From my youth.......circa late 70's
that van is sweet,sure looks famaliar
love those a100's!
Knew where there were a couple early Econolines parked for years... went back this year to see if I could buy them and they were gone. Damn crushers. I'd love to build one with a 302, or an early Dodge with a stroker small block.
This is as tacky and gaudy as they got in the 70's, but oh my, look at that Austin Coil built blown Hemi. This was posted on justacarguy blog recently. Sorry, to anyone if it is not acceptable, but it does show how outrageous they became. Back to traditional hot rodding now.
Looking for a nice original Chevrolet or gmc van, 1965 to1969. Any help or leads would be appreciated, Tim. 1 785 506-6711
check out the classified section on vintage-vans.com
This one was racing at Muncie Dragway last night. He said it was a former school bus. Ran 12.03!!!!
I work in progress.
I miss mine!
I really loved my 69 chevy 108, might just look for another one !
Not a 60
's van but close. My 66
I know of a couple of 60s Chevys sitting But for the last 20 yr or so the guy says his son is gonna fix them up ONE OF THESE Days ??? now sunk into the ground
The Chavez-Manriquez family had a bitchen one in the '90s.
At least, that's who it said it belonged to on the spare tire cover...
Had to get in on this.
Just took title to this sweet 67 Econoline Heavy Duty thanks to my good buddy John4life.
^^^Cool, Love the slots!^^^
You got a great start . Possibility's are endless
Just found this thread and had to throw mine in there. It's a 63 and it's for sale. $4k and you can finish it however you want.
It's listed on Craig's List Cleveland Ohio area.

here one 66 chevy on new haven craiglist
Picking me up an A100 today. Love this thread
So, did you get it?
We need pics and a description!
Here's mine freshly blasted...
Yep. Slant 6 automatic. Got it fairly cheap cause the tops caved in and some other damage. Spent 5 minutes and popped out about 75% of it. Guy didn't think it could be fixed so he was selling it as a parts van. I intend on fixing it and driving it someday. Relatively rust free.
I love what you did with yours. Using yours as an inspiration for mine.
That one is going to take some work, but you can do it!
If you want to see the structure of the roof seam, take a look at my thread on the 68 8 door on Vintage vans. I had to remove the whole skin to replace it. Lots of pics of the different layers involved.
Use either a floor jack and a 2X4 (rough in) or a hydraulic ram to push it back out. Work from the edges where it's not in much slowly toward the center. Basic body work stuff there. It's tempting to just jack up the center, but it will be better to work it out from the edges in...
Here's the cheap HF version
You got a link to that thread? I'm having a tough time finding it.
here you go...
Take a look through it all to visualize all the layers at that roof seam.
Of course, you could just fix the holes in the roof and leave the big dents.

Very nice. Let's see some interiors. Shag!
