That is cool. back in the day I'm sure it was primo. Looks like a typical Dealer Conversion and the Old ad Kogon Dodge posted reminded me of Cal Worthington Dodge out in the L.A. area.
Back in the day he was a Monster Dealer; with acres of Mopar and a section just fot the Street Vans.

And of course on the week ends: Hot Dogs. Balloons and Free Pony Rides for the kids and all the salesmen wore cowboy hats.

He was a Great Pitchman: "one" of his catch phrases: " I'll eat a bug if I cant make you a deal " !! van

The windows appear to possibly have been installed at a later time. They look out of place for the conversion. I have the same turbine wheels on my van. I remember in the late 70s when the dealer lots were loaded with conversion vans. It was 1977 or 78, I went to a dealership in Monroeville, PA looking to buy a van, they had over 40 conversions lined up in the front lot along the highway. At the time I was determined to buy a Dodge Wrangler 4x4.

After he got run out of California, he owned a Ford dealership in Anchorage (mid-'90s).
"It's Cal Worthington and his dog spot!"
...and it's a bear, or a tiger, or something.

For real... That really messes it up for me.

Rusty did you ever see Cal wear his "Brock-Abrella" Hat ? . It looked like a revolving carousel carnival hat ! Spot was a German Shepard; and he had a Bear with a muzzel that not doubt was shot up with morophine and would walk a tiger down the car aisles with this Humungous leash with the trainer by his side. laugh

I never saw him in person, but I went to that dealership quite a few times (not much choice up there back then).
