Just got my first van, a 1977 GMC Gypsy. I ride motorcycles test round but I needed something for monsoon season. This van needs a little work, probably gonna have to pay a mechanic to do the power steering as it leaks all the fluid out, has a small oil leak and I gotta check the fuel lines and tank, and he installed a starter recently that I definitely need to redo, i think the actuator isn’t coming out far enough bc you’ll hear it just just spinning away when it doesn’t connect, other than that it made the trek down the mountains just fine.

I’m just gonna get t running good enough to get by but eventually I want to swap out for a stronger engine and tranny and drivetrain. According to the vin breakdown it’s a G10 the engine is a 250CI straight six.

Yeah, I’m gonna need to figure out what kind of aftermarket AC to install and upgrade my charging system, this model didn’t come with AC, the insulation on the firewall is all gone, and it’s already triple digits
