Hey folks. Enjoyed lurking around here. I had a '77 Dodge B200 Tradesman Van that I unfortunately had to sell a few months ago. I'd had it about a year. May try and buy it back. Anywho, just thought I'd share the van's journey. This is me with her the day I bought her.

Welcome from Florida.
Sorry to hear you had to sell your van. Looks like it was a sweet one.

Thanks. I was able to make pretty significant headway on it (new transmission, weatherstripping, locks, etc.). Well, I mean, I paid someone to do all that stuff. Other pics attached. It was gutted out on the inside and definitely was a conversion van in a past life. Someone had removed the table in the back, as well as the ladder from the outside door and the spoiler. There was a hole in the roof without a sunroof installed. Only had surface rust on the roof. Windshield was without cracks. I swapped the Ford mirrors out for street van mirrors (it had the holes already) and put period correct seats on it. Also swapped out the grill and added the D-O-D-G-E letters. Mechanically was damn solid.

Not the greatest pictures taken from the sale posting, mainly because I didn't want to sell it.

That's wicked cool. Maybe you can get it back or maybe the van Gods will bless you with an even sweeter van.
