No Replacement for Displacement ...

To answer your question there are about 6 with factory 454's N a few transplants...

I have a 1 of 3 '93 & a 1 of 16 '92 ... both numbers matching

H20Toie,

I'd wager to say, if you pass, you'll never see another one like it...

1990 G30 EXT 454/400. Low mile Lubbock Church Van. All the good stuff, just like that '89

Good luck! and Van On!!

I have a 1995 Chevy 4x4 with 454 van too! I don't think there are too many out there.

In Oregon there is a ton of 2wd 454 G30/3500 construction vans, most sellers don't even list them as being different. Most ads just say V8. The 4x4 vans are harder to find, big block powered even more so.

Posted By: rob240z Re: How many g30 vans with 454's on here? - May 14th 2019 1:05 am
Unfortunately I only have one. It's just the same van that keeps changing every few years. blush

My 83 G20 has an 8.1 out of an 02 Express swapped into it. Does that count?

You diiiiid WHAT?!? 8100?? Holy smokes.. and 83G20, you've experimented with almost everything under the sun with your van. 👍 (Short of Cadillac power that I'm aware of) Have you crafted everything from the grille back to quick release yet? 😜

Never personally seen a factory big block G van before, and I've been in and out of self serve junkyards for 20 plus years & always peek at g30's panels/cubes/RVs. 350's and occasionally 400's. Ditto for Dodge Tradesman & the like.. All small block. I will say on occasion I DO see G units brought in already missing the driveline. Never really occurred to me to look at the decal under the hood. I speculate to say some junkyards will torch out a 454 and stash it for their own giddy. Now... Econolines with 460's? Seen masses of those. Ford put 460's in darn near everything.

I have 2 factory 454 vans a 92 & 93 …. no there weren't many made.

You guys and your big blocks....lol. I guess I will score a 427 out of a dump truck and throw it in AstroCreep..not a Merlin but twice as heavy..lol

Working on it.... 92 EWB with a 78 Pathfinder conversion stuffed into it... right now it has a 402 till I get the 454 built.... externally the same.... 402 was to make sure everything fits, operates, and drives well.

H20Toie please check your pms. Thanks.

I have been lurking for about 6 months, first post. I have been following frscke1's build for most of this time. I guess I need to do an intro post somewhere. I just bought this week a 92 extended body, 12 seater Beauville 454. Its a fun story. The Vin definitely shows it is a factory 454. Ill post picas when I figure that out.

I do a lot with vans, have 12...Ill make an intro post somewhere, not sure where yet but just wanted to acknowledge that I think I may have one of the 16 454 extended body vans that friscke1 mentions. So jazzed

Cool, looks like it worked! I just updated my comments with 4 pics...Not rocket science to add but had to figure it out.
Posted By: frscke1 Re: How many g30 vans with 454's on here? - May 05th 2021 5:51 pm
Yes a Tonawanda big block .... excellent ! Way better than a Detroit big block ...

Does it start with 2GAGG39N ..... ?

Pic taken at Phoenix Raceway ... it used to have 454 and pink to purple strips down the sides ..

Nice, what kind of gas mileage do you guys get on them 454's? Growing up in the 70's, it was awesome to see somebody open a car hood and there was a 396 or 454 in there.
Posted By: frscke1 Re: How many g30 vans with 454's on here? - May 06th 2021 3:05 am
14 mpg ... the overdrive tranny... H20 does yours have the 4L80E ?

I never realized how long those back windows are.
Posted By: Vanattic Re: How many g30 vans with 454's on here? - May 06th 2021 2:05 pm
Yes. This is my VIN. 2GAGG39N3N4102843.
Posted By: Vanattic Re: How many g30 vans with 454's on here? - May 06th 2021 2:07 pm
Yep, its an easy way to quickly tell the extended body vs the standard G20 body

That's because they're so long you normally can't see them all at once.
lol

Hello everyone,
I just found out about this van and... well. I need one :-D

Any of you who know about one for sale ?
Auto & TBI 454. 4x4 would be very sexy but not a deal breaker.

Thank you so much for your time,
John
