New to the board, new to vanning.

Just picked up this little jewel after years of searching for the right van at the right time. I was really looking for a high end van with some history/provenance behind it but I have had zero luck with that for the last 5 years or so. This one just happened to come up for sale in a group I follow so I snagged it up.

One owner, 67k original miles, 360/727, been in a barn/storage for years. Last window registration sticker shows 6/1980.

Has one area of rust that I have found and it's in the driver's side rocker about center of the rocker. Rust free with original paint otherwise. Paint is thin in areas due to someone getting carried away with compound I believe. Van is FILTHY inside and out and needs all of the belts, hoses, etc. It has a Vantrekk grill that I have already removed and they REALLY butchered the headlight area to get the headlights to fit. I will fix that sheetmetal and move on (looking for old fenders for sheetmetal parts but will make it if I have to). Gonna put a 73 grill in it because I like them better.

Apologies for the winded post. Enjoy some pics now smile

Welcome! Nice lookin Dodge! I had a '72 B200 "Royal Sportsman" several years ago. It was a great running van...not sure why I sold it.

Bravo on removing that Vantrek grille...hideous piece of kit IMHO.

Thanks all.

Learned yesterday that the wheel flares are plastic. Planning on replacing anyway, just thought it interesting that they were plastic since they have supposedly been on the van since 77.

Radio seems to actually all work too except my "breaker 1 9" has produced no results yet.

Been trying for a week now to find some vintage wheels I like. Nothing yet. Looking for 15x10 and 15x8's in a turbine or slot if anyone knows of any. I like the Cragars but I'm not sure if it's the look I'm after on this particular van.
