At “36k” I’d expect the pedals, door sills and engine to be damn near pristine. Still a damn fine lookin van and quite the hefty price tag.

Deathorvictory: My "Primary" mission has ended and my New mission will be the build plan. I'm so stoked Bro. I was on craigslist at 10:30 pm Wednesday night and it was my "1st" pop.
OMG, A one owner 1974 Shorty with 36,269 mile with the stock 350 and quadrajet.

I was blown away. I called at 10:32 pm and my opening statement: I'm sorry to call so late; is it cool or do you want me to call in morning ?

Mike was cool. I met him at his home at 11:am Thursday. Dude ; his home and better yet " Garage"S" were off the hook. "THREE" garages not counting his wife's garage.
The first thing I see is the old school dealer GIANT Chevy "OK" Service signs from 1950's & 1960's. To the far left garage; my van under a full on shop hoist where all "his" work is done. His "double" man cave has his 1950 ($100,00.00 insured ) Chevy Sedan Delivery. Ton's of his racing day pics of his 1955, 1956 and 1957 Chevys he use to run at Irwindale and Orange County Speedways. The garage was done right with tons of old school gear; wheel balancers; suntech machine etc. Not to mention his Sansui 9000 receiver and 4 sets of Klipsch Tower Speakers.

I thought I had died and went to heaven. He lifted the van up in the air and showed me what he did. We drove it and I bought it. I know I paid a lot. But other than the "3 on the tree". I'm "OK" like his sign said. At his price; Mike actually "trailered" it home for me yesterday. 3 Hour drive on his new trailer in his 2004 Chevy DuramaxDiesel that looked brand new.

I can't believe how lucky and really blessed I am. I was talking to LEE from the get go and a good part on the way home to San Diego. It looked so Bitch N' on Mike's New trailer behind his Duramax. So many people were "High" FIVE N' it on it's ride home and NO SH** !**! When we were registering it at AAA; a dude a little older than me offered $25K for it. I'm so stoked. I have to "lay" low for awhile because back in August I bought my 2013 Crewcab Silverado ( Original owner with 81K miles and "Almost" as Sweet as my 1974 G10 SHORTY !!!!!

Do I build the stock 350 and put in a 700 trans or an LS swap ????? OMG I can't contain myself.

I want to Thank My Circle of Faith and all the positive vibes you guys have sent me. I can't wait to get it mechanically where I want and go on my First Van Run in "DECADES".

I'm ready to get the band back together and go on the road. "Party On Garth" !! SWING!!!!! smile chevy chevy chevy chevy chevy

Lee: Thank You for your "Code of Silence" . I so appreciate all your advice and experience and tolerating my rants. I still can't believe it's here and mine.

As I shared with you yesterday: I just might buy that Lotto ticket. Wouldn't that Be Crazy. The pics are E-Z; it's the posting I need help with as you know,

Have to leave for work. Thanks again my friend. You're a Good Man Lee. chevy

FWIW, I had a 73 with a 350 and 3 on the tree and it had 230k miles when I sold it. Ran like a top. Just drive it!
