Trying to find a link to a website that specializes in parts and custom parts for my 70s chevy. In the market for overhead consoles, teardrop windows, and miscellaneous trim items. I also was wondering if there are any magazine publications still circulating that focus on vintage vans. Thanks

Sorry to say, but you're mostly out of luck. Kurk at customvan.com does the best fiberglass parts around, but he has a long wait to get parts right now. He had a shop fire last year, so he can't produce the parts as fast as he used to, and there are a lot of people waiting on them ahead of you unfortunately. Still very worth the wait, and he does overhead consoles as well.

As for teardrop windows, there are a few guys on Instagram and Facebook making them in their home garages, but there is nothing mass produced. Actually 98% of the parts for vans that you could find easily through the 70's and into the 80's are no longer in production. Best bet is to watch the social media pages and classifieds as well as eBay.

The only two magazines out there specifically for vannin are Custom Vanner Magazine and Rolling Heavy. Both are good reads.

ebay or facebook classifieds are the best for finding the vintage van parts

I can get you fiberglass for your van, 4-6 week wait. American made through an old school fabrication company but we have to order a minimum amount. I have a wood overhead console for your van also.


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave
