Hello everyone!

Stoked to finally join the site! I've been a lurker for some time now and recently picked up this 1982 B250. A couple weeks ago the opportunity kind of fell in my lap and had to jump on it. A couple weeks ago I get a series of pictures from my van buddy and had to know more! His brothers neighbor owned it and decided he needed the room. It is a single family owned van that had been parked for a long time. A deal was struck and I drove it home for $750! Overall the thing is in excellent shape and only needs a few things. The interior is fair and only missing the rear bench/sofa. The odometer reads 60k and I would be willing to bet it is fairly accurate. All the lights/gauges work as they should and the AC clutch still activates. The only serious things it needs are exhaust related. The drivers side manifold needs replaced and probably new muffler/cat. Very excited to get this thing back on the road! "Officially" my first van! Check her out!

The first 4 pictures are post clean after removing running boards and blinds. The rest were what I was sent initially

Thank you all for the warm welcome and I can't be anymore excited about the purchase! I will have to start a thread in readers rides so I can keep a log of everything I'm doing to the van. Such a blast to drive!

Thanks again!
Drew
