    I picked up the van for $850 and was going to get it running and drive it. Im now doing a ground up resturation after taking a good look at the van. Does anyone know what the 10 square 1/2" x 1/2" cut outs are in the rear floor above the gas tank?

    There is a 165 lb. slab of steel that is sandwiched between your gas tank and floor. The vans had them also.
