Hi All,

This '87 B150 is my first van, which I got to haul around motorcycle stuff. It had been a delivery van for The Book Shop in Chapel Hill NC at one time. The body was rough but rust free when I bought it for $1600. The front bumper, hood and grill have changed in this picture. I'm into the Dajiban look and I always wanted 5-slot mags on something and this seemed like the good candidate. After reading posts from Natural_State, I lowered it a little. I have made some other modifications with plans for more. So far, it has been autocrossed, driven to Atlanta to watch flat track racing, slept in when no hotels had vacancies and used to embarrass my teenage kids.
The paint color is BisuitGravy like GoMango or Plum Crazy.
Cheers,
Mike

Thanks everyone.

Here are some more pictures. I have more modifications planned for it and I will try and take more pictures.
Finish the rear frame notch and relocate the upper shock mount
Autometer tach and oil gauge to mount in dash
2015 Dodge Dart seats to mount
Headers, intake, ported heads and cam swap
