain". If you saw pics of my home ; you'd never guess I lived in S.D. A couple of weeks ago I posted an old school 60's I saw in an older storage yard; too bad it wasn't a 71'-75' !

I hear yah brother. Good advice. I was really diggi n' that Viper Red 1990 Shorty in Milwaukee; your advice is always spot on and my buddy who does smog said it would be a nightmare and pass on it and wait for the right van.

You always give good advice and I appreciate everyone who has reached out to me. I haven't been a "True Vanner" since 1982.
