Hi, I was driving a survivor I just got a couple months ago (my 1st van!!!) on the freeway for the 1st time after new brake booster, master cylinder, brakes & tires to test her out and the original vent scoop broke.

Any ideas for a replacement? I like the old look, so was thinking of getting a modern replacement & maybe having a body guy custom make a fiberglass housing over it. Idk.
Have any of you had to do this before?

You can get a replacement for about $500-$1000 on ebay or most van groups.

Ouch, yeah could do that & eventually find one for $$$. There's a local Van group here in Utah but's it's kinda small. Thank you!
Curious what other people have done in similar situations smile

You could just put a standard roof vent on top and call it good. There's a couple options out there.

It says Chevy, but these are a universal vent option.

Also, don't throw those parts away. You can sell them to people who want parts for spares. Just advertise them as "Venturi Vent Parts" when you do sell them.

LOL!


Hey, it is a total bear to find these original parts. Even the hardware is scarce. I always buy doubles so I have something for a replacement when I'm done. When I do my second van, I'll go tempered glass ports and an extra sunroof!

Or you can go old school look with modern conveniences. I put one of these in my Ram Promaster van. It's nice to be able to control it from the driver seat, open and close, draw in or blow out air, change fan speeds, built-in rain sensor.
