That van is out of this world!
I usually don't like car front on vans but Nebula pulled it off great. Usually they look like they are just stuck on but with the charger front actually molded in makes it look perfect. I also like how the roof wing is attached. i really like it alot. Would be nice to see more pictures of it especially another front view with the hood closed. Build pictures?
belongs to slim of slims fab in cali
How does the engine connect to the driveline? Some king of fwd trans or transfer case used?
Oh God, NO.
This is just.....wrong.LOL

My #2 Van 3 days ago.
The other one, a 68 need to much of Work. I think it will be back on Street next Jear.
I welder I work with grew up in Canada and him and his brother had a business in the 1970s called Vanscapes. It was a weekend turnaround. It included full shag interior with speakers and bar and a bitchin mural on the side. You get him started on the subject and he doesn't stop. It is too funny. I think he may have christened every one....haha
Nothing wrong with vans if you like em but come on,i get a post kicked off here and you let this post get 3 pages
more like 42 pages buddy.
That's because the people on this board are the innovative guys in the industry and the trend is moving towards custom vans. It is exactly the same as how everything happened originally.
50's hot rods and customs, then early 60's customs and gassers. Then wild paint and now vans. I don't know why guy's get so worked up about the seventies coming back. It was the last era of traditional hot rods. After the seventies, things took a dark turn and cars were tubbed and painted peach and turquoise with scallops. The seventies were the last era of true hot rodding and we should embrace it as the next natural progression in hot rodding. I'm just curious what's gonna come once the seventies thing is over. I guess it will be time to go back to square one and have another resurgence of traditional rods from the 40's and 50's eras. I'm not saying lets all jump on the next band wagon but at the same time, don't dismiss it as a legitimate custom trend just as valuable as any other era in hot rodding.
ok i just went through all 42 pages and while there are some VERY COOL vans in this thread
i want to know what part of any of this thread is TRADITIONAL?
almost evryone on this site bitches a blue streak over a single question about musclecars or a few pics of them but yet this thread goes on for 42 pages? and has been on here for years?
and ive seen alot of threads where the MODS have removed non-hamb friendly pics of drag cars etc vans werent even in exitance until 61 and there are pics of vans for the late 80's posted in this thread way to practice what you all preach
and before i get the why did you look if you dont like the subject crap
i looked because i like good custom paint work and i figured id see some (which i did)
and i was BORED
and yes i was born in 1970 and even i being a youngin know the the van-in scene was from the mid to late 70's unofficially starting about 75 which is 11 years AFTER the cutoff date date of this traditonal hot rod site
go on about your business and keep building the cool vans if i found the right one for the right money i would own one also
i used to have a 84 dodge conversion van
but dont bitch at me if i post pics of musclecars from some of the shows i go to
I'm not bitching at you at all and I wouldn't be bummed on you posting pics of muscle cars or any other cars for that matter.
I don't know why it's getting popular again, but I like it.
my 60 ford econoline caught fire and burned up......there cant be many of those left around
The cut off is about mid '60s, but here are exceptions.
The subject of custom vans doesnt come up that often, so it doesnt push a lot of more On Topic Threads down the pages.
There is no shortage of musclecars, so letting threads about them stay would open up the floodgates.
Another Mod might decide differently, but as far as I'm concerned, this Thread can stay.
( as long as it stays focused on early&custom vans...)
If more discussion about this is necessary, please go to the Q & S Forum.
And no, I'm not into vans...
There is only one van I'd like to build, and it looks nothing like any of the ones in this Thread.
Was that aimed at me Ernie lol
How about a video and a link to a pic? Its my 1968 A108 Dodge Van.

Bring your Vans on out to the 39th National Truck-in.
Old Washington, OH July 13-17, 2011
It is anticipated to be the largest gathering of Early Model Vans in a LONG time.
Its Going be a BLAST no doubt!
You the guy that broke your rearend after the burnout contest? I was hearing about how much help was given to the winner, at the CofC show out here a couple weeks back.
Thats me! I was 600+ miles from home. Vanners came out of the wood work to help me. It's something I'll never forget. An amazing group! They are the only reason I made it home that sunday.
You made it to the CofC? Nice. I wanted to go, but it was not in the cards this year.
The Vandoleros made the opening page of Hot Rod online as well as Truckin web.com. Truckin had us on the opening page for a week but it's not there anymore.
Some rad stuff at the show as well as some lame stuff. Overall it was a good time.
Thanks for sharing! I don't remember drawing any lines between the "van guys" and the "hot rod guys"...hey, we all worked with the same machinery, cruised together, and had a blast. I went from Super Bee to A-100 to 396 Impala....it's all good!
