Okay, what am I working with here...
74 with two sun roofs one front one back, Sun visor (sitting in the back) Molded in flares and side effects (front Broke off) Shaved door handles (side and back) Shaved marker lights (with small dot replacement) Big ass windows (not digging that) Dual side exhaust with tips, Frenched in radio antenna, Small door over gas cap, Tube grill (not digging that ether) Plywood lined interior (I like that, will use these as patterns after I wire and insulate inside) Plywood bulkhead (weird) Crome instrument panel, Crome steering column, Pretty sure the dash is hashed, Crome front cowl (junk) Front wheels 265/50r15, Back wheels 295/50r15, 318 motor will see if it's worth saving after I get it running. Pearl white paint. I'm thinking with the flame colors and wheels this would but it as a early 90s build??? I think it was lowered (mabey)
Overall I dig it, I would like to see the big side windows go away. Some sort of a phantom grill and some better period correct wheels. The one side in the back leanes hard so some re-arching or new leaf springs, Is there a disk brake wrecking yard option for the front end? Some 4" side pipes for a killer sound.
And maybe the 440 out of my old motorhome.

(Sorry) These are the only pictures I have right now. I grabbed it in Manteca, CA and dropped it in Reno at a buddy's house. Will start on it this spring.
Any ideas or encouragement would be greatly appreciated on this one.

yo! Jerry!

Overall I dig it, I would like to see the big side windows go away. Some sort of a phantom grill and some better period correct wheels. The one side in the back leanes hard so some re-arching or new leaf springs, Is there a disk brake wrecking yard option for the front end? Some 4" side pipes for a killer sound.
And maybe the 440 out of my old motorhome.

! /\ YES /\ !

If it's a 5x5.5 bolt pattern, 3rd Gen B van spindles, disc brake backing plates? I'm thinking the body style change in the '77-'79ish years was mostly cosmetic and sheet metal?

If I can still make it out to the Yard in the am, after Doc's, I'll snap a few pics of the 88 B250 disc brake setup, still need parts!
