If you find it Ill buy it on the spot and paint it Blue ... Both my '92 & '93 Vin's starts with 2GAGG39N ******

I have to make a correction ... there are 3 made in '93 and my other is a '92 and they made 16 that yr ... I know of 2 others one a guy here in town took out the 454 of his '92 and made it his paint shed ... the other is a '90 and is owned by Wedgy in TX (IDK how many there were made that yr) . But Bill says Im in his will and its already blue ....lol Live long and prosper buddy !

Ive seen quite a few vans like these that have a 350 ...but they dont count

I found a small upholstery guy on OfferUp. I went out to his home shop last night with my dash pad. I am hoping I maybe found a diamond in the rough. His turn around time is really fast but it looks like he is working out of his home. It should be ready today, I am going over at lunch time. If it turns out well, I will pull my captains chairs in the next few weeks.

Just got my dash pad back. For $180, I am happy. It looks way better than mine would have on my own.

He gave me a great quote for the captains chairs I have, close to what other shops wanted for just this dash pad!

Dude, I’m so stoked on it. I’ve already had a bunch of people hit me up for this guy’s info.

Oh snap, I forgot to upload the pic from yesterday.

The roof is next for paint removal. The remaining rust is getting cleaned and patch welded. Gotta make another payment because he’s getting ready to start the skim coats of filler, then primer. Dare I say the end near? He wants to do the door frames, and windows first so we can install the glass and interior, then the large areas will be blended in.

Not van related, but I’m beating up my daily driver trying to haul parts all the time. The van was originally going to be a hauler but now she’s just a street machine in waiting. I went onto OfferUp and found a work truck. One owner, 1984 F150, 117k original miles, 302, aod transmission. I am beyond stoked.

The emissions equipment is all present, I’m going to flush the fuel systems, replace the hoses, and lines, then fire her up to see what I’m working with. The engine spun freely and we cranked it today with a battery and starting fluid. Not bad for being parked for 10 years. I don’t plan to change anything on it other than the cracked bubbles and maybe a water tight Venturi Vent. 😂

Needs some new door panels and rubber.

Other than that, she’s perfect. So it’s time to sell all my spare parts in order to get her running and reliable, then off goes my daily driver to market. It’s a shame because that’s another nice car. A 1995 Lincoln Continental, fully loaded with 72k miles. Very rare color combination and clean.
