Hello all! I'm new to the forum so I hope this is the right place to post this. I'm trying to gauge interest in my 1979 short wheelbase G20 Van. I don't have any pics at the moment but I can provide if the interest is there. This was my fathers van and he owned it since 1979 brand new. He started a body off restoration about 15 years ago and got it painted and back together and running good but never finished the interior. I took it over about 2 years ago and planned to finish it but don't have the time or space for it and my father does not want it back either. It's in pretty good shape still with only a few VERY small spots of rust popping through the paint. Overall it's in great shape and running and driving. Although lately it has been backfiring on one cylinder bank for some reason. Probably an easy fix. We either want to part it out or sell it to someone who will care for her and finish the restoration or use her for parts. We just don't want to see it become a beat up work van driving around town with carpet hanging out of the back! You would have to find a way to get it in Central Florida. Like I said, just judging interest at this point. I hate to get rid of her but unfortunately I just don't have the space. Thanks guys!

Seems like as good a place as any.
I'd probably come get it myself, but you're too far away from me for my current comfort level (Don't tell my wife, she'll have me packing up for us to come out there tomorrow. LOL).

We really like pictures around here, so if you can get any, I'm sure we'd all love to see it.

That's hilarious!
I actually used that as a reassurance to a lady I was trying to negotiate with.
I promised her that her dad's van wouldn't end up as a raggedy carpet van...
She didn't budge (even $25, LOL) and told me I had to take the roll of carpet that was already in it.
I may have picked the wrong promise.
lol

Hey SDMickey! Thanks. It's a V8 small block 350 with a turbo 350 auto transmission. Hedman headers, Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock carb, and several other mods. Sounds Awesome. Yes, like I mentioned we are up for selling to the right person. I'd rather it go to someone who will take care of it / finish it (and maybe send me some pics along the way:) than part it out. I'll try to post pics of the engine tomorrow and talk to my Dad and come up with a price.
