That van is called Dreamcastle. I talked with the owner at the 2005 NATS in PA. Real nice guy and was a beautiful van. I believe the story he told me was he had found the van at a storage auction for a great price. The paint and van was in excellent condition back then. I have some pics of it.

Nice to see the slider on the dodge. seems like 90% of the mid dodges I see have split doors.

I just wish dodge didn’t do that weird transition under the passenger door with the slider where the bottom of the body line drops down a few inches. Out of the 3, theirs is the most awkward of the sliders. But this van is definitely awesome

Worst thing about it is that it makes it impossible to do a barn doors to gull wing conversion without doing magic bodywork on the slider.

The van didn't sell this Sunday night on Ebay. The highest bid was only $6,300. and it didn't meet the reserve. That's a real shame cause it's worth more than that with only a little bit of help !!!
